About - Mission

We are committed to promote opportunity equality across Asia and the rest of the world.

To disrupt the long, overdue traditional hiring processes and develop the world's most collaborative talent network - one that is without language barriers, aligns incentives, redistributes economic value and shares long-term interest with Talent and Organisations.
Works is committed to change the traditional talent market and connects the world's top 1% remote developers and designers with leading enterprises, redistributing value and long-term interest with users.

Why we started Works

The way we work and hire is long overdue.

It is still based on the rulebook on how we should work, written a century ago by Henry Ford. Work has changed profoundly, but we still work according to the same principles a hundred years ago. Our economies are no longer industrial, but mainly knowledge-based.

The old structure limits workers and creates inequality.

It restricts work opportunities to proximity of the common place. It creates disproportionate wealth for wealthy people who get to stay on top of the structure. Proximity and/or language proficiency becomes a deciding factor in the hiring process instead of talent and qualifications.

The way work should be

We believe that work needs to be reinvented to a model that rewards individuals solely based on their qualities, unprejudiced by the enterprises who hire them.
At Works, our talent network is built with the belief that everyone shall be treated fairly with equal opportunities and the best person gets the job.

Transparent fees

Fees should be transparent and high commission fees taken from the middleman should be made obsolete.

Incentives

Long-term benefits and incentives should go to the person who created the actual work value.

WORKS token

We look to enable this new model using blockchain technology and through the WORKS token.
Works, the world's leading blockchain-driven talent network where clients and remote tech talent can work together significantly more fairly, legitimately, and transparently.
