WorkN founders Jake Rohn and Steve Blakely launched WorkN in 2015 with a strong vision to power a fundamental change in the way work is organized, coupled with a passion for helping people find work. WorkN first entered the market as a “gig economy” platform, bringing online staffing to the Staffing Industry, with a focus on creating custom, white-labeled mobile “on-demand staffing” for fulfillment of short term, “gig” work, making it possible for staffing firms to curate their own human cloud of talent in anticipation of customer needs. As the emergence of Uber Works and other mobile platforms posed a credible threat to the Staffing Industry, WorkN helped position the industry with capabilities to maintain competitive advantage and to differentiate themselves with clients and candidates.
