Pay on Demand™ for Manufacturing

Exempting 2020, which had exceptionally high turnover, the manufacturing industry averages about a 30% employee turnover rate per year. And according to Gallup, “The cost of replacing an individual employee can range from one-half to two times the employee’s annual salary,” which greatly adds up year over year.

You need benefits that will differentiate you. Pay on Demand, a wage advance benefit, allows employers to give employees access to a percentage of their daily earnings at the end of their shift. Offer instant pay with no additional costs, fees or payroll process changes.
