The why and the way in which we work has been changing over the past few years, but within the space of just 30 days everything we thought we knew became out-dated and in some instances, obsolete. Flexibility is now more valued than ever, workforces are being decentralised and there is a growing demand for freelance services that can plug the gap for fast, digitally-savvy, on-demand workers that can meet ever-changing needs.
