I am passionate aboutSustainable job creation at fair wages and reducing inequalities by creating
greater awareness and exposure among job seekers in the blue collar segment.
A blue-collar worker isn’t hired; the job is sold to the highest bidder.
This is applicable to most migrant workers who go overseas in search of
economic empowerment. Our society can’t stand on its own without the
support of these workers, yet, they are treated like a commodity as a network
of middle-men influence the hiring process, making it archaic and cumbersome.
Being a people person, I have always pursued things that connected me to
individuals from different walks of life. Originally coming from a state with
high youth unemployment rates and a large outflow of migrant blue collar
workers, I am well versed with the challenges of this sector and am
determined to build a system that is more transparent, ethical and fair to
both job seekers and employers. Via technology and modern hiring practices,
we can solve big human issues, create real socio-economic impact, increase
the overall Happiness Index and ensure greater productivity in this segment.
ActionsEach blue-collar worker is unique, with different skills and experience to
offer. We need to move away from the traditional “one size fits all”
model and help job seekers realize their potential by placing them based on
skills and experience rather than job desperation, or judging them on factors
such as age / gender. ZoEasy is dedicated to bringing a positive change to
the blue-collar segment, with particular focus on improving youth employment
and reducing gender bias. By removing middle-men from the equation, managing
expectations and eliminating surprise factor, we actively engage and match
potential job seekers with ideal employers (and vice versa) in a more
transparent, accurate and ethical manner. With training, skills,
psychometrics and experience being at the core of this hiring process, and
via collaboration with different source country governments, we are able to
educate job seekers and place them with best-fit employers who are rated
based on thorough background checks, review and feedback mechanisms.
