Sabina Bhatia is an accomplished Leader and customer champion tirelessly fighting for the financial wellness of every American worker.  As a Chief Customer Officer at Payactiv, she acts as a daily advocate and amplifier for the needs of thousands of corporate clients and millions of lower-income workers.

After 20 years in Wall Street Sabina has been instrumental in building the financial category of Earned Wage Access which is a super interesting concept that we get into in the podcast. Think of hourly wage earners having access to the money they’ve earned for the hours they just completed the previous day without waiting for a paycheck.

Sabina is a member of the Conscious Capitalism Senior Leadership Network. 

She is also a MENTOR for Girls on the Run, a certified skydiver, a 5-time marathon runner, and a 2-century bike rider. Pretty sick right?

This interview taught me about a category that I didn’t even know existed and can be a major catalyst for the solution of a widening gap between the lower-income hourly wage earner and the high-income part of the population.
