Managing personal finances can be stressful, which impacts on how people feel at work.
Responsible companies acknowledge it. They are getting more and more concerned about the financial wellbeing at the workplace and look for innovative solutions.
On one hand, when Human Resources receive a bailiff request to pledge the salary of an employee, they see firsthand the damages of over indebtedness caused by payday loans or fast cash loans.
On the other hand, in an increasingly competitive labor market, companies can’t continuously raise salaries without limits. They need to find creative ways to retain their talents. They look for building a better working environment.
