Why set up Orka Pay?

Firstly, it’s important to understand why staff should claim and set up their Orka Pay accounts, even if they have no intention of using them:

  1. Orka Pay is beneficial to have on hand in emergencies. Suppose an employee finds themselves in a situation where they need money fast. In that case, Orka Pay can help them afford vital costs, like car repairs or unexpected household bills, without reaching for a credit card or going into an expensive overdraft.
  2. The Orka Pay app is free to download and keep on a phone.
  3. By simply leaving the app on their phone, they’re better prepared to manage money in emergencies with a safe and reliable way to access money. It can also be a helpful safety net whilst travelling, moving house or during similar activities.

Finally, if your workers can pick up more shifts, they know they’ll have access to the money straight after working. This can motivate staff who are able to pick up more hours. It gives them more control and autonomy over their finances, creating a better impression of your company.

How to encourage more staff to claim their accounts

Here are just some helpful tips you can use to get your staff more informed about the benefits of Orka Pay:

1. Market Orka Pay from the get-go

As Earned Wage Access is quite a new concept for many industries, Orka Pay is quite the pull when recruiting. More and more people, especially young employees, have expressed they would want more flexibility around pay.

Adding Orka Pay badges to your job ads, recruitment website, benefits overview and to your onboarding material won’t just let staff know it’s available but will show them you care about the staff’s financial well-being, too!

5. Nominate Orka Pay Superstars

If anyone in the company learns their way around Orka pay particularly well, they tend to help other employees get onboarded and claim their accounts, too.

From our side, it’s great to give these employees recognition.

We’ve created a process where you can easily nominate a Financial Well-Being Superstar. In return, we will send them badges to display their expertise and a little reward as a token of our appreciation!

People who want to can also add Orka Pay as a skill on our Orka Technology Group Linkedin page.
