The last decade has seen an explosion of remote and freelance work. In 2018, 35% of Americans (around 56.7 million people) completed some form of freelance work—an increase of 7% from 2013. By 2027, up to 50% of people may be working as a freelancer in some capacity.
The benefits of this trend for hiring companies—whether large or small; corporate, state-operated, or privately held—cannot be understated. A scalable workforce means reduced overhead, not to mention the ability to hire individuals with highly specialized skill sets for exactly the work needed, and no more. But connecting with interested, qualified freelancers presents a challenge.
