Dandi Emerges from Stealth to End Workplace Bias with First-of-its-kind DEI Analytics Platform

Dandi | October 17, 2022

Dandi Technologies, the analytics platform for advancing diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) in the workplace, emerged from stealth today. The company unveiled a first-of-its-kind DEI analytics solution used by people leaders to pinpoint equity gaps in the employee journey and implement data-driven solutions to workforce diversity challenges. The company also announced $3.7M in seed funding led by Springbank and Alleycorp Impact to increase the number of people the platform positively impacts globally. "We believe Dandi can revolutionize the way companies recruit, retain, and compensate their people, Without the right data, people and businesses are left facing the same 'unsolvable' DEI problems year after year, while demands for racial, social, and financial justice from employees, investors, and regulators only grow stronger. Our platform is putting DEI analytics capabilities and insights directly into the hands of more leaders across organizations and making them easy to understand. You don't need to be a data scientist to use Dandi." -Jeff Fernandez, Dandi CEO and Co-Founder Developed by data, design, and DEI veterans working closely with a group of DEI advisors, the Dandi platform is underpinned by advanced machine learning and makes powerful, realtime DEI data easily available and actionable for every company. With Dandi, organizations can: Aggregate and analyze existing HR data to generate millions of DEI insights across the employee lifecycle, including recruiting, hiring, promotions, retention, and everything in between. Leverage intersectional measurement along with sophisticated wage gap analysis to see how interactions between race, ethnicity, gender, age, sexuality and more impact compensation and take meaningful steps toward pay equity. Integrate Dandi with most leading HR platforms, including Workday, ADP, SAP, Oracle, Greenhouse and Taleo, to easily see how factors like age, gender, LGBTQIA+ status, and marital status influence key metrics. Give C-suite executives quick and easy access to critical DEI metrics, updated in real-time, through an Executive Dashboard. Generate custom-branded presentations and export to Google Slides, Powerpoint, and more with a single click. Share easy-to-understand visualization and detailed reports to shine a light on equity gaps so the right people can take action. Employee turnover due to racial bias and unfair treatment has cost U.S. employers $171.9 billion over a five year period, according to research from the Society for Human Resources Management. Despite public commitments to DEI from companies in recent years, barely half of the largest U.S. companies share workforce diversity data. Moreover, only 11% report intersectional data – the gold standard for demographic data reporting. The large majority of companies do not have reliable, accurate measures for bias in place. With existing tools, it's nearly impossible to operationalize the concept of intersectionality. Dandi changes everything by allowing companies to see how these intersections affect the employee journey and take action, said Lily Lamboy, Director of Diversity, Equity & Inclusion at Blue Shield of California. Dandi has an established roster of customers including Fortune 100 organizations like Blue Shield of California, publicly-traded companies such as Oscar Health and Braze, and fast-growing technology companies like Teachable and Care/Of (acq. by Bayer). Dandi is quick to deploy and affordable: starting at only $15 per employee per year, it's priced to work for businesses of every size. In addition to Springbank and Alleycorp Impact, investors including Atlassian Ventures, Impact Engine, Uncommon Denominator, AAF, and Heirloom VC joined in funding Dandi's seed round. As a result of the round, Courtney Leimkuhler, Founder and Managing Partner at Springbank, has joined Dandi's board of directors. Dandi is creating the instrumentation for the workforce of the future. As more firms commit to DEI and as more regulators around the world demand the data to prove it, Dandi is providing essential tools for leaders and their teams. Jeff and the team have an impressive track record and vision, and I'm personally thrilled to be part of their mission, said Leimkuhler. AlleyCorp Impact is proud to co-lead this round and collaborate with its passionate, mission-driven team to position Dandi to be a vital solution in the arsenal of every company that is serious about building an equitable workplace, said Tanya Beja, General Partner at AlleyCorp Impact. Dandi is building the analytics tools to create a more equitable workplace for all teams. We're excited about its growth trajectory as more companies prioritize building data-driven DEI programs. Dandi's mission is deeply aligned with Atlassian's values and we look forward to supporting the Dandi team as it makes powerful demographic data actionable for Atlassian's 200,000+ cloud customers around the world, said Matt Sonefeldt, Head of Atlassian Ventures. About Dandi Dandi is the analytics platform for advancing diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) in the workplace. Businesses use Dandi to see—often for the first time—how they recruit, retain, and compensate their people, giving them the insights they need to pinpoint equity gaps and advance their DEI efforts. Through a team of DEI experts and an extended partner network, Dandi also offers the support businesses need to navigate the challenges of becoming fair and equal workplaces. Founded in 2017 by HR, DEI, data and design veterans, Dandi's mission is to make business better for everyone. Dandi is built by a distributed team with headquarters in New York City and Stockholm, Sweden.

Triton Benefits & HR Solutions Delivers Affordable Group Health Insurance to Companies Who Struggle to Meet Participation Requirements

