Motorway service area chain Roadchef is providing employees with access to flexible income with a new wages platform
The organisation is using Wagestream’s ‘Get Paid As You Go’ solution at Chester, Clacket Lane on the Surrey Kent border and Northampton, which cumulatively saw over nine million visitors pass through in 2018.
Employees at the three sites can now access and withdraw 30% of their earned income throughout the month rather than having to wait for payday.
A flexible income, alongside “just in time” financial education, will empower Roadchef’s employees to cope with unexpected expenses like parking fines or boiler replacements without having to turn to overdrafts, credit or high-interest payday loans.
provides employees with a number of other benefits on top of Wagestream’s ‘Get Paid as you Go’ offering, including access to discounts and benefits that are designed to help them save money on everyday purchases.
Mark Fox, CEO of Roadchef, said: “We truly believe it is our team that makes the brand at Roadchef, so it is key for us to be able to provide our employees with any support they need, be that financial or otherwise. We’re really looking forward to entering into a partnership with Wagestream and hope that by alleviating some of the stress a monthly pay cycle can induce, that we’ll be able to offer all of our employees, longstanding or new, a rewarding career with Roadchef.”
Laura Bunn, Director of HR and Development added: “We are proud to be partnering with Wagestream
to support our employees, we truly believe that our business is made up of incredible people and we are constantly looking at ways to fully support them. This is one of a number of initiatives within our ongoing people plan to support engagement and retention within the business.”
