Retaining talent, developing staff and ensuring employee engagement have never been more important. Successful engagement requires organizations to create an ongoing dialogue, where they listen to employee feedback, act rapidly on concerns and harness innovative ideas from frontline staff. Consequently, the old employee research model of annual surveys carried out by external HR consultancies is no longer fit for purpose. It is too expensive, too inflexible and makes it difficult for companies to retain control of their data.

According to ADP research, 91% of millennial workers and 82% of Generation Z workers said it is important for their employer to offer earned wage access. Over half (57%) of Generation X and baby boomer workers said it is important to them as well. "The Wisely platform solves problems ADP understands better than anyone else, The data-driven design of the Wisely platform provides an all-in-one solution and enhanced user experience that puts financial wellness, money management and spending flexibility into every employee's hands.
