THE REASON WE EXSIST

Finding the right skills for the job is becoming managers’ biggest headache

The shortage of skills in the labour market along with the desire and push toward a hybrid workforce model is what got us here. The world is changing, and managers and companies have to change with it. The days when we could do everything in-house are long gone and teams are forced to outsource if they want to get everything done – we believe this can be done without all the headaches and frustrations.

THE PROBLEM

The driving factors behind our solution

Scarcity of skills

The demand for skills are at an all-time high, while the supply is declining. Making it hard to access certain skills and almost impossible to fill them all in-house.

The great shift

Many skilled professionals have realised that they can do their work from anywhere in the world, whether it is from bed or a beach, they are no longer inspired by office lunches.

Hybrid working

More and more companies are accepting the change and embracing the hybrid work model, now hiring across borders – making it even harder to access local talent.

THE RESULT

More and more teams
are outsourcing work

Outsourcing is nothing new, but the process is still immature and freelance marketplaces are flooded with scammers, fake reviews and a terrible lack of support – leaving many managers extremely frustrated.

We are on a mission to change that!
