These days, the concept and implementation of social innovation have received extensive attention from many parties and have been applied to various fields. This paper presents the implementation of social innovation in empowering people who lost their jobs after the Covid-19 pandemic. The Department of Manpower and Transmigration of East Java Province (Disnakertrans Jatim), the implementing element of government affairs in manpower and transmigration, has carried out various efforts to solve this problem by organizing training activities. However, in practice, it is still difficult for the community and trained workers to find jobs that match their expertise fields. Based on the study and results of the Focus Group Discussion (FGD) conducted with Disnakertrans Jatim, it is concluded that several aspects are the cause of the above problems, including the lack of involvement of various parties in preparing the job seekers community, the lack of an integrated information system that could help bring together job seekers with companies that need workers, and the entrepreneurial potential of people seeking workers has not yet been developed. This paper discusses how social innovation can empower the community, especially workers, in increasing independence and entrepreneurial abilities post Covid-19 in East Java. Rumah Mandiri Sejahtera (Rumah Mandira or Mandira House), as a form of social innovation, was developed to become a center for community independence and entrepreneurship after the pandemic. In addition, a web-based integrated information system and social network for the Sahabat Mandira community were also developed as a means of interaction for community members, information dissemination, and training registration, as well as a forum to bring together job seekers and industrial partners as labor users and new entrepreneurs with business partners
