Whilst most are celebrating the New Year, for some of us, the spending activities in Decemeber leading up to Christmas are now dawning with the arrival of credit card statements. We all know of the economic problems that abound the country but the personal reality can now be upon us with perhaps limited funds available to make inroads more than a minimum credit card payment.
It is at time like this that people and families can find it stressful. Whilst there is no “instant cure” for these financial ills, for those staff priviledged enough to have an Employee Care Team in place through organisations such as Marketplace Chaplains Europe, there is a friendly face to share ones problems. Our team members are available to have confidential chats with employees and can often direct staff to specialists for further guidance.
