Manna Inc. And Affiliates Join Forces with Payroll Services Provider DailyPay

Manna Inc. | January 28, 2022

On January 27th, Manna Inc., a premier restaurant affiliate operator in the United States, announced that, along with its affiliates, it has partnered with DailyPay to provide employees with financial benefits. DailyPay is a payroll service that employers can use to enable their employees to have complete control over their pay. It provides employees access to their earned pay instantly as soon as their shift ends.
DailyPay’s research has shown that such a payment set-up helps employees reduce the use of payday loans and avoid overdraft fees. With the partnership, Manna Inc. aims to reduce employee turnover and increase retention. The company and its affiliates operate restaurants like Wendy’s, Fazoli’s, Mark’s Feed Store, and many more outlets nationwide.
Mary Lazzaroni, Vice President of People & Development at Manna Inc., said, "When word spread that we implemented DailyPay, we had several previous team members reach out to us. They originally left for a job that offered weekly paychecks, we pay bi-weekly, but upon learning we have DailyPay, it was the financial benefit they were looking for to return to us. The DailyPay team made the integration to their platform seamless."
He further added, "We truly believe our employees find this to be a valuable benefit. 50% of our employees are enrolled in DailyPay – the only benefit we offer with such a high enrollment rate. Also, knowing that food is one of the top reasons to transfer funds we have even changed policy to ensure our team members receive a free meal on each shift, not just discounted food items."
DailyPay’s research has also shown that using DailyPay, companies that offer a daily payment option are able to fill open positions 52% faster than those that don’t. Such companies also experienced a 50% reduction in employee turnover.

In times of increasing employee choice and the ‘portfolio career’, does HR think about the talent in our organisations as consumers just as our marketing teams would view our customers and clients? Recent research by the Henley Business School suggests not. Professor Nick Kemsley, non-exec Director of Head Light and Co-director at Henley Business School Centre for HR Excellence will share the findings from research from Henley Business School. He’ll explain why he thinks many talent management models are based on out-dated assumptions and that a real shift of HR thinking and action needs to be taking place now. He will highlight the implications for how we talk to, work with and develop our people – and suggest how talent management software plays a role.

Topia Launches Remote Work Solution, Automating Immigration and Tax Compliance for HR Teams

Topia | October 21, 2022

Topia, the leader in Global Talent Mobility, launched an industry-first remote work solution that enables organizations to support and manage distributed workforces around the world. Topia's Remote Work Solution automates immigration, tax, social security and other risk assessments and approval workflows so HR can say "yes" to employee remote work requests without commissioning expensive, manual reviews or being drowned in administrative burden. Following the normalization of remote work during the pandemic, work location flexibility continues to be popular with employees, but poses risks for unprepared employers. A 2022 McKinsey survey finds 58% of Americans can work remotely at least part of the time, and 87% of workers given that opportunity embrace it. Globally, 45% of CIOs report that at least part of their workforce continues to be remote. However, surveys conducted by Topia find that approximately a third of employees admit to working remotely outside their home state or country, and only a third of those employees report all the days to HR. "Talented people want the freedom to live and work where they choose - even if only for a few weeks per year - and companies that want to attract and retain the best talent know they need to provide this flexibility to remain competitive, That is why we've designed our solution to make it easier for HR and executive teams to say yes to remote work requests within the scope of their remote work culture. Employees can use our solution to quickly get a sense of where they can and can't work remotely before making a request. And to support the teams dealing with these requests, we've automated the most time-consuming and expensive aspects of remote work compliance, while delivering an approval process that is inviting and empowering for employees. We know this combination will make our clients more competitive in the talent market." -Chantel Rowe, VP of Product, Topia A leading fintech company has begun using Topia's Remote Work Solution to attract and retain top talent while minimizing the costs of compliance. In just the first three days of using Topia's Remote Work Solution, more than 80% of its employees' remote work requests were auto-approved using Topia's automated immigration checks and workflow engine validations, saving the team at least eight hours in manual work. Flexible working is a priority for HR teams looking to attract and retain the best talent and drive employee engagement, Fosway research shows that for 90% of HR teams, flexible working is also an important part of future proofing the organization. With its new Remote Work Solution, Topia has focused its technology on supporting remote and flexible working at scale and across borders,said David Perring, Director of Research, Fosway Group. Officially teased in December 2021, Topia's Remote Work Solution has undergone significant upgrades. In August 2022, Topia acquired Pearl Global Tech and its immigration assessment engine Permiso, which runs pre-travel assessments for remote work and other types of mobility. Topia's Remote Work Solution can support all types of remote work arrangements: work from home, hybrid work, cross-border commuting, "bleisure" trips, temporary relocations and permanent relocations, to name a few. The process is straightforward and highly automated: Employees explore a list of pre-approved locations where they can work remotely, in line with company policy and their 'approach' to remote work They submit a request through an online portal – no spreadsheets and emailing necessary Topia automatically assesses the request against company policy and key tax, immigration and other risks Pre-configured workflows automate key steps, gather approvals, generate letters and initiate services Alerts and dashboards confirm where employees are working while respecting their privacy HR teams are under pressure to show value and impact across skills and talent mobility, Topia's focus on transforming the remote working experience across borders aims to help HR teams to become the enabler of talent mobility and promote real choice about remote and flexible working, regionally and internationally,said Perring. About Topia Topia is the leader in Global Talent Mobility. We empower companies to deploy, manage and engage employees anywhere in the world. The Topia platform enables organizations to deliver mobility as part of a broader talent strategy encompassing all types of employee movement – remote and distributed workforces, business travel, and more traditional relocations and assignments.
