I will always appreciate the love received by my new favorite client – NGHS. Good times, indeed.
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.
I had a good time presenting “Job Hunting is a Team Sport” last night at Roswell United Methodist Church in Atlanta. They have a VERY robust career ministry and I would encourage every job seeker to check them out. Volunteers are also welcome. By the way, VERY grateful for the kind words left in the comments on the post below. Thank you one and all. The check is in the mail. 😉
