What our partners say

wagestream 3-2

“Partnering with the Retail Trust has been invaluable to us in helping retailers of all shapes and sizes to embed financial wellbeing solutions which make work more rewarding for their staff and in turn, strengthen their position as employers of choice. With the link between financial wellbeing and the health, happiness and resilience of workers so clear, financial wellbeing support is an employment trend which is only expected to grow in 2024.” 

Peter Briffett, CEO, Wagestream


Foot Anstey and the Retail Trust partnered to create a certification which supports retailers in reviewing and improving measures they have in place to protect their workers and deal with any complaints of harassment.

“Foot Anstey continues to work with the Retail Trust on numerous projects to highlight the ongoing harassment epidemic which faces retail workers and are proud to partner with the retail industry charity.”

Nathan Peacey, head of retail and consumer at Foot Anstey
