Matt Cooper, a Vice President at oDesk (the world’s largest online workplace), will talk about the rise of online work. Businesses and independent professionals are increasingly working together via the Internet. The limitations of traditional, Industrial Age work models no longer make sense. Today, the Internet and online work help break free of these limitations; bringing the work to the workers, rather than the workers to work. Businesses are hiring online contract workers for any work that can be done on a computer — from every tech skill imaginable to project management, customer support, marketing, design and legal services. Even bioinformatics and theoretical physicists. Flexible access to talent is especially powerful for small businesses with limited resources or those seeking a specific skill that’s difficult to find. And for workers, this is an era in which we are now empowered to work when we want, where we want, and on the work of our choosing with clients all over the world.
- oDesk predicts that 1 in 3 workers will be hired to work online by 2020.
- The online work market is expected to reach $1 billion this year.
- Online work is helping businesses get more work done, and in doing so providing more employment opportunities. Of those who hired online workers, if they hadn’t hired an online worker only 17% would have hired on-premise. Most would have worked longer themselves, delayed or cancelled the project entirely.
- The average worker on oDesk increases their rate approximately 190% in three years.
Listen to how you manage workers online or decide to become an online worker yourself!
