Implementing sustainable and inclusive employment opportunities through telecommuting, LikeU is creating thousands of part-time jobs and providing high quality services to Business Process Outsourcing sectors. The company brings greater efficiency to corporate clients since recruits have already been vetted and trained in specific services or products, making the hiring process three times faster.
coLABS’ investment in LikeU was made after a targeted search in Latin America for innovative companies tackling critical issues for women in the region. LikeU’s offering of access to formal employment to enable autonomy and self-sufficiency, particularly among the increasing number of female-led households in the region, made the company a great fit for the coLABS portfolio.
We loved that the quality of life of their customers was a top priority for this company and that they use an approach that is innovative in their region–telecommuting–to achieve that. This gives flexibility and skills training to the growing number of female-led households in Latin America and offers them a higher salary through the savings that corporate clients receive by using LikeU. It’s a win-win for workers and corporate clients.
