The world is constantly shifting its needles because of technological advancement across different industries. Especially after the inception of the internet, net banking and digitalization have brought changes that were never foreseen. The way we lead our lives, the way we do our businesses, the way we earn money, and the way we pay money are no more traditional.
When we talk about a country like India, it has been developing faster over the last decade or so. However, some things ingrained deeply in the work ecosystem have not changed. There is a lot of strain especially financial, among the working class in the country. Thus, the government and the corporate world are opting for solutions to make their lives better and easier.

What is the solution to reduce financial strain?

When we talk about financial strain, the first thing that comes to our mind is how the payroll system works in different organizations in India. Taking salaries in advance at the time of need, getting it balanced off their overall payment amount at the month-end, or taking loans and getting into the trap of debt with heavy interests is a vicious cycle that people are forced to hop on. Recovering from the pandemic especially has fuelled this problem. There wasn't any solution for it until now.

But thankfully, we have Earned Wage Access system as an alternative to breaking away from paycheck to paycheck living. This concept is still very much novel here. In an attempt to define EWA, we can say that it is a product that enables employees to access a certain portion of their salary any time before their payday. This means that you can 'access your earned wage' in case of emergency or whenever you require it. Earned Wage Access gives your employees the flexibility and authority over their money. So they don't have to keep asking their bosses or any other outside resources. There is a sense of financial stability and relief. But now the question comes, how will this be possible? And who will make this possible? Let us try to answer it.

Who is an Earned Wage Access provider?

A person or team, as a provider, aids earned Wage Access services. This provider can collaborate with an organization, a firm, or a business company on a contract basis. They will be responsible for integrating and implementing the EWA system on your prevalent payroll software. A provider will be responsible for offering and managing services according to your company's type, scale, capacity, etc.

The business of the majority of EWA providers offers direct-to-consumer products. KiloPe does the same. KiloPe's earned wage access application equips your company's employees to build their profiles, keep track of their salaries, and access a portion of it any time before payday. The remaining amount is what you will get as your paycheck. KiloPe is a flexible financial alternative that will remove the burden of short-term loans from your employees and help them in managing their finances better. Now may, people might claim that is delusional or debatable, but researchers have actually testified to the fact that an Earned Wage Access system has impacted the employees in a positive way along with enhancing their engagement, productivity, and longevity rates.

Like a wish we didn't know we had, it got fulfilled because of technology.
