rapid!’s innovative payment solutions can help businesses improve recruitment and retention while boosting the financial wellness and productivity of employees. One such innovation is earned wage access (EWA), which has had positive impacts for both employers and their employees according to recent survey data:1

  • Employee respondents say EWA is nearly as important to them as retirement/401(k) (83 percent) and life insurance (79 percent).
  • Ninety percent of employee respondents say having access to money quickly in an emergency is very important to them.
  • Respondents say EWA helps them pay most of their bills on time (84 percent), pay off some credit card debt (67 percent), and put money into savings monthly (57 percent).
  • Employers report a 15 percent reduction in time-to-hire and a 21 percent reduction in 90-day turnover following the implementation of EWA benefits.

"Employers are rightfully concerned with providing financial wellness offerings that make the most impact for their employees," said Pragya Gupta, Chief Product Officer at isolved. "We're proud to partner with rapid! to provide solutions that create real-world impact for employees to access their pay when they need it."
