“It’s truly an honor to be on this list of innovators, especially at this time when the freelance and independent contractor workforce continues to be such a prominent and important part of the overall labor economy,” said Jeffrey Leventhal, CEO of Work Market. “With more than 53 million freelance workers in the the US workforce, we are continuing to see a tangible need among businesses of all sizes, but particularly the enterprise, for the tools and processes required to manage the distinct needs of the freelance workstream. Work Market’s FMS was built to help companies optimize every stage of the freelance workforce management process, and we’re glad to offer a much-needed solution to our clients and partners at this time. Personally, I’m humbled to be recognized among such a top group of industry powerhouses.”
Work Market, founded in 2010 by Jeffrey Leventhal and Jeffrey Wald, has filled millions of work assignments to date across 400 clients, 100 of which exceed a billion in annual revenue, making us the largest enterprise freelance platform in the world.
“Jeff Leventhal is truly a visionary of the freelance economy,” said Tig Gilliam, Work Market Board Member and Former CEO of Adecco Group NA. “He and the Work Market team have built the marketing-leading platform and valuable tools that companies need to identify, manage and grow their freelance labor forces. For many companies, freelancers and independent contractors bring the skills, expertise and capacity they need to succeed, however they have not had the tools to manage the work or the resources. Work Market solves this problem - allowing companies and their contractors to collaborate seamlessly and transact efficiently. Jeff and the Work Market team have created a new technology category. I offer my congratulations to Jeff on this well-deserved recognition from SIA - the authority in this industry.”
