Stonegate has partnered with two technology platforms aimed at improving staff training, retention and engagement.

The I-choose app allows staff to view rotas and payslips on line, take on extra shifts and swap shifts with colleagues.

Wagestream enables hourly paid employees access to up to 30% of their earned wages at any point during the pay cycle, and can accessed via I-choose.

The Wagestream app also provides budgeting advice, such as how to understand payslips, and offers financial welfare support in conjunction with The Money Charity and the Money Advice Service.

Separately, Stonegate has launched a new Learning and Development platform called ‘Academy on Line’, which hosts on-line training staff need to complete and learning modules that support Stonegate’s award Career Pathway.

Stonegate HR Director, Tim Painter, said: “I-choose and Academy on Line are both significant innovations to further improve the training and engagement of our 14,000 colleagues across the business.

“Academy on Line reflects people’s desire for bite-sized learning, delivered on an engaging and user-friendly platform. I-choose provides real time access to information that people need about their pay and their shifts, and provides the flexibility that people increasingly want in their lifestyles.

“Wagestream will additionally help our colleagues with their own financial planning and general financial well-being.”
