EXCLUSIVE: Esop and MAS team up to educate employees

The Employee Share Ownership (Esop) Centre has partnered the Money Advice Service (MAS) to highlight the importance of financial education to employers.

Both bodies plan to lobby the government for more promotion of, and support for, financial education. David Poole, UK director at Esop, said: “Everyone knows financial education is a good thing, but few employers actually introduce a programme.”

Esop and MAS have set up some meetings with employers to discuss what they are doing around financial education and update them on the latest industry developments.
