Moonlighting, a mobile on-demand hiring platform and Kelly Services, a global leader in providing workforce solutions, today announced a new strategic partnership. The collaboration provides Kelly access to independent talent communities by leveraging Moonlighting’s new Blockchain Profile Management System, due to launch in August 2019.
In April 2019, Moonlighting announced its investment from FinLab EOS VC Fund, a venture capital fund backed by FinLab AG and Block.one, one of the largest companies in blockchain and the publisher of the blockchain protocol EOSIO. Moonlighting’s Blockchain Profile Management Solution will run on the EOSIO protocol and allow job seekers to create trusted work profiles and transport them to other freelance and gig marketplaces.
“This strategic partnership, initiated through the Kelly Innovation Fund, supports the application of blockchain in human capital environments. Mobile technology, self-service, and the platform economy are all priorities for the modern workforce, and with data privacy emerging with an ever-increasing focus, we expect blockchain technology to offer even greater opportunities for a more efficient and secure process in the upcoming years.”
– John Healy, Vice President and Managing Director of Kelly’s Office of the Future of Work
Along with Block.one’s EOS VC Fund, Kelly Services joins an impressive group of partners including three of the largest news media companies in the US (Gannett, McClatchy, and Tribune). Moonlighting’s hiring solutions can be found in over 150 news media sites including the Chicago Tribune, LA Times, the Miami Herald, New York Daily News, and USA TODAY.
“Block.one’s EOS VC division continues to support endeavors that bring real-world solutions to life for blockchain. We’re excited to see the EOSIO protocol at work and in action for something meaningful like helping people find work.”
– Paul Grotowski, COO of EOS VC
