Quality work on the fringes

New Labor Market: New Tools

A third of adults seek employment but not a job. We work within public agencies to systematically support these marginalized individuals. Bringing them into the formal labor market solves worker shortages.

 

America’s public workforce system spends billions on infrastructure, training, interventions, and data gathering for people seeking a job. But millions of breadwinners need work to fit around unforeseeable, day-to-day, fluctuations in childcare, medical issues, family caregiving, studying, retirement activity, or partial employment they want to retain.

We are a non-profit that came out of British government programs. We have a platform for all types of lower skilled personalized work built around W-2 status, protections, control for work-seekers, progression, data collection, supportive interventions, and ladders into jobs.

Now also launched by public agencies in California, our GoodFlexi platform is expanding with philanthropic funding. ARPA projects make 2023 a good time for any state or city to extend its public labor market infrastructure beyond jobs. So many residents need an alternative to exploitative “gig work” apps.
