LOS ANGELES (November 18, 2021)—In honor of National Home Care & Hospice Month, Tapcheck, a fintech platform focused on improving employee financial wellness, has collaborated with Visiting Angels and Always Best Care, among other homecare industry players.
Partnering with Tapcheck provides homecare companies with a cost-free way to offer their employees access to wages as they earn them. This on-demand pay offering helps enhance employees’ financial flexibility, preventing them from having to seek out payday loans or overdraft on their bank accounts to cover expenses that crop up before payday.
“People don’t realize how much employers can change employees’ lives. With Tapcheck, we have been able to help minimize some of the stress that comes with unexpected expenses,” said Paul Gach, co-owner of Visiting Angels of Charlotte, NC. “Tapcheck was a no-brainer to implement because it comes at no cost to the organization. Its key benefit was making our employees happier—having advance access to wages has really made their lives easier.”
Tapcheck’s seamless integration with payroll systems and quick set-up times make it ideal for companies of any size. Homecare organizations are leveraging the solution as a cost-effective hiring and retention tool to remain competitive in an industry where high turnover rates are common.
“Offering Tapcheck’s on-demand pay solution has helped our franchisees differentiate themselves in the hiring market,” said David Caesar, vice president, franchise training for Always Best Care. “Financial wellness benefits are growing in popularity, and we are excited to help our franchise owners offer this benefit to their employees.”
In addition to on-demand pay, the Tapcheck app provides workers with access to financial education courses, resources and calculators that offer guidance around reaching key financial goals, such as buying a home or paying off loans.
“The home care industry plays such a crucial part of our society, and the pandemic has only increased the efforts required of caregivers in an already challenging role,” said Ron Gaver, Tapcheck co-founder and CEO. “This month we celebrate the efforts and perseverance of caregivers, as we continue to support home care companies and their employees on their financial wellness journeys.”
