Glasgow Software Firm to Help Youth Employment Accelerator
Sofware solutions businesses Caseblocks is helping to transform South African Harambee Youth Employment Accelerator with its adaptive case management platform.
Caseblocks, a leading global provider of cloud-based adaptive case management solutions, is rolling out its adaptive case management platform to support non-profit organisation Harambee, a youth employment accelerator, in building a work-seeker support system and technology platform.
Harambee is working collaboratively with a number of social and technology partners, including Caseblocks, to build a work-seeker support system and technology platform. The software firm’s adaptive case management system will enable Harambee to scale to meet greater demands at a national level, and in doing so will help hundreds of thousands of young workers currently locked out of employment in South Africa.
Continual Data Processing Will Improve Matching Algorithms
The platform will support and manage the complex processes involved in candidate recruitment, search, training, selection and job placement. New candidates are found across South Africa and are welcomed on to the platform by first building a personal profile, the cornerstone for future job matching algorithms.
Candidates are then matched to job opportunities and can be taken through training interventions required for specific roles. Candidates passing the interventions are offered interviews with the employer. Candidates not selected for employment are brought back into the available pool to be matched against more suitable opportunities.
Engagement with users is maintained beyond job placements, so if former candidates are looking for work again, they can make themselves available for future matching. The data is processed to continually improve and adapt the matching algorithms. The full solution is hosted on the Google Cloud Platform.
Software Will Help Harambee to Scale
CTO & Cofounder of Caseblocks, Ijonas Kisselbach, said: “Harambee is an incredibly exciting organisation and it’s rewarding to be involved in a project critical to the future of South Africa. This important project demonstrates how machine learning and case management can come together to solve complex, enterprise process challenges.”
Evan Jones, CIO, Harambee, said: “Caseblocks was chosen to deliver the case management platform to 400 users as well as our consortium partners IQ Business and Dotmodus, who deliver systems integration and machine learning (ML) algorithms.
“We’re delighted to have a system that meets the needs of our young people as well as the companies that are employing them. As we place more people into employment, the system will scale and adapt to better identify opportunities for placing more young people into work.
“We’re driven by creating a better outcome for young people here in South Africa, and we’ve chosen our technology partners with care. Caseblocks allows the system to learn from each and every case on the platform and the algorithm is based on “rules to include, not exclude””.
