Jason Posel, Founder and CEO of GreenLight, was recently interviewed on The Future of Work Exchange by Christopher J. Dwyer. Jason shares his industry-veteran experience and insights in this discussion about the Future of Work.
The conversation was sparked by the growing trend of professionals seeking flexible career options and the resulting trend of businesses navigating the critical components of having an extended workforce.
On this transformation, Jason states: “I think one of the biggest changes is the worker’s mindset. They want to be independent. In most cases, that’s not possible; labor laws make things complicated and there simply isn’t the infrastructure to make operating as an independent contractor easy. No one who decides to take control of their own careers wants to have to deal with taxes, benefits, invoicing, timekeeping, insurance, etc. That’s why we are focused on fixing this infrastructure gap: by connecting onboarding and risk management with the tools and benefits that people need to be independent.”
He also predicts that in the next half of 2022: “Lots of niche talent marketplaces that focus on one single job function will be born. Those who land big clients that care about risk will need to use platforms like GreenLight to grow. We’ve met platforms that believe they don’t need to care about everything that happens after the job match-makings they facilitate, but come back after a few months to us when they are ready to scale.”
