Reejig Receives Investment to Accelerate Workforce Intelligence

Enterprise-grade workforce intelligence platform Reejig announced an investment from Salesforce Ventures that will help it to accelerate the growth of its global team and further develop its workforce intelligence technology to drive the mission for “Zero Wasted Potential” in people, businesses and society.

Since launching in 2019, Reejig has raised more than $38 million in funding including infusions from Skip Capital, headed by Atlassian co-founder Scott Farquhar, Airtree Ventures, Culture Amp’s Didier Elzinga, and now Salesforce Ventures.

Reejig’s co-founder and CEO Siobhan Savage said, “We’re helping organizations optimize their workforces and unlock their people’s potential. This starts with having an unbiased view of who your people are, what skills they have, and how busy they are. Our workforce intelligence platform provides organizations with a central nervous system for all their talent decisions, giving them the tools to get the right skills in the right place at the right time – ensuring everyone has access to a meaningful career.”

In recent years, circumstances like the global pandemic, remote work and emerging technologies have disrupted the workplace. In response to market uncertainty, many companies have resorted to mass layoffs.

Crunchbase reports that more than 40,000 workers in the U.S. tech sector have been laid off in the year to August 2022. At the same time, 87 percent of executives are experiencing skills gaps and are struggling to reskill and upskill their workforce to meet business demands, according to McKinsey research.

“Addressing the huge skills gap and shortage of training opportunities for working is more important than ever,” said Mike Ferrari, managing director, Salesforce Ventures APAC. “We look forward to working alongside the Reejig team as they continue to grow.”

Pursuing its commitment to creating a world of Zero Wasted Potential, Reejig launched the Reejig Impact Fund to help underrepresented communities unlock career opportunities, growth and potential. The Reejig Impact Fund will donate Reejig’s workforce intelligence technology to veteran, skilled refugee and other underrepresented communities, to reskill, build new capabilities and remove barriers to career opportunities for all.

“We’re not just building technology, we’re also creating recurring impact and change for the better. The Reejig Impact Fund is our way of giving back to society by removing barriers to career opportunities for all,” Savage said. “When people have fair and equitable access to personally meaningful work — no matter their background – all of society can reap the benefits.”
