Helping the next generation find meaningful work, our Startup of the Week for this week is Genvalues!
Founded in 2019, Genvalues is on a mission to help Millennial and GenZ engineering talent connect with teams that share the same values. The new generation dominates the world and has a wider lens about what a job is and a company’s responsibility. 80% consider company sustainability and workplace values of utmost importance when choosing where to work.
Through the Genvalues platform, engineers can select values that matter most to them. These values can include any number of things; from wanting to join a team that fosters psychological safety where a speak-up culture is practiced to one that promotes a growth mindset or perhaps contributes to an SDG. After selecting, users are matched to engineering teams with the same values and are currently hiring.
Genvalues have designed unique tools and over 400 highly valuable questionaries developed by organizational psychologists. On the platform, tech and impact companies get support to publish powerful, authentic content and job opportunities. It’s designed to attract those who work for money but perform their best for values and purpose.
Genvalues is based in Stockholm, also known as the capital of impact, and was founded by Carwan Rasoal. He was deeply frustrated by the current platforms that lacked the most crucial information Millennial and GenZ job seekers use – failing to include anything about the company’s true impact or the team’s values. Seeing that these essential qualities were missing from such platforms, Carwan created Genvalues, the values-first team and job-searching platform for engineers.
