The benefit means once colleagues have completed shifts, they no longer have to wait until payday to access funds.
All 6,500 colleagues will also have the option to use Safestream — a micro-savings tool that collects regular, small sums straight from pay packets.
Both services will be delivered alongside a range of financial education tools provided by Wagestream in conjunction with The Money Advice Service. This also includes webinars to give staff advice on how to manage their money and an online resource hub that identifies information and entitlements that are relevant to them.
Jo Foster People Director at Bupa Dental Care, said: “Giving our dental teams access to their pay when they need it is a great way for us to give something back to much-valued employees who go above and beyond every day.
“The app will be particularly useful for any flexible workers and to track overtime and allow colleagues to access their pay as soon as they have earned it.
“Wagestream has proved immensely popular with staff in the Bupa Care Services division, so it made sense to roll it out to our dental services arm.”
Wagestream’s offering represents a revolution in pay which reduces the financial anxiety and stress associated with unexpected expenses. Staff can draw on a percentage of their earned pay any day of the month for a flat fee of £1.75. There are no loans involved and therefore no interest is charged.
