A popular benefit
Tim explains that Orka Pay and the Earned Wage Access it provides hospitality staff has become popular as a benefit for employees.
“Lots of people use it. They find it useful and helpful. It removes the stigma of having to ask your employer for a loan. It’s anonymous, and no one needs to know. We mention it during the recruitment process, as being able to access your money right after working a shift is quite a benefit.”
Stepping Stones Leisure wants to be a fair and responsible employer, so any solutions they use must be ethical, and Orka Pay fits the bill.
“Another thing I like about Orka Pay: it’s not money lending. It’s a much safer and more modern solution. Rather than going to a loan shark, unscrupulous people or asking family members, you’re accessing your own cash.” says James.
