“We are honored to be recognized as a leader in workforce management through these impactful awards,“ said Sanish Mondkar, CEO and founder at Legion. “The labor shortage has made many industries like retail, hospitality and more rethink their workforce attraction and retention strategies.

The selection was based on factors including patent activity, business relations, investor profiles, news sentiment analysis, proprietary Mosaic Scores, market potential, competitive landscape, team strength, and tech novelty.
