NEW YORK (August 6, 2019) – DailyPay, the leading provider of the daily pay benefit — a benefit offered through employers that allows employees to receive instant access to their earned pay, today announced a partnership with Shearer’s Foods, LLC., an award-winning manufacturer of high-quality snacks, including chips, crackers, cookies and wafers. Through this partnership, Shearer’s has made DailyPay available to more than 5,000 employees across 12 locations in the United States. With DailyPay, Shearer’s employees now have the financial flexibility to control the timing of their pay and to make secure, instant transfers of their earned but unpaid wages 24/7/365.
Shearer’s turned to DailyPay because the company was looking for a way to increase its recruiting and retention efforts through enhanced employee engagement, particularly among the workforce in their manufacturing facilities. In this historically competitive labor market, many businesses are looking at their benefits offerings to ensure that they are providing innovative packages that can help employees with day-to-day financial needs.
“Shearer’s strives to be the employer of choice and to enhance our team member’s experience,” Lisa George, Chief Human Resources Officer for Shearer’s Foods, said. “This new benefit helps our workforce access their earned pay, if needed, for an unexpected expense or to pay a bill on time, without incurring large fees. DailyPay is an innovative solution that delivers exactly what they need. We are excited to partner with DailyPay to help our associates have more flexible options to manage their personal finances. Empowered employees are happier and more productive, and we believe this helps to differentiate us in the marketplace.”
The company experienced a 15% enrollment rate after the first week of partnership with DailyPay and experienced no payroll challenges during the implementation of the program. They continue to see associate participation increase.
“Shearer’s makes some of the best snacks in the business, and that starts with the employees who care about these products and the customers who love them,” DailyPay Chief Executive Officer, Jason Lee, said. Shearer’s recognizes that to continue to produce a high-quality product, they need a high-quality employee experience that keeps everyone focused on the task at hand, and not worried about when they get paid next. We’re proud to welcome Shearer’s into the ‘DailyPay Nation’ and to serve their thousands of employees who keep America snacking.”
