In response to the impacts of COVID-19 on the U.S. labor force, Business Talent Group (BTG) is entering into an exclusive collaboration in the on-demand talent industry with Upwork to offer clients access to the full range of specialized skills and expertise available across both companies’ networks. The collaboration will also ensure that our growing ranks of independent talent have access to a wider set of clients to protect their income and livelihood during uncertain times.
According to Upwork’s annual Future Workforce Report, only 30% of hiring managers feel their teams have the skills needed to support business needs in the next 3–5 years. The collaboration between BTG and Upwork, “ushers in a new era of flexibility at a time when everyone needs it. Unlocking the power of on-demand talent at all levels of the business hierarchy will help our clients close the gap between the jobs that need to be done, and the talent to get the work done,” said Hayden Brown, CEO of Upwork.
