Vancouver-based ZoomInfo announced Thursday that it partnered with a startup called LayOffers LLC that tracks layoffs. The companies aim to help workers find employment.
LayOffers, a North-Carolina-based company, was founded during the COVID-19 pandemic, by Jeffrey Jewett. The website, in its beta mode, allows recently-laid-off workers the ability to anonymously share information and insight on the layoff practices of their former employers, according to the news release.
ZoomInfo provided contact data for about 370,000 recruiters to LayOffers, which plans on helping 1 million displaced workers by connecting them with active employers and recruiters, according to a ZoomInfo news release.
“When Jeffrey approached me with LayOffers’ mission, I instantly recognized the opportunity to make a difference,” said ZoomInfo CEO Henry Schuck. “Capitalizing on ZoomInfo’s unique combination of data coverage and accuracy, we’ve connected LayOffers with hundreds of thousands of recruiters nationwide to provide jobseekers with as many open positions as possible.”
