Chattanooga Startup Launches Job-Mapping Initiative

  • Monday, July 2, 2018

Eduity, LLC, is launching the beta-version of its free online job-mapping tool. The innovative software is a radically better way to get the right skills in the right place at the right time.

Workforce is the number one issue in today’s economy. Many great jobs go unfilled, while too many people remain under-employed or out of the workforce.

Job-mapping closes the gap between what employers need and what people can do.

“The key is to tap into employees’ knowledge, which is why we’ve created a social platform,” said Dr.

Greg Laudeman, Eduity’s executive officer and founder, “so those closest to the work can help identify the jobs, the gaps, and the overlaps.”

Job-mapping is being developed in Chattanooga by Eduity but will be marketed nationally. The initial market includes agencies, associations, and institutions that need detailed, actionable information about workforce requirements in their communities.

“Job mapping can save everyone a lot of time, money, and headaches,” said Dr. Laudeman, “especially as labor markets tighten and technology races forward.”

The long-term goal is no less than to transform workforce development. Eduity will provide more tools for collaborative workforce planning and development, based on job-mapping.

“Individuals need better tools to act as workforce developers as well as improve their own skills,” said to Dr. Laudeman. “By getting everyone involved, we crowd-source workforce and create local talent networks that increase people's incomes along with employers’ productivity.”

Eduity will officially launch a local job-mapping effort along with the beta-version of its software on July 23. Get more information and start creating your own job-map at https://www.eduity.net.
