Even in these days of online shopping and cash-free living, more than 1.3 million people in the United Kingdom don’t have access to a bank account. This can be a big problem for temporary workers and migrant workers, particularly if they have recently immigrated, as they often get declined for standard bank accounts due to a lack of credit history or no proof of address.

As an agency, you could make both your life and the lives of all the temporary workers on your books a lot easier by automatically signing up all your staff to a payroll card. Discover some of the benefits of payroll cards within this blog post:

Why all Your Temporary Workers Should Have a Banking Account

Membership of a payroll card can save you time, resources, and admin costs that you would normally incur when employing workers without a bank account. 

You eliminate the need to print and distribute checks, for instance, as well as the time you would have to spend chasing timesheets and payments. This means you save instantly, but also in the long term.

Worker Retention Through Additional Benefits

Your workers will enjoy added benefits, such as a cashback rewards scheme or the ability to send money abroad.

These benefits are likely to lead to a happier workforce that is more loyal to your agency and clients as your workers are benefitting from a  – plus a good agency reputation can never hurt to gain you more business in the future.

Helping Your Workers Make Ends Meet

Similar to the point above, temporary workers are likely to feel more secure and at ease when they are given the opportunity to manage their own money. 

Having an e-money current account means that workers are able to take control of their funds. They can set up direct debits, buy items online, and withdraw cash at ATM’s which will provide them with a better idea of where their money goes on a monthly basis.
