We sat down with Sharon to deep dive into why partnerships and why Hastee. This is what she had to say:

Why EoD and why Hastee? 

Financial stress is a real problem which has only been exacerbated by Covid-19. As business leaders we have the responsibility to look after our people, many businesses offer benefits such as free fruit, gym memberships and free on-tap beer, but still only pay their people once a month, because that’s the way they’ve always done it. Research shows that less than 1 in 5 businesses offer financial wellbeing as part of their benefits, but globally, 98% of those who do, have seen a positive impact on their business.

For me, Earnings on Demand (EoD) is a no brainer, it is better for our people and better for business’ bottom line.  Hastee as an EoD supplier is also a no brainer (of course – I am a bit bias here!) we don’t charge the business ever, we wrap financial wellbeing support around your people, we offer an ethical solution to a real issue your people are facing, and I believe we are the most customer centric offering on the market and we really care about our businesses, partners and end users.

What makes you excited about partnerships? 

We are working in a relatively new space, we are defining a new industry and educating people on the power of access to earned wages, what’s there not to be excited about? It is so exciting to see the ground swell of interest and support from all partners, but especially those globally, such as Visa Direct and Kronos (UKG).

What do you think the EoD market will look like this time next year?  

We are seeing new players come into our market weekly, this is now a global movement and we are proud to be at the forefront of it. We are working with some of the biggest global brands that exist and also many SME’s who are the backbone of our country. I believe that this time next year EoD will be at the heart of many organisation’s people and growth strategies.  And Hastee will be helping millions across the UK, Europe and Latin America.
