“Today’s workers expect to be treated as consumers – they expect the same experience in every HR work-related touchpoint, as in their personal life.”

What is the true potential of HR and how can technology help us to achieve it?

In this instalment of our HRD Tech Founders Q&A series, Mark Paraskeva, Founder & CEO, paiyroll®, reveals why today’s workers expect to be treated like consumers in the workplace. This means giving them full control over their pay and benefits. Allowing workers to access pay-on-demand, not only reduces payroll costs, but means that workers are twice as likely to apply for a job and half as likely to leave.
