LinkedInTwitterFacebookGoogle+Share

WorkMarket is acquiring OnForce, according to multiple sources close to the on-demand IT talent platform companies. Some chatter speculates that Accenture is driving the WorkMarket-OnForce business combination. Accenture and Foundry Group invested $25 million into WorkMarket in April 2017. The Accenture and Foundry funding was an add-on to WorkMarket’s $20 million Series C round raised in 2015, The Wall Street Journal reported at the time. Workmarket and OnForce both run freelance IT management platforms, so this acquisition may be an attempt to corner that segment of the talent acquisition market.

LinkedInTwitterFacebookGoogle+Share

Werk, a job board startup for women with young children, has raised $2.85 million in seed funding, announced this week. Rethink Impact, a $112 million female-run venture fund, led the round, with female-focused investors Halogen Ventures and SoGal Ventures also participating. Werk’s core product is a job board, which has been active since February. Companies pay to post open positions, and job-seekers pay an annual fee of $48 to gain access to the marketplace. Each job must be flexible in one or more ways—fluid working hours, for example, or the ability to leave the office on short notice. It must also be eligible for promotion, in order to ensure that women are taking on roles that have advancement potential.
