Financial safety for employees
Ellis has amazing feedback on how Orka Pay helps the members of staff.
“I was doing an induction for a member of staff. They said their car had popped a tyre. It was late in the month, so they used Orka Pay to put a new tyre on really quickly and easily. They didn’t have the stress about not being able to afford it. When they fed that back to me, it’s a really nice feeling to know you’ve helped a person in that way.”
Orka Pay is designed to be a safety net for employees, providing flexible pay for care staff. Where they may previously used credit, overdrafts or other unfavourable methods of accessing money, Orka Pay gives them a safe and convenient way to access funds in emergencies, putting them in control of their expenses.
“It’s about being able to access the money when you want it. Traditionally, you don’t really hear of it. It’s normal to wait until payday to access your money, no matter the consequence, and I think changing the norm on that is really good. And the feedback we’ve had from our staff has been fantastic.”
