Hyer teams up with Catch for new era of work

Hyer, a leading on-demand labour app connecting businesses to independent workers in the gig economy, has partnered with payroll and financial services provider Catch to extend modern benefits to independent contractors.

The partnership will see Hyer provide its pool of independent workers, its ‘Taskers’, with access to an easy-to-use platform for their health insurance and personal payroll, including automatic tax withholding, retirement planning and savings.

Hyer said the pandemic spurred rapid growth in the gig economy. With 36% of the US workforce participating in gig work in 2021. However, as independent work continues to grow, accessing benefits remains a challenge, Hyer said. This is the challenge the company is aiming to address through this partnership.

Kristen Anderson, CEO and co-founder of Catch, said that there is a need for more modern financial services to support the shift from traditional employer-employee work to independent work.

Dave Dempsey, CEO and co-founder of Hyer, said, “As we watch the massive shift taking place from the traditional 9 to 5—our partnership with Catch enables us to support our Taskers in working the way they want—without the added stress. Through this winning partnership, workers get the flexibility they crave along with the benefits they need to thrive in their independent work.”
