Money and Mental Health Policy Institute

Money and Mental Health

It’s just common sense isn’t it; if you are stressed about money then your mental health will suffer.

Hastee is part of the solution allowing people to manage their finances in their own way and not dictated to by societal and cultural norms.

We are constantly on the look out for content to share that inspires people to think, act and ultimately improve their financial wellbeing.

One of those fighting the good fight, is the excellent Martin Lewis who you will know from Money Supermarket fame, but he is also one of the founders of The Money and Mental Health Policy Institute.



Money and Mental Health Policy Institute is an independent charity, committed to breaking the link between financial difficulty and mental health problems, something very much close to our hearts. They conduct research, develop practical policy solutions and work in partnership with both those providing services and those using them to find what really works.

They have an abundance of content accessible to everyone here, so please have a look when you have a moment if you want to improve your, or your teams, financial health.



Employee Benefits Live

The Hastee Pay tech, sales and leadership team were out in force at EB Live last week. We had some fun.

For me, it felt like the lights are really starting to turn on for prospects and partners alike. I’m paraphrasing, but I heard words to the effect of: “I get it. This whole disrupting payday thing seems to be here to stay” a lot.



What I found most refreshing, though, was the extent to which exchanges were thoughtful, open-minded and guided by a healthy scepticism. It might sound obvious but the red thread was employee wellbeing and conversations rarely deviated.

And it led to some revelations about personal finance horror stories. Horrors that Hastee Pay would have helped avoid.

And then there’s the diversity. Positivity came from all backgrounds – public and private sector organisations; 2 employees to 10,000+ employees; young workforces to older; high earners and low earners. And that’s exciting – because it’s an indication of the market continuing to expand and the applicability of what we do, more relevant by the day. We’re learning with clients and prospects. And that’s cool.

Final thought: the ExCel is a bloody mile away. I never cease to be amazed by people’s willingness to schlep it across to the docklands!!

We’re based in London but we’re not London-centric so we’ll be at similar events to EB Live up and down the country over the coming weeks and months.

We looking forward to more debates, laughs and learning! Till next time
