The Why Behind ThinkWhy

People inspire us. ThinkWhy began with a mission to change lives by helping create value and meaning in the workplace. It's the driver behind everything we do.

The Beginning

To transform SaaS in the labor market, we imagined a platform where current, accurate compensation and labor market information were accessible, actionable and provided real answers for today's evolving workforce.

Our leaders, engineers and data scientists went to work to develop AI-driven solutions that deliver the answers recruiters, HR and talent acquisition professionals, and business leaders need to drive strategic growth decisions.

LaborIQ® by ThinkWhy eliminates the guesswork with unmatched visibility into talent costs and employment conditions across the U.S. through an intuitive talent ecosystem.

Our mission is to help companies win talent.
