Growth continues at rapid pace with new customers and expanded advisory services; Jason Averbook recaps and shares industry insights via LinkedIn
Leapgen, a global digital transformation company shaping the future of work, announces its first half 2019 results. Leapgen credits a number of major milestones for its tremendous growth, including exceptional business performance, continued recognized innovation, key additions to staff, and the launch of Leap Now in late 2018, a unique subscription model offering on-demand subject matter expertise. Leapgen reports doubling of top-line growth year-over-year since inception, doubling its customer base in 2018 with key large Fortune 500 wins, and increased its subscription business by over 300% YoY. Leapgen also closed two significant acquisitions of existing communities of HR professionals to fuel its growth of its online community, FuelWork.
Digital Transformation and Today’s HR
Leapgen was founded in 2017 as the only global digital transformation company with a holistic approach to mindset, people, process and technology in designing and delivering modern, frictionless workforce experiences for midsized and large enterprises. Already unique in their application of human-centered design thinking and change management methodology, Leapgen stands alone by meeting customers where they are, either in traditional consulting engagements or in their subscription-based, on-demand coaching model called Leap Now.
Digital disruption continues to redefine and reimagine the roles of HR and payroll professionals, who have gone from payroll and employee relations to producing analytics and developing strategy. People leaders are uniquely positioned to design value-driving digital ecosystems that leverage people, technology and processes to create lasting business value. Yet Leapgen’s research indicates 3 of 4 mid-sized and large enterprises have no unified digital strategy, resulting in reactive investments, a disjointed worker experience, inefficiency, and increased compliance risk. “Closing the experience gap between the way it feels INSIDE the world of work and the way it feels OUTSIDE of work isn’t just an investment in talent and delivering what they expect,” expounds Leapgen President and Chief Services Officer, Mike Brennan. “Providing a seamless workforce experience both requires data (for relevancy and personalization) and produces incredible data, making HR the most strategic linchpin in the C-suite.”

Leapgen’s Unique Approach
The second consultancy of Chief Executive Officer Jason Averbook and co-founded by Mike Brennan, Leapgen provides a range of services to develop an enterprise’s digital HR strategy in support of workforce and HR technology, design frictionless digital workforce experiences, transform HR service delivery, and create antifragile Human Capital Management technology foundations to support meaningful people analytics. Leapgen focuses with equal passion on its vendor strategy, intended to move both enterprises and solution providers toward the future of work on a harmonious track.
“Leapgen has taken a truly consultative approach.

Scripps Company.
For solution providers, Leapgen provides product and market strategy, product feature validation, alliances and merger & acquisition advisory, and go-to-market expertise to help bring innovative solutions to market.

“The biggest shift in the past three decades,” explains Averbook, “is happening now in the HR technology space. We are not talking as much about WHAT the technology is but WHY we need to digitize the function and the sequencing necessary to do so instead of simply picking a vendor. HR technology supports workforce experience, and that’s all about design with people and purpose at the core. Over the past five decades, we’ve essentially been building technology for HR. Times have changed, and the audience has forever shifted; the new audience is the workforce and their experience.”
