SXSW Startup: FutureFuel.io Helps Employers Attract Better Talent By Helping Employees Crush Their Debt and Fuel Their Future
Companies across the country are in a race to find the best possible talent to fill their positions. The best way to attract the best talent is to offer the best benefits. This makes sense right?
While many companies may believe that having ping pong tables, video games and free espresso bars is the way to a new employees heart, today’s millennial employees are looking for tangible benefits that will have an impact on their lives. One of these benefits is student loan assistance.
For decades students have joined the armed forces in hopes of attending college free or at a greatly reduced rate. Students going into the teaching profession can often find programs that will help pay down their debt or eliminate it all together.
Small and medium sized companies may think that they can’t offer student pay down as a benefit. A Boston startup called FutureFuel is making that possible.
FutureFuel offers a best in breed SaaS platform that empowers employers and partners to “turn on” student debt repayment as a new employee benefit either company wide or for special employee populations. After a company enrolls their employees in FutureFuel the employee has access to an easy to understand, feature packed dashboard that lets them know in real time just how much of their looming student debt has been paid back.
The feature packed FutureFuel platform puts the entire experience in an easy to understand platform. Features within FutureFuel help employees keep up with their debt repayment and help employers see their return on investment. Other features include:
- Simple and secure setup process
- Mobile first user experience
- Scalable throughout the organization
- Intuitive dashboards and analytics
- Real-Time notifications of payments
- Custom ROI Calculator
FutureFuel also offers refinancing and other value added products to these employees and helps drive financial literacy. Founder Laurel Taylor and her team, created FutureFuel to help reveal a new path to prosperity and a student debt free America.
