Each year the Davey Awards honor the Davids of the agency world who get Goliath results with nimble teams. This year, Beyond took home two Silver Davey’s; one for their antibias tool in the ‘Website – Social Responsibility’ category, and one for their Future Planet concept in the ‘Website- Green/Eco-Friendly’ category.
antibias encourages recruiters and hiring managers to assess candidates based purely on their credentials and achievements — not on superficial traits. The chrome extension replaces LinkedIn profile photos and names with geometric patterns, removing any potential bias when reviewing job applicants. This supports a more accurate assessment of applicants, and helps diversify the upper portion of the hiring funnel.
Future Planet, available on Google Assistant powered devices, showcases how voice technology could be used to help build a better future for the planet. It aims to help create environmentally friendly behaviours by stating key environmental facts and then posing challenges that people can easily complete in their day-to-day lives (like forgoing plastic straws). With continued use, this simple voice app can create a lasting global impact—it only takes about 66 days to form a habit.
In addition to this year’s win, last year Beyond team also brought home a Davey for their work on Flavors Hook Kids.
The Davey Awards is judged and overseen by the Academy of Interactive and Visual Arts (AIVA), a 700+ member organization of leading professionals from various disciplines of the visual arts dedicated to embracing progress and the evolving nature of traditional and interactive media.
