In today’s episode of Category Visionaries, we speak with Joseph Fung, CEO of Uvaro, a career success platform that’s raised over $15million in funding, about why reframing a host of familiar categories like recruitment and training support leads to a whole new approach to business that puts people first. Career success means taking a human-oriented approach to professional development, helping people find the positions that really work for them, and helping them really deliver on what their host companies need. It’s a whole new perspective on the oldest challenge in business.

We also spoke about why it just makes sense to work with a partner when it comes to professional development, the increasing importance of skills suitability in an economy defined by rapid career transitions, and how the real stories of Uvaro’s members are the best possible promotion for a company that builds everything on trust. By fostering a sense of genuine community and facilitating organic interactions, Uvaro is rapidly changing the way we will all soon approach the prospects of work.

  • Why we should all invest in a career development partner with the skills and insight to get us where we need to be
