CareerGig, a web-based technology platform that utilizes blockchain to provide freelancers with competitive jobs and benefits, and employers with state of the art verification services, will launch an initial set of offerings beginning June 15, 2020.
During a time when the already active “gig-economy” is on the upswing because of layoffs due to COVID-19, it has become evident that there is a pressing need for benefits that are not company- or employer-based.
CareerGig provides freelancers and contractors with insurance and financial benefits that rival or surpass those available through full-time traditional employment with companies, while connecting them to top companies around the United States. Unlike other platforms, CareerGig uses blockchain, artificial intelligence, and other technologies to verify and validate freelance employees so companies have the assurance they are hiring the best available talent.
The June 15 launch begins a set of benefit-offerings customized exclusively for freelancers and contractors including life insurance, health services accounts (HSA), and financial services benefits. On the employer side, HR professionals are able to access a streamlined and secure verification process allowing for multiple assessments and background checks, saving time and resources. All offerings are available through the company website – careergig.com
This initial launch will be followed shortly by the CareerGig marketplace with expanded benefits such as health, dental, and vision insurance specifically tailored for freelancers and contractors. The CareerGig marketplace has a midsummer anticipated launch date.
“We are thrilled to be able to offer such a valuable platform for both freelancers and employers during a time when both flexibility and stability are so important to the success of individuals and the companies that hire them,” said Greg Kihlström, CEO and Co-Founder of CareerGig. “What’s more, our core philosophy of trust and validation using the best available technologies means that our platform is built with our customer’s data privacy and best interests in mind from the start. We look forward to the launch of our platform and are eager to roll out the additional features we have in store.”Greg Kihlström
