The Hastee Pay tech, sales and leadership team were out in force at EB Live last week. We had some fun.
For me, it felt like the lights are really starting to turn on for prospects and partners alike. I’m paraphrasing, but I heard words to the effect of: “I get it. This whole disrupting payday thing seems to be here to stay” a lot.
What I found most refreshing, though, was the extent to which exchanges were thoughtful, open-minded and guided by a healthy scepticism. It might sound obvious but the red thread was employee wellbeing and conversations rarely deviated.
And it led to some revelations about personal finance horror stories. Horrors that Hastee Pay would have helped avoid.
And then there’s the diversity. Positivity came from all backgrounds – public and private sector organisations; 2 employees to 10,000+ employees; young workforces to older; high earners and low earners. And that’s exciting – because it’s an indication of the market continuing to expand and the applicability of what we do, more relevant by the day. We’re learning with clients and prospects. And that’s cool.
Final thought: the ExCel is a bloody mile away. I never cease to be amazed by people’s willingness to schlep it across to the docklands!!
We’re based in London but we’re not London-centric so we’ll be at similar events to EB Live up and down the country over the coming weeks and months.
We looking forward to more debates, laughs and learning! Till next time
