Lever Announces Winter Release and Significant 2021 Growth Helping Over 4,500 Customers Enhance Talent Acquisition Analytics Into Hiring Processes

  • New Analytics Updates Include Diversity Dashboards to Enable Customers to Further DEI Goals

Lever, a leading Talent Acquisition Suite, has announced their winter feature release, enhancing analytics capabilities and ease of use. Additionally, Lever is serving more than 4,500 customers and has added more than 100 technology partnerships and integrations in the last fiscal year; the company’s continued momentum makes it clear that hiring and talent acquisition has never been more important to brands and companies today.

The Great Resignation has shown no sign of stopping as the most recent Job Openings and Labor Turnover Survey¹ found a record-breaking 4.5 million workers quit their jobs in November 2021. This massive turnover has created one of the most competitive hiring markets, and Lever has helped businesses evolve, differentiate, and personalize talent acquisition strategies to appeal to top talent and even reach passive candidates. Lever customers are harnessing features like Lever Nurture — which has experienced a 174% YoY growth rate and over 5 million messages have been sent to date to proactively reach out to candidates in today’s competitive market.
