Beyond Tipping: How eTip Enables Holistic Wellness for Hotel Workers
Tips don’t just help hotel workers make ends meet; they contribute to an overall culture of financial wellness. At eTip, we’re committed to a world that empowers all employees to easily manage their financial lives. Studies have shown that more than half of American adults are financially anxious, and more than two-thirds live paycheck to paycheck. We get it, especially after the pandemic year we just had, and we’re here to help hardworking hotel staff get back on their feet and stay that way.
An exciting development on the eTip platform is that of the eTip debit card, a physical card that is mailed to tipped employees with their name on it, as well as a digital wallet option. Tips received via eTip will go directly to this card for those employees who opt in, and they can use those funds for whatever they want just like a regular VISA card. Hard-earned tips go straight to employees’ digital pockets! Keep an eye out for more details as this initiative develops.
Alongside this service, eTip is partnering with leading banks to provide resources for making tip money work in employees’ favor, encouraging saving, investing, and other best practices for financial wellness. According to one study, nearly three-quarters of Americans believe they’re financially literate, but the majority couldn’t complete simple personal finance calculations around things like compound interest and debt. This initiative is aimed at engaging, educating, and empowering hotel workers to maximize the impact of their tips for achieving long-term financial wellness and self-care.
Investing in your employees’ personal and financial well-being translates to better morale, higher productivity, and empowerment across the board. And with improved employee experiences comes improved guest experiences – a true win-win. eTip is prepared to support you and your employees not just with our cashless tipping solution, but with a holistic and sustainable approach to your employees’ financial wellness.
