DETROIT—Officials with the Michigan Works Southeast announced they had selected Ann Arbor-based Amesite Inc. (NASDAQ: AMST), an artificial intelligence software company, to provide workforce training to its workers.
Michigan Works Southeast is part of a 16-agency system that offers training, education, business development and access to employment opportunities. Michigan Works Southeast serves nearly 18,000 community members in Hillsdale, Jackson, Lenawee, Livingston, and Washtenaw Counties through one-on-one career guidance, upskilling job seekers for current labor trends and much more.
“Workforce upskilling and reskilling is needed more urgently now than ever, given the evolution of the work world,” said Michigan Works Southeast Executive Director Shamar Herron. “We chose Amesite to support our own workforce in their professional development journey because we believe in the power of their platform to support the engagement, and ultimately the success of our teams. “We are excited for this partnership and believe wholeheartedly that a SaaS company with industry-leading technology such as Amesite is the best fit that ties into our organization’s value of lifelong learning, leading to the development of a sustainable workforce.”
Added Ann Marie Sastry, founder and CEO of Amesite: “According to Gallup’s 2021 State of the Global Workforce report, 85% of employees are not engaged in the workplace. In partnership with Michigan Works Southeast, we are well positioned to change that. Moreover, this contract will give us an opportunity to showcase our world-class on-line learning platform to the other 15 Michigan Works agencies, which train thousands of workers each year. I am also excited that we were chosen over competitors offering similar solutions as it speaks to the quality and breath of our technology.”
