GIMO x Mobicast: Enhancing Employees’ Welfare With An On-demand Payment Platform

  • 6 July, 2021
  • Posted by: GIMO TEAM

“As the BOD of Mobicast, we believe that it is necessary to constantly explore new ways to enhance employee’s engagement and welfare. At first, the BOD was not yet able to evaluate the benefits of the program. However, we have been successfully persuaded with the positive feedbacks from our own employees, proving to us just how useful the program can be.”

Ms. Tran Thuy Duong, HR Manager of Mobicast

Introduction

Keeping employees’ best interests at heart, the human resource management team at Mobicast constantly pushes themselves, looking for ways to ensure and enhance employees’ welfare. However, due to the lack of options, they have yet to find the most suitable and optimal solution until GIMO came into the picture. Starting from 2020, Mobicast collaborated with GIMO to adopt our on-demand payment platform as a new financial benefit for all employees. 

The Challenge

In Vietnam, EWA (Earned Wage Access) remains a relatively foreign concept. Not many companies have had the chance to study and try for themselves, Mobicast included. At the beginning stages of implementation, Mobicast’s board of directors cannot accurately evaluate the benefits of this new program. Not only so, implementing such a new tech-based program can be timely and costly to the human resource department. 

Our Practice

GIMO organized a launching event for all of Mobicast’s employees to equip them with the necessary information about GIMO and our platform. After the launch, GIMO also prepares a condensed questionnaire to survey the employees’ experience with our mobile app and their purpose of usage. We also collected the testimonials of the human resource management team members. 

Key Takeaways

69% of the respondents used GIMO for emergent payment. This was concluded to be the most popular reason among the respondents. Aside from that, 38% uses GIMO to pay off their credit card, and 31% uses GIMO to make personal investments. It is safe to say that most respondents have financial burdens in their daily lives that need to be taken care of with urgent cash payments. 

On average, each of the respondents makes four payment requests every month on GIMO’s platform. Since provided with GIMO’s platform, the majority of the respondents seem to have used it regularly. All of the respondents have agreed that GIMO had indeed relieved some of their financial burdens. 

100% of the respondents had a pleasant experience using GIMO’s platform. The majority find that the app is easy to use, and the request is processed relatively quickly. Additionally, the overall rating for the app is now at 4.31 on a scale of one to five, showing that the respondent has little to no trouble accessing their earned wage every month through GIMO’s app. Ms. Dung, one of Mobicast’s employees who have been using GIMO for the past six months, stated that GIMO has helped with her finances quickly and conveniently. Thoroughly enjoying her experience, she has also recommended GIMO to her friends and colleagues, giving highly positive feedback. 

GIMO’s survey has proven that when employees can proactively access their earned salary, their lives seem to have significant improvement. The financial burden is an issue for every working human being, and GIMO’s solution can help with just that. Not only are we giving employees rightful access to their earnings but also bettering their personal financial management.
