Brightside is an all-encompassing financial care solution. It uses the best-in-class technology but has a human-centric core; there's a dedicated team of Financial Assistants that helps employees with anything ranging from retirement replanning to paying rents.
Brightside offers a holistic, mobile-first financial care platform that empowers employees to live happier, more productive lives by tackling the financial challenges they face on a daily basis. Their service connects your employees 1:1 with an expert financial assistant who listens to their unique challenges and needs to then help them navigate the best options available to them.
Whether those are existing employer benefits, Brightside solutions, partner solutions, or community resources, Brightside's financial assistants are never paid on commission and any kickbacks they receive from their partners are passed along to the employee as part of Brightside's KickForward‚Ñ¢ program. Solutions on their platform include early access to paycheck, payroll linked-loans, auto savings accounts, debt consolidation, budgeting, and plenty more.
Brightside integrates with Argyle, a real-time income data platform that helps you securely connect your employment records to different apps and websites.
Brightside is the brainchild of the late Shawn Leavitt, an innovator in employee benefits. Based on his own experiences with financial stress, he decided to create a solution rooted in technology with a human touch, to improve the financial health of working families. And thus, Brightside was born.
