Startup Monday is ABCey’s weekly post that features some of the best and brightest companies in the Bay Area. They are often companies that we have our eye on, or have worked with in the past & would like to share with friends and followers of ABCey Events! Today’s Startup Monday highlights Upwork!
Who doesn’t dream of working from home in their pj’s or from a coffee shop in Europe? Upwork is an awesome company that endorses and manages contractors and freelancers, just like ABCey Events! They are a worldwide freelancing website that allows businesses to search for and hire independent contractors and professionals. Essentially, Upwork is a job board where client’s post projects. Freelancers submit proposals and make bids to win these projects. After each project is completed, both the client and the freelancer leave reviews of each other – helping the best move to the top.
Companies can form the best teams possible regardless of location. Upwork’s slogan is “where the world goes to work!”
Another great feature of Upwork’s is that it enables companies to track their freelancer’s work hours to make sure the billing process is fair. We love that that this helps bring transparency and trust into remote working relationships!
ABCey also relies on freelancers and contractors for our events, and with this lean business model we are able to create dream team’s for each new event, and can also scale to any size- allowing us to compete with global firms with full time salaried staff”s!
