DailyPay, the pioneer in providing employees real-time access to earned wages, announced today the appointment of Dr. Donna Hamlin – an internationally recognized authority in Human Resources – to its board of directors. Widely recognized for providing strategy, change management and human performance management services for Fortune 500 global enterprises in more than 44 countries, Dr. Hamlin joins the company as a board member to further the eponymous DailyPay Movement.

Additionally, data shows that employee satisfaction goes up 87% percent and employee absenteeism is reduced by 26%.

Offering immediate access to earned funds is a brilliant benefit,” said Dr. Hamlin. “As corporate leaders shift the way they think about employee pay, they are realizing the DailyPay Movement provides real, measureable improvements in employee retention and job satisfaction. I believe the market has been waiting for this for years and I look forward to working with the team to further this seminal change in the marketplace.
