Austin, TX: Levee, the leading platform in helping the service sector find, hire and retain the best talent, was featured in ALIVE Venture’s inaugural Impact Report as a leader in positive outcomes for the service sector in Latin America. This report was published as Levee unveils its new website, showcasing a global brand identity that marks an evolution as they bring its solution to the North American market.
ALIVE, short for Acumen LatAm Impact Ventures, is one of Levee’s investors and works with high-growth companies that are innovating to address economic inequality and transform the lives of low-income communities across Latin America. The Impact Report was produced by ALIVE using impact data collected by independent research firm 60 Decibels, which conducted impact studies of ALIVE’s portfolio to assess how ALIVE’s companies change the lives of their beneficiaries.
Levee’s solution, which removes human bias from recruiting practices by automating key components of the hiring process, performed well across a number of data points:
- 63% of Levee-powered hires identify as a person of color
- 80% were women
- On average, hires through Levee experienced a 50% reduction in the gender pay gap
“I am proud of the impact our platform has achieved in Latin America,” said Jacob Rosenbloom, cofounder and CEO at Levee. “Technology has historically underserved service sector workers, the largest talent pool in the world, and we are deeply committed to changing that paradigm by making it easier to connect talent to jobs that they will succeed in.”
Across the entire ALIVE portfolio, Levee achieved the highest quality of life impact score, showcasing the platform’s ability to positively transform the lives of frontline talent by quickly connecting them with jobs in their communities.
“As seen from the impact data collected, Levee deeply impacts workers who find jobs via the platform,” shares Virgilio Barco, Co-founder and Managing Director at ALIVE. “Levee’s solution also plays an important role in a broader, systemic sense by helping to overcome biases in recruitment, increasing opportunity for groups who have traditionally been excluded from formal employment.”
Along with this report, Levee also unveiled a new website with an updated message and brand identity. This comes as Levee begins to see considerable traction in the North American market as they work with HR and Talent Acquisition organizations in food service, hospitality, and more.
Their technology has already seen success in helping these organizations find talent faster all while driving more equitable outcomes.
