SmartLinx looks to help employers improve retention by alleviating the recent increase in financial insecurity plaguing healthcare workers
SmartLinx, announced its collaboration with Rain, a global leader in financial wellness. Through this partnership, SmartLinx looks to address today’s challenges with financial insecurity, hiring and retaining skilled workers, and reducing employee turnover in the healthcare sector. This collaboration expands SmartLinx’ solution offerings to deliver Rain’s robust, on-demand pay and financial tool kit functionality directly to employees using SmartLinx without requiring payroll integration or post-payroll reconciliation, at no cost to the employer or employee.
Since the start of the pandemic, 1 in 3 healthcare workers has experienced financial insecurity. These financial difficulties are not only stressful for employees and their families, but they are also incredibly disruptive and distracting and can potentially lead to delivery of lower quality of care. Access to wages and greater financial freedom provides an opportunity to improve nurse and patient experience. In fact, nearly 60% of employees state that they would work harder for an employer that provided same day pay.
“Our workforce management integration with Rain gives our clients the opportunity to support their workforce through immediate access and relief to wages for participating employees,” said Mary Ann Mirto, Chief Customer Officer, SmartLinx. “This partnership is just one additional solution in which we bring our mission of “Caring for Those Who Care”, alive.”
