More about GAGE

GAGE is a revolutionary recognition system built to measure the overall employability of a person within the workforce. The heart of GAGE is the “GAGE Score”, the world's first universal employment score which can be taken from job to job. GAGE bridges the gap between employees and employers across all jobs and industries, by providing the tools that employees need to feel that their work matters, while boosting employee retention and engagement for employers.

The Problem

The workforce is broken. With the generational shift in today’s workforce, it’s apparent that the way people have been managed in the past isn’t working anymore. People classified as Generation Z (Gen Z) are more likely to leave a job where they don’t feel fulfilled, compared to prior generations. With employee engagement and retention rates at an all time low and how Millennials and Gen Z are estimated to make up 64% of the labor force in 2025 (Pew Research Center) - there is an apparent need for change.
Employees need to feel that their work matters, they are no longer driven solely by money. They are no longer interested in simply clocking in and clocking out without purpose. They want meaningful work, recognition, and a sense of ownership over what they contribute to their workplace.

The Solution - Our Take

GAGE was built out of a need to bridge the gap between employers and employees everywhere. We need a tool that will meet the needs of both parties in such a way that accountability, transparency and communication become the standard in the workforce. A culture where employees can be recognized for their work, receive constant feedback, and growth opportunities. A culture where employers can hire the best people with confidence, and be provided the tools they need to develop and retain their team.
GAGE creates this culture. With GAGE, all work is seen and every job has meaning. It’s a lens through which good work gets long-term visibility, and where facilitating feedback for growth is easier than ever before.

How we calculate the GAGE Score

GAGE is built to be flexible across a variety of roles and industries. We designed the score to recognize good work while providing feedback on areas of growth. We identified 3 primary categories that create the score. These categories serve as a basis for reflecting an individual’s employability over time:

Category 1: Job History
We measure the health of tenure with prior jobs. The longer you stay with a job, the better your score.
Category 2: Job Performance

We measure soft skills that are crucial to be successful in any role: communication, professionalism, adaptability, integrity, compatibility, passion & drive, responsibility, team player, resourcefulness, and leadership. We measure performance through two key GAGE features:

Category 3: Job Transition
We hold that a significant part of professional growth is leaving a job well. We recognize that job transitions are a regular part of life and professional growth, so we included a way to submit a two-week notice through the GAGE app. This category measures the rate of job exits compared to two weeks notice submissions.

Together, we are building a better workforce
