COVINGTON, La., July 31, 2020 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Netchex, a payroll and HR technology company, announced the release of a new system feature designed to make workplace giving easier and more accessible to businesses of all sizes. Appropriately named 'Helping Hands,' this new feature facilitates charitable campaigns to be launched company-wide and enables employees to make donations via an automatic payroll deduction.
Helping Hands was developed as a direct response to current events affecting people worldwide—a health and economic crisis coupled with social unrest. "In these moments, we recognize how much more we can do. Rising up in these times means providing meaningful solutions that make real impacts in business and the communities where they live. This is what Helping Hands was designed to address," explained Netchex CEO, Will Boudreaux. "Employees everywhere have a passion for causes that do good work and provide relief in the communities in which they live. With Helping Hands, employers can lean on Netchex to be the philanthropic conduit to bring awareness to the causes most important to their teams and make giving easy for all."
Helping Hands does exactly that. It provides employers and employees with an easy and efficient way to learn about charitable campaigns that are available and make donations through payroll contributions. Employees can give one-time, staggered, or continuous donations. Employers are also able to match employee donations up to 100%.
Within the Netchex system, administrators can create charitable campaigns complete with timelines, goals, campaign history, and up-to-the-minute tracking. Companies can even run multiple campaigns for different organizations simultaneously, which gives employees different options to support the causes they care about most. Helping Hands comes at no additional cost and is available now to every organization that uses the Netchex system.
The benefits of a workplace giving program like Netchex's Helping Hands extend well beyond the donations themselves for businesses, including better customer loyalty and advocacy, more successful recruiting and retention efforts, and overall increased employee engagement and morale.
Helping Hands is just one of the many new features that Netchex has added to its system in recent months as a response to current events, most notably the coronavirus pandemic. As new Federal legislation and relief efforts have been released, Netchex has offered continuous, new solutions for employers to institute, track, and remain compliant with new coronavirus-related laws, including the Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA), CARES Act, Paycheck Protection Program (PPP), and more.
Founded in 2003, Netchex has become one of the industry's fastest-growing payroll and HR service providers. Netchex's single-source solution is a cloud-based, end-to-end platform for managing the employee lifecycle from hire to retire. With powerful, yet easy-to-use technology and award-winning customer support, Netchex currently services over 4,000 clients.
