As COVID-19 continues to impact the U.S. jobs market, two parallel situations have appeared: millions have lost their jobs or have been furloughed, while delivery companies, large retailers, food producers and the like have a huge demand for new employees. Thompson Coburn client Eightfold.ai has teamed up with the Food Industry Association to bridge the two through an online platform, Talent Exchange. McKinsey & Co. has provided support for the Talent Exchange. The platform uses Eightfold’s artificial intelligence algorithms to rapidly match employees with available opportunities.
Talent Exchange provides an accessible platform for industries diminished by COVID-19, organizations with increased demand for employees and individuals impacted by the outbreak to post and find jobs based on their skills and immediate needs.
Eightfold’s CEO Ashutosh Garg called Talent Exchange “an incredible way to help the community.”
Los Angeles Real Estate partner Jason Grinnell has worked with the rapidly-growing Eightfold.ai in office leasing matters in Silicon Valley. Jason learned about the Talent Exchange from Eightfold’s GC, Dr. Roy Wang, during Jason’s regular “Coronavirus Check In” calls with his clients.
