The patented workforce intelligence platform invented in Cleveland connects employers, job seekers and educators to effectively develop and employ its vast talent.

CLEVELAND, November 14, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — UnifyWork today announced the launch of its workforce intelligence platform, the first of its kind in the market. Its patented skills-based technology powers local talent networks by matching market demand for skills development with fair hiring to remove barriers associated with the traditional labor market.

These hidden workers already have, or could acquire, the skills necessary to succeed. However, there is a siled system of competency-based education and training in the United States that is misaligned, and UnifyWork is fixing it.

The UnifyWork platform replaces the tedious resume and application process with a brief assessment that identifies the skills and interests of the job seeker. The platform’s skill-based matching algorithm then presents certain in-demand jobs — including detailed job descriptions and salary ranges — that match the candidate’s unique abilities and preferences.

By leveraging UnifyWork to fill job openings, employers gain access to an untapped talent pool of pre-qualified candidates who won’t find them on traditional job boards. The platform also hides candidate identities until a match between employer and job seeker is established, minimizing bias in the hiring process.

Beyond connecting employers and candidates for today’s careers, UnifyWork is helping to ensure the long-term viability of full employment in the region. With UnifyWork, educators, workforces, and economic development organizations can gain real-time information on job supply and demand, and assess opportunities for upskilling or reskilling talent to meet current and emerging needs, tackling historical labor shortages head-on.
