Highlights
Summary

We're on a mission to connect employers with their frontline employees. 🚀

It’s an audacious, incredibly rewarding mission that our increasingly diverse team is dedicated to achieving. 80% of the world’s workforce don’t work behind a desk everyday, yet no one is building HR Systems that cater to these employees’ unique needs. 2.7 billion employees across the world work in factories, fields, restaurants or construction sites etc. Yet only 1% of enterprise software spending is allocated to these employees. 🗣

Jem is built around the idea that frontline workers should have access to the same technology that desk-based workers do. To that end, we plan to empower millions of people by making access to HR services more equal globally. 📈
