How To Use Tech To Employ the Homeless

In this episode of “Its All Recruiting,” I have a great chat with Cody Merrill of SocialWyze. We discuss how to put the homeless to work and how Universal Basic Income could subsidize workers displaced by automation and other technological advances.

ABOUT MY GUEST

Cody is the founder of Socialwyze, a gig economy mobile platform that allows governments to pay homeless and other unemployed individuals to perform public benefit work. For each dollar contributed to wages, governments are able to 1) provide income to people who need it, 2) execute public benefit work initiatives on an industrial scale, 3) feed a digital sales funnel to social services, and 4) empower individuals to obtain private employment as quickly as possible. Before founding Socialwyze, Cody spent most of his career in medical software. He studied finance and economics at SMU and the London School of Economics. He is extremely passionate about extending the benefits of technology to all members of society. In an age where Bain and McKinsey are projecting 20-33% job displacement from automation by 2030, he is particularly focused on helping to scale a solution to systematically repurpose human capital into meaningful, socially impactful work.
