Landrum HR | January 07, 2022

Workplace News
Comprehensive HR solutions provider LandrumHR announces a strategic partnership and integration with the pioneer of responsible earned wage access (EWA) solutions, Instant Financial, enabling clients to provide employees with on-demand, same-day access to earned tips.

Instant Tips is an efficient, convenient, safe and secure digital solution for employees and employers alike, eliminating the need for large amounts of cash on hand for paying out tips to employees. Instant also features reporting tools for employers with back-office solutions to track daily tips, employee lists, reconciliation, and settlement reports. Additionally, the Instant Support team is available 24/7 to help employers and their employees find success with their offerings.

Instant Tips marks first phase of LandrumHR's new earned wage access offerings.

"We partnered with Instant Financial to enable our worksite employees to cash out tips directly into their accounts, with no fees, immediately after they work, We're very excited to offer this service, as access to earned income has been a pain point for many clients, particularly in the hospitality industry."

- LandrumHR President & CEO Britt Landrum III.

LandrumHR is already working on expanding its relationship with Instant in 2022 to provide same-day access to hourly and salary wages in advance of scheduled pay periods. The implementation of both Instant Tips and Instant Pay will give small and medium-sized businesses an advantage in attracting and retaining talent in a competitive labor market.

"The COVID-19 pandemic sped up an already existing shift toward employee demand for instant access to wages, and we know from recent industry surveys that demand is expected to grow, even post-pandemic, LandrumHR is a leader in providing a full range of HR services for small and medium businesses, and our partnership enables employers to provide workers with immediate access to their tips, aiding with hiring and job loyalty."

- Tal Clark, CEO, Instant Financial.

Employees who use Instant will gain easy access to their tips via the Instant Visa Card with bank transfers, a network of over 37,000 free ATMs nationwide, and a cashback option that's free with purchase at participating merchants. The Instant app also provides employees with a notification when tips are loaded in their account and ready to access.

Instant Tips is the latest addition to LandrumHR's range of PEO services, following recent new offerings like Health Advocate for wide-ranging medical support and LandrumHR Learn for professional development and HR training.

Current LandrumHR clients interested in earned wage access can contact their HR Business Partner for more information. Prospective clients are encouraged to reach out at landrumhr.com/contact-us.

U.K. Essential Services Provider Selects UKG to Support Rapid Growth, Empower Its 10,000-Employee Workforce

UKG | May 21, 2022

UKG, a leading provider of HR, payroll, and workforce management solutions for all people, announced today that M Group Services, one of the largest essential infrastructure services organizations in the U.K. and Ireland, has selected UKG Dimensions to support its rapid growth and provide a more transparent and empowering employee experience. M Group Services employs more than 10,000 skilled specialists and provides services within the water, energy, transport, and telecommunications sectors. With 240 locations, 19 operating businesses, and continued growth by acquisition, the organization sought a flexible workforce management solution to support its complex and highly remote workforce as well as improve productivity and operational efficiency. “We have a mix of salaried and hourly employees, including meter readers, utility workers, field systems technicians, and engineers — many who work offsite each day. There’s also a lot of complexity in our business and how we pay people based on the type of work they do, For years, we’ve relied on spreadsheets to capture the hours our employees work, which has proved to be a cumbersome and inaccurate operation. Dimensions will automate those processes to ensure we’re getting the data right and paying our people correctly. Dimensions will empower our people to be in control of their time by allowing them to record their hours directly in the system, In turn, that will give us much-needed, real-time visibility into labor hours so we can charge clients correctly and ensure every employee paycheck is accurate.” -Colin Jellicoe, group human resources director at M Group Services. A key driver for the organization’s selection of Dimensions is the ability to integrate with the company’s payroll solution, which M Group Services estimates will save more than $1 million in administrative costs. Jellicoe added that the Dimensions mobile app will deliver a more transparent and engaging experience for all employees, which is critically important to the organization. M Group Services believes the increase in employee engagement will result in an increase in retention. About UKG At UKG, our purpose is people. As strong believers in the power of culture and belonging as the secret to success, we champion great workplaces and build lifelong partnerships with our customers to show what’s possible when businesses invest in their people.