Triton Benefits & HR Solutions | November 09, 2022

Triton Benefits & HR Solutions, a national employee benefits broker and HR consulting firm, is helping small businesses achieve their employee retention goals. An employer-sponsored group medical plan is the most sought-after employee benefit. Unfortunately, due to high participation requirements, many organizations are not able to provide a bona fide, major medical plan to their most valuable asset, their employees. As the end of the year draws near, Employee Health Benefits are at the forefront of HR departments. With the 2023 enrollment season on the horizon, many small businesses face complex challenges. A recent study by the Kaiser Family Foundation found that businesses with fewer than 50 employees are less likely to offer an employer-sponsored group medical plan to their employees. As a result of unrealistic participation requirements, many small businesses struggle to find affordable, quality healthcare coverage for their workers. Triton Benefits & HR Solutions deliver affordable group health plans that have traditionally been nearly impossible to underwrite when low employee participation is a challenge "If you're looking for a group medical plan, and only 5 out of 50 employees want to participate, typically no insurance carrier wants to write your policy. However, Triton offers businesses in these situations a 'Golden Ticket' with an insurance solution when only a small portion of the employees are looking to opt into the company's benefits plan," - Triton's CEO, Steve Rosenthal Triton manages over $500 Million in group health insurance premiums and works with all major carriers nationwide. Their ability to leverage long-standing relationships with major health insurance carriers and their in-depth industry knowledge to create unique and customized healthcare options sets them apart from other employee benefits brokers. In addition, they offer a concierge-style service which means they are extremely hands-on with every client relationship and provide a personalized touch that is hard to find anywhere else. If you're a business facing a low participation issue among your workforce and need quality and affordable Group Health Benefits, don't hesitate to contact Triton Benefits & HR Solutions by visiting their website or calling them at 1-800-OK-TRITON. About Triton Benefits & HR Solutions Triton Benefits & HR Solutions is a national group health benefits brokerage and human resource consulting firm. Triton is committed to helping organizations navigate the complexities of employee benefits and human resources. The company has offices in New York, Texas, and Philadelphia, headquartered in Woodbridge, NJ.

Firstup Addresses the Employee Digital Overload Crisis With New Data-Driven Enhancements

Firstup | October 20, 2022

Firstup, the first intelligent communication platform for the workplace that connects over 17 million employees worldwide, today unveiled a series of data-enabled platform enhancements designed to help employers build a more sustainable workforce by reducing the level of noise bombarding employees daily and deliver meaningful, personalized communication at scale. Recent research from Firstup found that over 70% of communicators and HR leaders recognize an increase in employee burnout and frequently discuss the corrosive impact of digital overload and the drain of workforce energy. While a majority (62%) believe great employee engagement can improve performance, retention and loyalty across their workforce, many said they lack the tools for an effective employee engagement program and more than half admitted to feeling overwhelmed when receiving too much communication through too many channels at work. These teams feel increased pressure to be more communicative and transparent with their distributed workforces, but without the right tools and data, their programs run the risk of turning into information overload and noise. Firstup has introduced a number of new intelligent communication enhancements into its platform to solve this digital overload crisis. The Firstup platform connects to and continuously captures data from all aspects of the employee experience ecosystem - from human resource information systems (HRIS) to recruitment, learning & development, talent acquisition, performance management, and more. Using that data to build holistic employee profiles based on attributes and activities, the platform can then determine what campaigns each employee should get, when and to which channels and orchestrate those communications at scale. Through continuous engagement insights spanning the entire employee journey, programs can become more personalized and effective for every individual employee over time. Now every company has even more power to connect the employee experience ecosystem, understand its employees better, and confidently get insights that can improve engagement, productivity and retention, with new features including: New Connections and In-App Experiences: Firstup unifies employee communications on a single platform and, with upcoming new HCM connectors (including Workday, SAP SuccessFactors, Oracle HCM, UKG), more systems will be able to send notifications directly into Firstup. In addition, a new employee hub will serve as a single access and action point for all important employee tools and systems, and an enhanced integration with Microsoft Teams provides an in-app experience and eliminates the need to switch in and out of apps. All of these features were designed to eliminate unnecessary complexity for employees and improve the signals to what matters most. Enhanced Universal Employee Profile: Organizations can gain an unprecedented view into their workforce with the Firstup Universal Employee Profile that pulls employees' attributes, channels, and activities from across multiple employee systems and delivery channels. The Universal Employee Profile is continuously updated and gets smarter from each activity, ensuring the next engagement is relevant, personalized, and meaningful. New Employee Journey Campaigns: HR and communications teams can identify the moments that define an employee's journey using the intelligence from the Universal Employee Profile and design end-to-end employee journeys. They can make every moment count and automatically trigger journeys based on events such as new hires, promotions, or new learning opportunities and more–and continuously update based on employee engagement. Optimized Intelligent Delivery: Organizations can optimize delivery of employee campaigns with the new Engagement Boost feature that intelligently predicts and orchestrates the optimal delivery channel and time, resulting in up to 3x increase in engagement results. With new delivery connectors being added, teams can now deliver content into even more employee experience platforms (e.g. MS Viva Connections, ServiceNow, Workday People Experience, Oracle ME, SuccessFactors), with new real-time delivery reporting capabilities. Continuous Employee Journey Insights: The platform can proactively push actionable insights to HR and communications teams so they can gain a deeper view into what their organizations, teams, and cohorts of employees are or are not engaging with, which can serve as an early warning for more significant problems, such as employee dissatisfaction, burnout or a need for change in the business. "There's no denying that the workforce is experiencing a digital overload crisis. Most organizations are trying to find a solution to the symptoms, like burnout, rather than solving the underlying problem, which is digital complexity, Businesses should focus first on building meaningful connections and look for ways to reduce digital noise, which might require different methods for different employees. Our platform empowers HR, communicators, and leaders to engage on a personal level, intelligently, throughout every employee's journey – which will mean better outcomes for all." -Nicole Alvino, CEO, Firstup About Firstup Firstup is the world's first intelligent communication platform. More than 40 percent of Fortune 100 companies use our platform to connect with their people, design and deliver personalized communications, and gain engagement insights throughout the employee journey. With Firstup, employers can view engagement data in real time, by organization, department, or employee. That helps leaders better understand their workforce, make informed decisions and provide better experiences from hire to retire. Companies like Amazon, Tesco, Ford, and Hilton use Firstup every day to improve outcomes for their employees.
