BATON ROUGE, La. — BoomNation reports impressive growth in 2022 and predicts continued success in balancing the supply and demand for skilled workers in the new year. BoomNation is a skilled-community platform connecting tradespeople with employers who are looking for a better way to engage with and hire qualified workers. The platform also equips skilled workers with the tools they need to showcase their skills and credentials and find better work faster.

BoomNation began the year building its jobs database and by the end of 2022, BoomNation reported that almost 10,000 job applications were processed through the app, a one-year increase of more than 8,000%. 2022 also brought tens of thousands of skilled workers to the community – a cumulative year-over-year increase of more than 457% and 350% growth quarter-over-quarter.

“Through the lens of the worker journey, BoomNation is building a platform to connect and engage the skilled community,” said Brent Flavin, co-founder and co-CEO of BoomNation. “With tens of thousands of skilled workers using the platform and hundreds of jobs available each day, BoomNation is quickly becoming the go-to place for workers to build community and find better work faster than ever before.”

Across social channels, BoomNation is described as “LinkedIn for Blue Collar” and the “Blue Collar Twitter,” but according to Flavin, a more accurate description is one recently posed by a skilled worker in BoomNation’s community feed that calls the platform, “The first social media site I’ve actually liked and felt like I belonged.”

BoomNation is also excited to announce it will soon be releasing additional innovations to further improve the worker journey. Look for this new, engaging technology to roll out within the next couple of months.
