LCP, the independent pensions consulting firm, has hired Heidi Allan to join its growing Financial Wellbeing team.
Heidi joins from Neyber where she was Head of Employee Wellbeing. In this role she was responsible for the creation of the financial wellbeing, education and engagement strategies for organisations such as Anglian Water, Travis Perkins and DHL. She also spearheaded the development of the firm’s thought leadership on the subject, leading and carrying out research on the topic amongst employers and employees.
Prior to Neyber, Heidi worked for Barclays and Mercer and has over a decade of experience in the field.
Heidi will join LCP’s team who deliver bespoke financial wellbeing programmes for organisations based on in-depth data analysis of their employees through LCP’s unique analytics tool.
The team help organisations develop and implement strategies to allow employees to:
• have greater control over their day to day finances
• improve their ability to withstand a financial shock, such as an unexpected bill
• have greater financial freedom to make choices, and
• have a financial plan for the future.
Commenting on her appointment Heidi Allan said: “Financial worries can have a big impact on people’s decision making which can have a knock-on effect on their day job. Employers are increasingly realising that developing a strong financial wellbeing strategy will improve productivity, but this can only be done with a thorough analysis of employee data and the demographics of the individual organisation. I’m excited to be joining LCP’s dynamic team.”
Laura Myers, Head of DC, added: “More and more employers are realising that helping their employees navigate their finances is not only the right thing to do, but also makes good business sense. We are delighted to have Heidi’s business and research expertise to provide clients with data led strategy and cutting edge thought leadership.”
