The Problem – Consumer Debt Trap
A huge industry exists to meet the needs of the unbanked and underbanked. These services are expensive and carry onerous terms (e.g. Pawnbrokers, Check Cashing Outlets, Pay-Day Loan stores, etc.).
At least 60% of workers suffer from moderate/high levels of financial stress. It is the #1 cause of anxiety, ahead of health, work, relationships and crime/violence.
These Economic woes drive:
- Increased number of on-the-job accidents (60-80% stress related)
- Escalation of health care costs (75-90% of doctor visits are stress-related)
- Increased levels of theft
- Unplanned absences and tardiness
- Reduction in quality and quantity of work
- Decreased 401k participation
- Lower-wage employees face severe stress and financial challenges when confronted with a cash flow crunch. Services to solve these problems often create a vicious cycle of debt (particularly Pay Day Loan services).
- Payday Loan users are your employees.
- Untenable situation–results in high level of stress and impact on productivity.
- Bottom Line: Financial stress costs an organization 10-20% of an employee’s annual salary.
The Solution – On-Demand Payroll
