Press Release: DailyPay Announces Partnership with 21c Museum Hotels

DailyPay Announces Partnership with 21c Museum Hotels

The World’s Most Innovative Hotel Group is Joining the World’s Most Innovative Payday Technology



(NEW YORK) May 14, 2018 – DailyPay, a financial solutions company that reduces employee turnover through instant access to earned income, today announced a national partnership with award-winning 21c Museum Hotels to bring easy access to earned but unpaid income to their 1,200 employees in nine locations across seven states. 21c was built with a passionate belief in the power of innovative and thought-provoking art to transform communities. Each location is a multi-venue museum featuring a contemporary art exhibition space open free of charge to the public combined with a boutique hotel and chef-driven restaurant.


Together, DailyPay and 21c are promoting financial wellness among their staff by offering a tool that lets employees withdraw earned money ahead of payday, giving them the freedom to pay bills on time, avoid non-sufficient funds fees, and reduce need for high-interest payday loans. 21c employees can now receive their earned but unpaid income whenever they need them, even on weekends and holidays, a benefit proven to increase employee engagement and reduce turnover.


Attrition is a serious concern in the hospitality industry. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, annual employee turnover in the hotel industry is currently at 73.8%, which equates to 6% of staff departing every month. This number has increased steadily since 2013. At over $4,000 to replace a single employee, high turnover has a significant impact to a hotel’s bottom line. 21c has joined The DailyPay Movement to help their employees mitigate financial hardships with access to earned income before scheduled paydays.


DailyPay offers 21c Museum Hotel employees immediate access to their earned but unpaid income through an intuitive, device-agnostic platform. After completing a shift, the net amount earned is added to an available balance from which employees can transfer up to 100% of net earnings and receive their money instantly.


“We are thrilled to partner with such a progressive and forward-thinking company like 21c Museum Hotels,” said Jason Lee, Chief Executive Officer at DailyPay. “21c is using contemporary art to revitalize our country’s most storied cities, and we couldn’t be happier to partner with them on this important mission.”


DailyPay works with mid-cap and enterprise companies in a host of industries, including cleaning, retail, healthcare and services.
