WorkGenius Donates 11,618 Hours of Work to Ensure Election Integrity
Digital Workforce will scan internet for false or misleading information aimed at influencing US midterm elections
NEW YORK, October 26, 2018 (Newswire.com) - Today, WorkGenius announced that the company will donate more than 11,000 hours from its digital workforce to locate and report fake news postings and other misinformation across the web that seeks to influence the upcoming 2018 midterm elections.
In addition to the company’s donation, WorkGenius will also match additional hours purchased by partners and other organizations committed to ensuring fair and democratic elections.
“Bias is as inefficient and misplaced in elections as it is in the business world or anywhere else. We’re at the forefront of providing income opportunities to talented individuals regardless of their location, racial or ethnic background, gender, social status, family obligations or formal education,” says Marlon Litz-Rosenzweig, co-founder and CEO of WorkGenius. “Putting our pool of over 300,000 WorkGeniuses to good use was a no-brainer, especially since we don’t believe companies such as Facebook, Twitter, Reddit, and others should be left alone in their efforts to provide accurate information. Society needs to get involved and our Digital Workforce can make a real difference here.”.Bias is as inefficient and misplaced in elections as it is in the business world or anywhere else.

WorkGenius is largely comprised of millennial workers and 87% of them reported using one or more social media sites at least once per day. The company estimates that 3,000 to 4,000 individuals will be scanning various social media sites and message boards for content relevant to the elections that appears to be false. The WorkGenius AI-enabled freelancer platform will automatically divide the budget of hours into smaller work packages and assign those to members of the company's Digital Workforce.
WorkGenius intends to report the results of their efforts after November 6 or as soon as the budget for the project has been spent.
