Financial ‘wellness’ is becoming increasingly top of mind for employees and employers alike. With a myriad of options and existing benefits, how do you choose one that makes a true improvement to employees’ lives? Increasingly, forward-thinking employers, from small businesses to Fortune 100’s, are adopting earned wage access (EWA) as part of their benefits offering.
Earned wage access is a service that allows workers to obtain wages that they have earned, but have not yet been paid, prior to the worker’s regularly scheduled payday. With over 50% of employees likely to change jobs for more frequent pay (JD Power Banking and Payments Intelligence Report, March 2022), EWA is critical to recruiting, retention and productivity. Additionally, EWA can provide employees direct positive results, helping them avoid costly payday loans and overdraft fees, while paying bills on time and helping to save money.
