Chattanooga Startup Launches Free Job Mapping Software

Wednesday, October 25, 2017

A Chattanooga startup, Eduity, LLC, has launched an open alpha version of its job mapping software. The free online tool is described as "an easy and powerful way for employers to plan their workforce, with their workforce’s help."

Dr. Greg Laudeman, Eduity’s executive officer and founder. said, "Staffing can be an uncertain, difficult, and costly process for employers—especially small and medium ones. Constant change makes it harder. How can employers plan better, more proactively and strategically?

“The key is to tap into employees’ knowledge about their jobs. As a social platform Eduity enables those closest to the work to provide input on needs and priorities. Employers can better identify critical jobs, gaps, and overlaps, and address them before they become issues.

“Our vision is for everyone to help companies develop, recognize. reward, and retain talented workers as well as find and hire them. Hiring employees is just one part of the workforce challenge. Job mapping can save everyone a lot of time, money, and headaches, especially as labor markets tighten and technology races forward.

”Not only can any employer—and employees—benefit from job mapping; Chambers of commerce, educational institutions, industry associations, and local governments can, too. Eduity’s upcoming beta-version will allow job maps to be combined into region or sector workforce maps that show exactly where the skills are and where they’re needed."

Eduity invites everyone to try job mapping at

Feedback on Eduity’s alpha-version will go directly into the beta-version, slated for release in late Spring of 2018.

Signal Mountain Should Be Problem Solvers Around The City

Re: Roy Exum’s “Stay, Signal Mountain, Stay”  Well this article is something to think about. I think the split could go either way, and Signal Mountain schools would still flourish, as they have done for the past several years. What I'm worried about is why Signal Mountain has not yet had the guts to go be problem solvers at Howard, or Tyner, or Central. Why do ... (click for more)
