SmartWorker : Social Impact Through Data

Unemployment among youth, women and physically challenged has a detrimental effect on young people that can continue into later life by impacting on future earnings, physical and mental health and social isolation. This can also lead to greater pressure on public services.

Most of the impact investment projects are focused on bottom of the pyramid sectors such as housing, water, healthcare, education, micro financing, agriculture & energy. We believe job creation in villages also holds a significant opportunity to bring positive social impact.

Recent population statistics indicate that the vast majority of Indians live in villages, with 80% of India’s 1.25 billion population lives in villages and small towns. India has more than 50% of its population below the age of 25 and more than 65% below the age of 35.

There is a need to provide meaningful experiential and practice based job opportunities for young people from less privileged communities. Digital Job creation also holds a significant opportunity to bring positive social impact. There is an opportunity to leverage digital economy on a permanent basis to create employment, improve the confidence & skills of young people from low-income areas.

We invented a marketing data software called SmartWorker , which helps businesses to win new deals, identify sales leads, grow pipeline, and maintain CRM data accuracy. Businesses subscribe to our data platform for a fee. Our data-as- a- service cloud is automating marketing campaign data activities using Big Data, Machine Learning & Crowd computing.

Through SmartWorker, we promote Impact Sourcing that benefits disadvantaged people in areas of extreme under-employment. We hire unemployed youth, women & physically challenged from low income and less privileged communities. We train them to perform simple digital data tasks such as audience research, email campaigns, surveys, opt-in permission checks, contacts discovery, data correction, buyers behaviour analysis, data sorting and formatting, and connect them to life changing work income via our online software.

This program can result in employment creation for hundreds of women, youth and physically challenged in low-income areas, impacting thousands of families across Asia.

We have created over 100 jobs in villages and distributed over $400k in wages. We opened our first office in an Indian village and employed 35 full time workers. Many of the workers have been able to make career progression to larger companies. Through SmartWorker employment, many workers have been able to support their families & marriages. The learning curve for employees includes exposure to international work culture, computer and Internet learning. We have done this by focusing on the Girl effect. We have specifically sought to empower young women with no formal work experience. Our key success is winning global customers, generating revenue and becoming self-sustainable.
