HR company Partena Professional is launching an app that allows employees to determine when they receive their wages. They request advance payments on their already earned wages via the app.
By law, white-collar workers must be paid at least once a month for their work done, and blue-collar workers twice. But employees can request and receive an advance payment more often via the Payabl ‘app, and according to Partena without any administrative hassle for the employer. The employers who introduce the system still decide for themselves whether to approve or reject the requested early payment. They can also set a maximum daily amount and the period in which applications are possible.
Doesn’t something like that encourage you to spend more and faster? “We want to create a culture of trust,” says Jonas Pollet, innovation manager at Partena. “When guiding employers, we take into account people who exhibit a bit too cheerful publishing behavior. They have to make sure that there is still something left at the end of the month. You want to prevent employees from spending more than they earn. Determining a daily amount is very important here. ”
The public that Partena does want to reach are, for example, recent graduates who still live from payslip to payslip. “Sometimes you may receive invoices that you did not expect. We all come across the situation that the washing machine breaks down. Then you can wait until your wages arrive at the end of the month, you can take out a credit card with associated costs, or you can request an advance on your wages. ”
Not for free
The advances come at no extra cost for the employees, but the system is not free for the employers: depending on the number of employees, it costs them 50 to more than 245 euros per month. Companies that have their wage calculations done through a competitor of Partena can also use the app.
According to Pollet, there is already a lot of interest, especially from the interim sector and cleaning workers. “But there is also a lot of interest in the service market, for example from an engineering company in the port of Antwerp,” he says.
