In industries that are heavily reliant on shift workers - such as hospitality, retail, last mile leisure and healthcare, the competition for workers is rife. But, for most businesses, it’s simply not sustainable to lean on pay increases and monetary bonuses as a way to incentivise workers. 

Enter: on-demand pay – an initiative that, stats show, has real legs where worker attraction and retention is concerned. If you’re unfamiliar with the concept, on-demand pay does what it says on the tin, allowing workers to access their earned money straight away, rather than waiting for a lump payment. This helps them improve their cash flow, and become less reliant on credit to stay financially afloat.

Research shows that:

  • 95% of workers prefer employers that offer on-demand pay

  • 73% of workers reported fewer unplanned absences because of on-demand pay

  • 79% of workers would be willing to switch employers for on-demand pay

The figures speak for themselves. As a business, offering on-demand payments to your workers could set you out ahead of the competition in a number of ways. The strategy is so effective that it’s been harnessed by some of the biggest companies with shift workers out there. Like Uber, for example, which has devised its own internal Instant Payouts system. This lets Uber drivers ‘cash out’ their earnings up to six times per day or, with the ‘Uber Pro Card’, get paid automatically after every trip.

In these financially turbulent times, it’s not difficult to see how this could make a real difference to workers, who seek greater financial stability as the cost of living soars. In turn, businesses are able to tap into the wants and needs of their workforce in a mutually beneficial way.
