UPDATED: May 8, 2018 – These days, cutting checks is becoming less of a trend and employers are leaning more towards the less expensive and more convenient and eco-friendly direct deposit as a payroll option. Close to 10 million American households aren’t bank members at all and 5 million Millennials say that they don’t even want one due to their distrust of banks.
So what’s a company to do? Payroll cards are the option that many employers are turning to in order to save company and employee money while doing their part to protect and preserve the environment.
Netspend as a company offers a multitude of different prepaid debit options, but their Skylight One Card is set apart from the rest. In conjunction with Skylight Payoptions, this card not only acts as a versatile prepaid debit card, but also assists in helping make payroll convenient, simple and completely paperless for employers and employees alike.
Now, employees can take control of their money by paying their bills online, review their information and withdraw their wages in cash, all through the same account.
