Who are we?
AurumGold was founded to help organisations improve the wellbeing of their workforce. With AurumGold’s 20 plus years’ experience in the finance industry, we found an increasing demand for services to specifically address money anxiety among employees.
With that in mind, we developed a unique approach that helps organisations and their people to reduce that money anxiety and thrive.
We have worked with a wide array of organisations such as county councils, family law firms, care and residential homes, colleges, government departments, companies in manufacturing, in IT and finance. We have an excellent track record for delivering on our client’s objectives – no matter the size or type of the organisation.
I’m Phill Holdsworth, Managing Director of AurumGold. Like so many others, I have struggled with money anxiety through financial pressures. My work has been influenced by both my personal experience and by my 20 plus years in the finance sector. I would like to share with you my story, so that you can find out what led my wife and I to help others into financial wellbeing.
I want to help people who worry about money and experience anxiety, to better understand themselves, their relationship with money, and what their own true aspirations are, whilst simultaneously improving their money management skills.
There is nothing more encouraging than seeing someone who I’ve helped discover a brighter future and who goes on to become a valued contributor within their family and place of work.
Our mission is to promote emotional and mental wellbeing in the workplace. Helping individuals and organisations to perform at their peak, our aim is to inspire a healthier, happier and more engaged working environment.
Our vision is to create healthier and happier working environments where everyone can thrive. To achieve this, we will provide ongoing, holistic care and support for employees and management, for the benefit of everyone.
Our business draws inspiration from Kintsugi, the ancient Japanese art of fixing broken pottery with golden lacquer. Just as Kintsugi makes the repaired piece more beautiful and stronger than the original, we look to draw upon the hidden gold that lies inside every individual – rebuilding them and inspiring them to become stronger and to achieve their full potential.
What is Financial Wellbeing?
94% of UK employees suffer from money anxiety according to the latest figures – a stark statistic.
However, the ripple effect of this is significant too, with nine out of 10 larger UK businesses (2.4 million) suffering due to poor employee financial wellbeing. This costs UK employers more than £120 billion every year through stress related absenteeism, presenteeism, lower productivity and employee churn.
Within our society there are people who love to use their money to make others feel special and valued. There are others who believe in the importance of maximising every penny and don’t like to waste anything. In addition, there are those who love to create memorable and enjoyable experiences, using money to forge important relationships and invest in the next generation.
Perhaps we can all, at some time or other, identify with these descriptions. So, when life events put a strain on meeting these values, it’s not surprising that worry and anxiety can quickly follow.
“True Financial Wellbeing is not just about money!”
Just as important, if not more so, is understanding our Attitude, Beliefs, Values and Habits, where money is concerned. This is critical to making sustainable plans for now and producing workable goals for the future.
Money Anxiety isn’t confined to any particular area of a person’s life; it can affect our work; our relationships; family, and our social life too.
“How can I support my employee’s mental health and relieve their money anxiety?”
Through bespoke online and in-person workshops, an online flexible learning community and 1-to-1 coaching we help people understand their relationship with money, build confidence, feel in control, and have peace of mind.
This helps them develop strategies to manage money effectively and so move towards a less stressful and more authentic life. Organisationally, the net result is happier, healthier, more productive, and loyal employees.
