If you’re looking for ways to improve your employee experience and drive engagement, I recommend Wagestream.

I’ve worked on many projects over my years at Hungry Jack's and Wagestream would have to be the easiest benefit that I’ve ever implemented. And that was thanks to the support that was provided from Wagestream.

Jenny McKie
Chief People Officer of Hungry Jack's (Burger King Australia)

What made you decide to implement Wagestream? 

At Hungry Jack's, we sell burgers, but we are in the people business, so it’s really important for us to ensure we have a happy, healthy and engaged workforce.

These days, employees are looking for more than just pay. They want real benefits – things that make a real difference to their daily lives and make things easier for them in general. That’s why we’ve partnered with Wagestream.

 

What attracted you to on-demand pay? What was it about Wagestream in particular that you really liked? 

Wagestream provides our people access to their pay when they need it. That means prior to their pay cycle, whether that be fortnightly or monthly, so they can reduce financial stress by accessing their funds immediately.

 

How did you find implementation and payroll integration process?

I’ve worked on many projects over my years at Hungry Jack's and Wagestream would have to be the easiest benefit that I’ve ever implemented. And that was thanks to the support that was provided from Wagestream.

Wagestream made the whole experience so simple, guiding us through the process with their outstanding customer experience team.

Throughout the customer set-up phase, Wagestream provided us with around-the-clock support and tailored launch materials, making it a smooth and successful launch.

 

You had a huge 21% uptake within the first week, which increased to 23% in the first month. Could you tell us about any feedback you've received in that time?

Yes, I was really surprised – to have that level of uptake within the first few weeks of launching Wagestream was fantastic.

The feedback we've received has been amazing because of the simple fact that employees can now access their pay when they need it. This was especially the case for our monthly paid employees – just having access to their next pay in the last days of their pay cycle rather than having to go into their savings has been incredible.

We've also had feedback that just knowing they can get access to their money when they need it has reduced financial stress and supported their overall wellbeing too.

 

Would you recommend Wagestream to other employers?

Absolutely. If you’re looking for ways to improve your employee experience and drive engagement, I recommend Wagestream. They’ve been amazing to work with. And I thank the team for their commitment.
