WorkLLama partnered with Jobs for Humanity, a company that connects underrepresented talent — such as “ethnic minorities, single moms/parents, the neurodivergent, members of the LGBTQIA+ community, military veterans, refugees and the blind/low vision” — with open roles. With the partnership, the companies aim to offer global organizations access to “untapped,” diverse talent communities.
Founded in 2020, Jobs for Humanity is a non-profit staffing organization that claims to help make inclusive hiring seamless, scalable and sustainable. The firm also provides diversity training to employers looking to attract and hire diverse talent.
The new partnership includes an integration between the companies’ products. Most notably, it will allow the open roles of WorkLLama users to be automatically dispatched to Jobs for Humanity’s talent network. The integration will also allow potential candidates to submit their application directly, which the companies believe will ensure “an accessible and inclusive application experience.”
Jobs for Humanity Founder Roy Baladi said, “With WorkLLama, organizations now have unlimited access to our diverse talent pool automatically, giving them an immediate new talent channel aligned with their DEI goals.”
Access For All
The collaboration with Jobs for Humanity is one of a few notable partnerships WorkLLama has entered this year to further their goal of helping underrepresented communities gain access to meaningful work.
In April, WorkLLama partnered with TAP (The Ability People) a consulting and advisory services firm focused on inclusion in the workplace, with the goal of creating an inclusive culture for all workers. Together, the companies said they would “enable all candidates, regardless of ability, and help guide companies to ensure their talent attraction and recruitment processes are accessible, provide a safe and equitable experience for all candidates, and have a positive employer brand in the disability community.” The companies also promised a series of workshops and other educational opportunities as part of the partnership.
