Payroll FAQs

Organisations aren't always aware of the financial wellbeing needs of their employees. Many employees risk falling into debt between paydays; 35% of workers have less than a month's income saved. 

Wellbeing is a key element of an engaged, productive and resilient workforce and the financial aspect of it is critical to any organisation's wellbeing offering.

Through our partnership with Wagestream, we offer earned wage access (EWA) as well as a wider suite of financial education tools and resources that help empower employees to take control of their finances and reduce financial stress.
