Specialty Coffee Company to Use Mogul’s Innovative Talent Sourcing Platform


(NEW YORK) -  Mogul, Inc., a disruptor in HR Tech and executive recruiting, today announced that it has signed a deal with Philadelphia-based La Colombe Coffee Roasters, a leader in the beverage industry, and a company whose mission is to change the world by making people happy. 

“What started out as a vision for serving the best coffee became an opportunity to influence meaningful, long-lasting change, said Rachael Elstad, Senior Vice President, People and Culture, La Colombe Coffee Roasters, “Ethical practices are deeply rooted in our brand culture and business, and that begins with ensuring that our workplace is inclusive and our teams are diverse.”

Mainstream talent acquisition platforms – software that companies use to recruit employees – tend to favor non-diverse candidates and can limit the number of candidates sought for a role. 

According to Elstad, La Colombe found Mogul’s innovative Talent Acquisition Platform to be a refreshing alternative to the mainstream software solutions. With access to more than 494 million diverse candidates, and no limit on search results, La Colombe can now source a deeper level of diverse talent than ever before. 

Additionally, Mogul’s patent-pending diversity filters allow recruiters at La Colombe to find candidates by gender, ethnicity, veteran status, and disability status. No other talent software offers the same combination of abilities as Mogul’s platform, particularly for finding diverse talent.
