Texas workforce returns to work
As an employer, if you are experiencing similar challenges, you must ask yourself the following questions:
- How do you attract the right talent if the original workforce doesn’t want to return to work?
- How do you retain and motivate your current workforce in this new normal?
1. How do you attract the right talent if the original workforce doesn’t want to return to work?
There are many ways you can attract new talent. Most companies are revisiting their current employee offerings, such as benefits and perks, to see what else they can do to attract the right talent. Below is a shortlist of things you could revisit or implement if you haven’t yet. Understanding that many businesses are financially conscious of their spending due to the economic downturn is worth noting; some options are more cost-effective than others, so keep this in mind as you rethink your employee offerings.
- Unique perks & benefits such as Earned Wage Access
- Increase wages
- Traditional Benefits (PTO, 401(k), Health)
- Sign-on Bonuses or Gifts
2. How do you retain and motivate your current workforce throughout this new normal?
So what is Earned Wage Access?
Providing an employee benefit such as Earned Wage Access will help retain, attract, and motivate your workforce and help alleviate stress by giving employees resources to reach financial stability. In addition, Earned Wage Access is a cost-effective option for employers if they partner with the right provider.
Pronto Pay's service is free to the employer because we believe we need to do good by enabling financial health. This benefit allows your employees to gain access to their wages as they are earned.
If you are an employer that doesn't offer Earned Wage Access as a benefit, we would love to hear from you! We are actively spreading the word of this benefit and onboarding new businesses across the state of Texas.
