2023 Impact Report Shows Payactiv EWA Cuts Reliance on Payday Loans
SAN JOSE, September 27, 2023 – Payactiv, the leading provider of employer-integrated holistic financial wellness benefits, has released its 2023 Impact Report. The report reveals how employer-sponsored Earned Wage Access (EWA) helps U.S. workers avoid financial hardships and increase job satisfaction.
Impact on Loans and Overdrafts:
The data confirms that timely access to earned wages helps avoid dangerous debt traps.
One user commented, “without access to Payactiv, I would struggle to eat and commute to work, potentially risking my job.”
“Timely access to funds when you need them the most is an antidote to predatory products. Our 2023 Impact Report proves that EWA reduces the need for high-interest loans and provides safer access to money,” said Safwan Shah, CEO and co-founder of Payactiv.
Increased Job Satisfaction: A Win for Employers
The report indicates a strong link between EWA, employee satisfaction, and higher retention rates, making it an attractive benefit.
EWA Is a Life Saver
“…every employer should offer this service to their employees, this service is a life saver,” said one respondent.
The benefits go beyond individual relief. Happier employees mean an engaged, and a productive workforce, marked by reduced stress and absenteeism. This improves recruitment, retention, and enhances the company’s bottom-line performance.
“Businesses looking to boost their employer brand should prioritize offering EWA. It’s good for the employees, good for business and good for the society,” added Shah. “The tangible impact of EWA on individual lives leaves us inspired and we have never been more hopeful about the future as we see more businesses starting to invest in building a more equitable future for all.”
Businesses have everything to gain by prioritizing EWA and true financial wellness, shielding their workforce from financial vulnerability isn’t just a benefit, it’s a testament to their commitment to creating a resilient and empowered future.
