We are happy to present our newest corporate member: Upwork Inc.
Upwork is the leading online talent solution transforming professional staffing by empowering businesses with flexible access to quality talent, on demand. Matt Rossi, who we spoke to from Upwork, described Upwork as; "...a dating service for freelancers and designers".
Through Upwork´s matching technology and services, companies have access to a global pool of proven professionals so they can scale their team dynamically to meet business needs. The community of independent professionals working via Upwork spans many categories including software development, creative & design, finance & accounting, consulting, operations & customer support - 0ver 8000 skills are represented.
Unlike other businesses that have struggled during the Pandemic, Upwork has seen increased traffic and higher demand for their services. As a result of many businesses having to let go of employees, demand for freelancers has risen among employers. Since the near future still is unpredictable, some businesses find it safer to hire freelancers rather than full-time employees.
There has also been an increase in so-called part-time freelancers using Upwork. Since many of us work from home this year, some have found new ways of maximizing their work time. Writing a few articles per week after traditional work hours is just one of many ways to make some more money as someone trying out the services.
Both business and anyone who has marketable skills can benefit from using Upwork.
