Empathy And Carallel Partner To Empower Employers In Providing Holistic Support For Employee Caregivers

Empathy | December 15, 2023

Empathy, the comprehensive support system for loss helping families navigate all its emotional and logistical challenges, announced a new partnership with Carallel, the leading provider of holistic support, guidance and assistance for family caregivers. Progressive, family-oriented employers will gain access to a unique blend of tools and services which empower their employees to navigate the intricate landscapes of both caregiving and grief. This collaboration will provide continuity of care for both the caregiving population and those who have experienced loss. More than 53 million Americans support a loved one as a family caregiver, and 61% of them are employed. Caregiving affects every facet of an employee's life, including their mental and physical health (57% report clinically significant levels of depression, stress and anxiety), work capacity (80% of caregiving employees said caregiving impacted their work productivity) and absenteeism (missing up to 12 hours of work each month due to caregiving responsibilities). Stress intensifies when the loved one they care for passes away. Dealing with the tasks associated with loss can take families over 12 months to handle, and costs them on average $12,702. The burden is amplified for those balancing a full time job,with 43% of employees reporting difficulties concentrating at work in the period after their loss, while also suffering from symptoms such as anxiety, panic attacks, and memory issues, which can persist for months. Together, Empathy and Carallel offer a comprehensive solution to help employers reduce healthcare costs, improve productivity and effectiveness, and increase retention by addressing the holistic needs of employees through every stage of caregiving and grief. Carallel's approach seamlessly blends live support from compassionate, expert Care Advocates with comprehensive digital tools and resources to create personalized plans that boost caregiver resilience. It is through this caregiver-centered, holistic approach that Carallel is able to provide caregivers emotional support, targeted guidance and practical assistance across a wide range of caregiving needs — from disability care to elder care and beyond. With a similar approach, Empathy extends Carallel's offering, enabling employers to provide human-centered, tech-powered support to employees who have suffered a loss. Empathy's award-winning platform is complemented by a full-fledged Care Team, including on-demand Care Managers, who provide personalized step-by-step guidance through all the emotional and practical challenges of loss. This partnership will enable employers to have more streamlined contracting and a more seamless experience for employees, facilitating continuity of care for families throughout all of life's greatest challenges. "Empathy shares Carallel's core mission of making big life challenges easier by addressing them holistically — both emotionally and practically. We are committed to providing a seamless and comprehensive experience for employees navigating the challenges of caregiving and bereavement," said Shara Cohen, CEO of Carallel. "This is a truly interconnected collaboration — applying similar philosophies to intertwined life experiences. By doing so, we are reshaping the landscape of workplace well-being to elevate the overall welfare of caregivers and those in their care. "Employees juggling caregiving responsibilities with their full-time work commitments often find themselves particularly challenged when coping with the loss of a loved one," said Ron Gura, Co-Founder and CEO of Empathy. "By partnering with Carallel, a leader in providing assistance and guidance for caregivers, we empower employers to offer holistic, full-circle support that encompasses both caregiving and bereavement as integral employee benefits. With this approach, employers can ensure continuity of care through life's most difficult moments." About Empathy Empathy is the comprehensive support system for loss, offering bereaved families holistic guidance and care for all of the administrative, emotional, legal, and financial challenges they face after their loved one passes away. Empathy's award-winning app and care team are trusted by leading employers and insurance carriers to support their employees and beneficiaries through life's greatest challenges, saving them time, money, and stress.

Novo Announces Novo Payroll for Small Businesses, Powered by Check

Check | January 25, 2024

Novo, the powerfully simple® financial solutions platform for small businesses, announced Novo Payroll. Working with Check, the leading payroll infrastructure company that pioneered the ability for platforms to embed payroll into their products, Novo has launched a payroll solution that is fully integrated into Novo’s platform of small business banking, budgeting, and working capital solutions, enabling small businesses to manage their finances from a single platform. “Traditional small business payroll solutions consist of standalone applications characterized by high fees, burdensome cash-on-hand requirements, and either clunky or non-existent integrations between payroll and business bank accounts,” said Michael Rangel, founder and CEO of Novo. “In collaboration with Check, we built a payroll solution that simplifies and speeds up the process of paying small business employees." Novo leveraged Check’s embedded payroll API to build Novo Payroll. With coverage in all 50 states, Novo Payroll streamlines the entire payroll process, from calculating wages to facilitating direct deposits and managing tax withholdings. This provides businesses with a comprehensive payroll solution that not only reduces administrative burdens but also ensures accuracy and compliance with regulatory standards. Novo has conducted a beta of Novo Payroll, and will make the product available to Novo’s more than 200,000 small business customers in the coming weeks. Key features of Novo Payroll include Affordable, flat-rate pricing: Unlike other payroll platforms where individuals have to pay extra for a range of features, Novo offers all of its essential features — including state and tax filings, end of year reports, and more — at $35 per month plus a small fee per worker. Working capital for payroll: Small businesses who may need additional funds for a payroll cycle can apply for Novo Funding, a fast and flexible way to access working capital that’s available exclusively to Novo customers. Once approved for Novo Funding, customers can use the capital in minutes. Next day payments: With Novo Payroll, recipients can opt in to receive their paychecks the day after payroll is processed at no additional charge. Instead of needing the necessary payroll funds days in advance, small business owners simply need to have funds available the day of payroll processing. Built-in accounting and budgeting tools: Since Novo Payroll is fully embedded into the Novo platform, customers can seamlessly set aside funds for payroll, taxes, savings, and more using Novo Reserves. Single- and multi-state payroll: Novo Payroll automates state tax filings for small businesses that have employees in a single state, as well as in multiple states. Human-powered customer service: Novo Payroll customers have access to a range of resources to assist with payroll questions, including the option to call a Novo Payroll expert. “We founded Check with the goal of making payroll easier for as many small businesses as possible. By partnering with Novo, we’re able to reach an even broader set of businesses, giving them the tools they need to save time and money on what is all-too-often a cumbersome task,” said Andrew Brown, co-founder and CEO of Check. “Novo has already burnished its credentials as a leading provider of financial services for small businesses. By embedding Check’s payroll, Novo is able to provide a one-stop-shop for small business financial needs.” Novo Payroll is the latest in a series of products Novo has built for its small business financial solutions platform. Recently, Novo announced a range of updates to Novo Invoices, the company’s free invoicing application that small businesses have used to receive more than $500 million in payments. Novo also announced Novo Funding, offering small businesses a fast and flexible way to access working capital. About Novo Novo Platform, Inc. (“Novo”) is the powerfully simple financial platform for small businesses. About Check Check is the leading payroll platform that pioneered the ability for companies to differentiate and open up new revenue streams by embedding payroll into their platforms. Historically, complex regulatory structures stagnated payroll innovation, making it harder for businesses to create their own payroll offerings. By building on Check’s best in class infrastructure, flexible API, and deep expertise, platforms can launch profitable payroll businesses much faster, and with little overhead or administrative burden. Since Check’s public launch in January 2021, leading vertical SaaS companies and large scale workforce management horizontal platforms have built successful payroll businesses on its infrastructure. Check’s partners collectively serve more than 250,000 businesses and over 4 million employees. Check is backed by Stripe, Thrive Capital, Index Ventures, and Bedrock.
