In the last year, Bitly has launched several new initiatives and products that support this recognition. These include:
- Connections Platform: Bitly introduced an all-in-one connections platform that combines Link Management, Like-In-Bio, and QR codes with the goal of revolutionizing the way that brands and companies link the physical and virtual worlds. Making deep relationships with audiences is more crucial than ever in an age of information overload brought on by social media, email, and other technologies. Today, the connections platform serves 5.7 million monthly active users and more than 500,000 global customers.
- Spotlight on Inclusion is a free Bitly plan provided to non-profit organisations that fight for justice, promote equity and inclusion, or assist groups that are routinely oppressed. Organizations can access 3,000 links per month from Spotlight on Inclusion, along with robust analytics reporting.
- Putting DE&I first The global leadership team at Bitly is 59% female, and it will continue to work to improve gender diversity. The company’s DEI initiatives centre on making sure it’s a great place to work for everyone and continue to be a major area of focus. With its remote-first policy and efforts to eliminate bias from the hiring process, Bitly has designed its workplace to give women and people of colour more opportunities to join and advance their careers.
- The goal of Bitly is to make the internet a safer place for its users. Bitly uses a combination of third-party vendors, dependable tech partners, non-profit organizations, and its patent-pending Abuse Detection Technology to identify and address abuse on its platform. Bitly actively steers over 45M end users away from potentially harmful links each month to protect them.
