Companies are finding the process of hiring seasonal workers increasingly challenging, so many are trying to attract workers with different types of seasonal employee benefits. Earned wage access is one benefit that can be offered to employees that helps businesses save money. 

Challenges in Hiring Seasonal Workers

Like previous years, thousands of seasonal jobs are available at retailers, warehouses, and businesses that see demand spikes at the end of the year. However, unlike in previous years, businesses are having difficulty finding and hiring seasonal workers to fill all the jobs available. 

There are a few reasons for the hiring difficulties among seasonal workers, despite the millions of unemployed people because of the pandemic. The first is there is increased competition for jobs between companies. Also, workers are concerned about COVID-19. Plus, many cannot find or afford childcare now. 

And COVID influenced what jobs are available. There are more work-from-home or remote positions advertised every day.

Offer Earned Wage Access to Attract Seasonal Employees

Many companies have added benefits to entice seasonal employees, including having a backup for childcare, flexible hours, and discounted flu shots.
