Mega Franchisee Offers Employees On-Demand Pay Benefit
The Flynn Restaurant Group has teamed up with a daily pay provider to offer its employees instant access to their earned wages. That's no small feat considering the company, which is a multi-unit franchisee of Applebee's Neighborhood Grill & Bar, Arby's, Panera Bread, Taco Bell and related Yum! Brand restaurants, has more than 48,000 employees across the United States. The company's employees now have the flexibility to make secure, instant transfers of their unpaid earnings whenever and wherever they need them.
In a statement, Flynn Restaurant Group said it was looking to attract and retain great talent in a highly competitive landscape. Additionally, the company wanted to continue to innovate their benefits offerings and perks to show appreciation for their existing workforce.
With the new benefit, employees can transfer their accrued but unpaid wages to any bank account, pay card, or debit card, prior to their next payday. Employees can also track their accumulated earnings during each pay period using the available balance feature. It also helps them safeguard against unexpected expenses and provides an incentive to work scheduled and additional shifts to increase their available, earned balance.
"We are really excited to be able to offer this benefit to our employees and pleased to report the initial response has been very positive," said Betsy Mercado, VP of HR Flynn Restaurant Group. "We are optimistic that the success of this offering will continue and we hope that introducing this perk shows our employees how deeply we value every single one of them."
Flynn Restaurant Group chose DailyPay to implement the benefit because of the company's knowledge of payroll and systems, the ability to set up this program in the most efficient way possible, and their understanding of the restaurant space.
