When we founded Gloat, we had a simple but lofty vision – to bring democratized career development to every individual, regardless of their background, and startup agility to every enterprise, regardless of its size.
We knew to achieve that vision we couldn’t just add on a feature or module onto an existing technology. We needed to inspire organizations to fundamentally rethink the way they manage their people and the way they approach the very concept of work. The result? An entirely new technology category known as the Talent Marketplace – an AI-powered platform that dynamically connects talent and individuals’ unique aspirations with business needs, in the form of projects, full-time roles, mentorships, and other opportunities that exist within the company.
From the moment we implemented our first talent marketplace, and with the help of incredible partners like Unilever, Schneider Electric, Standard Chartered Bank, Seagate, Nestlé, HSBC, MetLife, Mastercard and many of the world’s leading enterprises that we are proud to call our customers, it didn’t take long for us to prove the power of this new paradigm. We were helping people achieve their true potential, and businesses to accelerate to meet the demands of the modern market.
Our Talent Marketplace has enabled our customers to assemble teams to launch products at record speeds, to redeploy thousands of employees based on real-time market demand, save millions of dollars in external contingent labor costs, move the needle on D&I, and to help retain and inspire amazing talent by providing them with a chance to find their second act right within the company’s walls.
We’ve known for a long time that the Talent Marketplace was more than just another technology platform. It was a redefinition of how we managed the modern enterprise, the way we saw talent within the organization, and the way we approached work itself.
