We’re honored to be named in Forbes 2021 Next Billion-Dollar Startups. For the past seven years, Forbes has partnered with TrueBridge Capital Partners, who sought out 300 venture firms to nominate companies, while Forbes contacted 80 startups.

This recognition is a great way to kick off FY 2022 for us. We have big plans to accelerate our innovation of AI-powered workforce management that specifically addresses both businesses’ and hourly employees’ needs. We help companies optimize their labor efficiency and enhance their employees’ experience at the same time without compromising either side.

Our CEO, Sanish Mondkar, shared his thoughts with Forbes: 
“There is no innovation targeted at these hourly workers. Most employees quit these jobs because of schedule conflicts. The goal for the algorithms is to prioritize both sides.”

With all of the headlines about the labor shortage, many businesses share their stories with us about how important it is to attract and retain their frontline hourly employees. These workers have many more choices now. Some of our customers, including Philz Coffee, are promoting the Legion mobile app as a perk that helps employees provide their scheduling preferences, so they can partner with their employers to find the perfect schedule for both. And businesses also benefit from fully compliant scheduling.

Jacob Jaber, CEO of Philz Coffee, shared how Legion WFM has changed his company. “There’s often a challenge in meeting both business demand as well as employee satisfaction as it relates to schedules. Legion allows our team members to become active participants in the creation of their schedules and also makes it easy for us as a business to best serve our community. A magical accomplishment. Legion is the future.”

Recently, Forrester Research calculated that Legion customers get 13x ROI using Legion WFM. And our customers tell us that more than 95% of their employees use the Legion app every day because it gives them easy access to their schedules, so they can swap shifts, request time off, or pick up an extra shift.
