“Americans pay over $2 billion annually – that’s over $3,000 for every single citizen – in fees associated with short-term borrowing just to make ends meet. By collaborating closely with UKG, we’re turning control back over to employees, allowing them to access a portion of their earned wages when they want them, at no cost. Ultimately, this enables people to avoid burdensome lending charges – putting them on a path to financial security,” says Tal Clark, CEO at Instant Financial.

As organizations continue to adapt to the changing expectations of American workers, and battle the ongoing “Great Resignation,” providing tangible benefits like no-fee access to wages is critical for businesses looking to succeed in hiring valuable talent. Companies using Instant’s fee-free solutions are able to reduce turnover by upwards of 27%, while reducing the costs associated with absenteeism and more.
