Cork County Council and start-up company Abodoo have launched a new initiative to identify existing employment skills and talent across Cork County and use this data to deliver further resources and create greater economic opportunities.
Abodoo’s mapping technology will provide an ongoing live anonymised data analysis of the skills existing in Cork County, for those currently residing, the diaspora wishing to return, individuals wishing to relocate and businesses wishing to set up.
The platform will also act as a means of trying to establish the extent of those remotely working at present and as way to highlight opportunities that this new way of flexible/smart working might present for towns and communities across Cork County. We are keen to map the broad spectrum of skills that exist in the county and use this evidence to inform future policy developments that will stimulate economic growth in the county and also to highlight the talent pool for foreign direct investment as well as expansion by indigenous Irish companies and sectors.
Members of the public are being asked to assist in the creation of the talent and remote working map by registering their skills set. For more information click the following www.abodoo.com/corkcounty or register by click the button below.
Information provided in the project will not include any personally identifiable material and will capture key data points for remote and office working.
