Quilter launches mental health support hub for financial advice businesses
19 May 2020
Quilter has launched a version of Thrive, its employee mental health support programme, for financial advisers in the UK and internationally.
Thrive forms part of Quilter’s There for you website which was launched to support financial adviser businesses through the Coronavirus crisis.
Thrive materials can be accessed at: https://thereforyou.quilter.com/there-for-you/
The new resource offers a range of materials aimed at supporting the wellbeing of financial advisers and their clients during the pandemic, including:
The Thrive programme was initially launched to Quilter employees in 2018 to enhance their personal wellbeing and mental health. Quilter also has a Thrive ambassador network to promote the programme and engage colleagues.
Relevant extracts and downloadable PDFs directly from the employee toolkit are available to financial advisers from today. The hub will also include a selection of the best blogs from Quilter employees on how they have tackled their mental health challenges.
Talking about the extension of the service, Paul Feeney, CEO of Quilter (pictured), said: “This pandemic is the biggest behavioural and emotional challenge of our time and so I’m delighted we’re able to launch our Thrive for advisers site today as part of our wider programme of adviser support during the pandemic. We launched our Thrive programme of mental health support for our colleagues in 2018 as I wanted Quilter to be a place where it is ok not to be ok, where we can all put our burden down.
“Our workplace has now changed to our own homes and it’s just as important that we all feel supported, and that extends to the advisers that work with us.
“The hub is full of tools, resources, podcasts, webinars about building resilience and looking after your mental health at this time. I hope it will help advisers to reflect, and perhaps do some small things that will make a big difference. Clients place their trust in their adviser every day and to them they are more than just financial advisers, they are coaches and friends.”
