by Kay Aloha Villamor in December 9th, 2022

eQ8, a Sydney, Australia-based end-to-end platform for Strategic Workforce Planning (SWP) and dynamic scenario modeling, announced that it secured $4 million in Series A funding from Australian-based OIF Ventures.

The investment will support eQ8's continued growth and product innovation as it furthers its mission to help organizations worldwide connect their people to purpose.

"Organizations can no longer assume that the right workforce will just materialize," said Alicia Roach, Co-Founder and Joint CEO. "eQ8 compares business demand versus workforce supply against external labor market and future of work data. This allows our customers to define where they need to go and select the actions required to get there."

"In a period of uncertainty, customer demand for our product has lifted as companies must avoid the short-sighted decisions made during the pandemic," says eQ8 Co-Founder Chris Hare. "Increased volatility has crystallized the need for SWP. Leaders must plan."

eQ8 provides key insights into the size and shape of the workforce needed (Amount), initiatives that will have the biggest impact/ROI (Action), and shared leadership clarity on future business requirements (Align).
