Lucid partners with Bridge to enhance its award-winning workplace culture

Lucid

Challenge

In 2016 Lucid was a rapidly-growing, Series A company looking to scale its Utah-based engineering team. An increasing percentage of current and prospective employees were recently graduated international students from nearby, engineering-focused universities, including BYU and University of Utah. CEO Karl Sun, a former practicing attorney, and VP of Engineering Brian Pugh were seeking an immigration provider that could both: 

i) empower Lucid’s international employees through the traditionally opaque corporate immigration process (“individual empowerment” is one of the company’s core values) and

ii) deliver operational efficiency beyond what a traditional law firm could offer (“innovation in everything we do” is another one of the company's core values)

Approach

Onboarded each international employee to Bridge, allowing employees and People Operations team to track key immigration dates (e.g. work authorization and status expiration dates) and application status in real time
Collaborated with senior People Operations leaders to benchmark and standardize company’s immigration policy
Conducted on-site training with Talent Acquisition focused on compliance, immigration issue-spotting, and best practices for recruiting international employees
Successfully completed over 50 immigration applications through our high-touch, technology-enabled process
Lucid
“Bridge gave our international employees direct access to ease their anxieties, while accelerating processing times and reducing People Operations time spent.”
Kat Judd
VP of People Operations and Associate General Counsel
