Branch and Delaget announced a partnership to provide restaurant operators with a new tool for attracting and retaining hourly employees, at no cost to them. With this combined solution, operators can offer their employees financial wellness benefits such as free, instant earned wage access, budgeting tools, zero-fee checking accounts, and debit cards, with virtually no effort.
Operators who offer innovative benefits, like same-day pay, have an edge when it comes to finding and keeping restaurant staff. Branch’s integration with Delaget’s systems offers customers who opt-in a seamless process for relaying data and gaining access to Branch’s capabilities. The service is free to operators and their employees, and with this partnership, set-up is streamlined. Businesses using Delaget can quickly begin providing employees early access to earned wages instantly before their paycheck and other financial wellness tools, without requiring separate integration or replacement of existing systems.
“As nearly 80 percent of hourly workers experience some degree of pay variance from week to week, a benefit like Branch can help them better manage those financial fluctuations,” says Atif Siddiqi, Branch Founder and CEO. “Working with Delaget has allowed us to quickly deliver financial wellness tools to operators and their employees, without piling on additional costs or disrupting processes.”
Jason Tober, Delaget CEO, adds, “Turnover is a major issue in the restaurant industry, and operators are looking for compelling ways to attract and retain talent. What’s so exciting about this partnership is that when an operator leverages the Branch and Delaget integration, they get an immediate advantage over employers who don’t offer those types of benefits, without having to manually upload time and attendance data themselves.”
