Get to know Allwork
Our mission has always been to build the future of flexible work.
The number of freelancers in the workforce has increased dramatically over the past few years…and shows no signs of slowing down. According to recent labor statistics, 43% of the US workforce, or 73.3 million people, are now participating in freelancer, gig, or consulting work. And by 2028, the latest data suggests there will be over 90 million US freelancers. The way we work has shifted and freelancers can be found in just about every company across a variety of departments and roles.
Our goal is to quickly help companies adapt to this new workforce, which means helping them organize work more flexibly and connect with all types of freelancers across their entire organization. We’re here to reduce the friction that exists today in how freelancers and companies work together.
What Companies Need
We hear from companies every day that they are looking for a better way to manage and pay this growing number of freelancers. They want to take advantage of this opportunity to leverage a flexible work model, but they don’t have the technology to do it.
Before AllWork, companies ended up with a lot of manual work since their HCM systems like Workday and Oracle, or Payroll and PEO providers like ADP, Paychex, or Tri-net are just not designed for efficient or compliant freelancer management and payment.
Companies need one system for all of their freelancers. They want one centralized platform and system of record where they can:
Imagine if You Will…
Imagine a medium-sized tech company that has 200 employees and 50 freelancers. For the 200 permanent employees, they use a traditional PEO who does their payroll and healthcare benefits for them.
But of the 50 freelancers, 25 are paid hourly doing a variety of functions including: content management, customer service, quality assurance, and other operational support functions. To manage these workers, they need to onboard them correctly, use time and attendance software to accurately track their hours, and pay them as W-2 workers across 12 different states while keeping compliant with all of the local labor laws.
The other 25 freelancers are project-based workers and consultants who are doing UX design, programming, outbound sales, and marketing consulting. For these workers, they need to have them sign consulting and confidentiality agreements, create a project for each one, manage the payments based on project milestones, and pay them as 1099 workers in three states while keeping compliant with a whole different set of local labor laws.
Does that sound just a little too complicated to manage yourself with email, spreadsheets and word documents?
That’s the pain that AllWork was built to tackle. Our total workforce platform was designed to help eliminate the hassle of onboarding, managing, and paying your flexible workers.
