We all know identity theft is a critical issue. A 2018 online survey by The Harris Poll indicated that 15 million consumers experienced identity theft in 2017. That’s a mind-boggling number.
Beyond the financial and psychological havoc ID theft wreaks on individuals, it can also exact a significant toll on businesses. How? Lost productivity. If employees are distracted by all the effort it takes to remedy a case of ID theft, they aren’t focused on their work or maybe they aren’t even coming to work.
PaySmart takes this issue seriously and has teamed up with IDShield to help you help your employees. (Stick with us – this isn’t a shameless product plug. This is a valuable resource we want to share with you.) IDShield is a program that offers employees important protection, including the monitoring of privacy, security, social media, and credit. IDShield employs a team of personal investigators to investigate and resolve cases of ID theft.
We’ve attached a PDF that outlines all the benefits of IDShield membership that you can share with your employees.
Now for the fine print: Employees can choose to protect themselves and/or their families with IDShield through a payroll deduction. There is no cost to you and there is no upcharge from PaySmart. Our goal is to continue to connect you with resources that help your small business thrive.
