Rockaway Home Care looks to improve employee engagement by offering employees an innovative on-demand pay solution
NEW YORK (July 18, 2019) — DailyPay, the leading provider of the daily pay benefit — a benefit offered through employers that allows employees to receive instant access to earned income, today announced a partnership with Rockaway Home Care, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that provides the highest quality home healthcare services to its clients throughout New York state. Through this partnership, Rockaway Home Care has made DailyPay available to its 3,000 staff members, allowing them to make secure, instant transfers of their earned but unpaid income, on-demand.
Rockaway Home Care’s partnership with DailyPay is an innovative approach to employee engagement and job satisfaction. As a result of offering this benefit, Rockaway Home Care is looking forward to increasing employee retention, enhancing its industry profile and improving recruiting efforts. The organization is also looking to create an additional incentive for staff to increase the accuracy and timeliness of their time punches on its electronic timekeeping system; pay for worked hours is updated in each employee’s available balance following accurately logged hours worked.
“As a result of offering this benefit to our dedicated staff of home care professionals, we hope to alleviate any financial stress that they may experience so that they can continue to provide top-quality care to our patients, whom we consider family,” Pinny Faska, COO of Rockaway Home Care, said. “Allowing our staff to access their earned income, when needed, helps them to pay bills on time, and it also helps them to obtain necessary emergency car repairs so they can stay working.”
With DailyPay, employees can transfer their accrued but unpaid income to any bank account, pay card or debit card, before their next payday. Employees can also track their accumulated earnings during each pay period using the available balance feature. In this way, DailyPay provides Rockaway Home Care employees with a safeguard against unexpected expenses, and an incentive to work scheduled or even additional shifts to increase their earned available balance.
“Providing home health services to those who need it requires a unique type of individual who enjoys helping others who need specialized assistance,” DailyPay Chief Executive Officer, Jason Lee, said. “By providing its employees with access to their earned income, Rockaway Home Care is demonstrating its commitment to serving those who serve others by allowing them to focus on their patients, not on when they’ll receive their next paycheck.”
DailyPay is the only instant pay technology that is fully compliant in all 50 states and can be implemented at no cost to businesses that choose to offer it.
DailyPay, the leading provider of the daily pay benefit — a benefit offered through employers that allows employees to receive instant access to their earned income, works across a wide range of industries, including quick service restaurants, hospitality, retail, healthcare and other services. One in six Americans now has access to DailyPay through our trusted payroll service partners like Paycor, ADP, SmartLinx, Netspend and other HR and payroll technology providers who offer the daily pay product to their customers.
