To build the most talent-centric company for freelancer to find opportunity and thrive - regardless of how, when and where they work.
Big disruptions are shaping the future of work. The seeds of change were laid in 2020, when we experienced first-hand that workforce productivity, happiness and collaboration can actually improve if we let go of the dogma of the central office. People are evaluating work opportunities beyond the ambit of material benefits, while asking 3 basic questions before they apply- How, When and Where they would work. The concept of Flexible Working is emerging as a desired answer to these questions.
As huge companies are embracing this concept, we see a turning point for wide-scale adoption of flexible work schedules, objective-based performance, and telecommuting. Big players like Microsoft and Dell are following suit through initiatives like hybrid work and Connected Workplace program, to witness huge boosts in productivity and employee job satisfaction. Due to their skill focused services, gig workers are already being pursued by firms like American Express, Nintendo, Bloomberg, and Time Warner Cable, to meet niche requirements across various categories, ranging from proofreading to game testing. Technology is at the core of enabling this new reality, having reached a stage of maturity where collaboration across geographical and cultural distances can easily be bridged.
At OpenTalent, we believe that it is time to move beyond fixed terms of employment and strict in-office engagement. It’s time to migrate towards a new reality for work; one that facilitates team growth not limited by geographical boundaries and fosters fruitful long-term collaborations between organisations and on-demand professionals. Quality flexible working can help organisations attract talent, improve employee job satisfaction and loyalty, reduce absenteeism, and improve well-being - all while making businesses more responsive to change.
OpenTalent operates by the following guiding Core Values:
