de Poel CEO launches revolutionary banking alternative for temporary sector
These & lsquo;underbanked’ individuals are currently excluded from making even simple transactions, like standing orders and online purchases.
Although Office for National Statistics (ONS) recently reported that the UK economy actually passed pre-recession peak in September 2014, after six years in the doldrums, we are still a long way off achieving financial inclusion for all.
Matthew Sanders, award-winning recruitment entrepreneur and CEO of de Poel (the £650 million neutral vendor and largest procurer of temporary labour in the UK) has launched the Suits Me card a brand new alternative to traditional banking for the temporary recruitment sector.
Suits Me membership includes the following benefits, to temporary agency workers:
A VISA debit card that can be used in over 24 million places worldwide
The secure benefits of online banking, with the ability to save funds in & lsquo;envelopes’
No hidden charges
Free life and personal accident cover for all members
Immediate access to wages and benefits accrued with on demand pay
Exclusive access to cashback rewards with major high street retailers
Sanders commented. “Through de Poel, and sister company Paraplus, we engage with tens of thousands of agency workers on a weekly basis. Yet, despite being willing and qualified to work, many more are unable to do so because of outmoded banking systems. EU residents, an integral part of UK plc’s workforce, in particular struggle to gain High Street banking facilities. For recruitment agencies, Suits Me is a fully inclusive membership which ensures guaranteed acceptance to any temporary worker, with just a UK address.
Sanders added, “We have worked hard to create a smarter way of working for recruitment agencies, who will now be able to access talent pools of workers that were ordinarily unavailable, due to a lack of backing facilities. Suits Me is the alternative to traditional banking for temporary recruitment agencies, giving all of their workers a VISA debit card with a selection of online banking facilities and benefits. We expect to welcome over 100,000 workers in the next 12 months, through more than 500 temporary recruitment agencies."
