In today's ever-evolving work landscape in how work is done or desired to be done, the Veryable Platform has emerged as a hub for hundreds of thousands of workers seeking flexibility, autonomy, and control over their schedules. With the gig economy booming and approximately 40% of the U.S. workforce participating in gig work, the industry leader Veryable has become an indispensable tool for both workers and manufacturers alike. Let's briefly explore several compelling reasons why this platform has garnered such widespread appeal.

Why Veryable?

So why do these gig workers, or "Operators" as we call them, flock to the Veryable Platform? The answer lies in the fundamental principles of flexibility and supplemental income. Veryable offers workers the freedom to craft their own schedules. These workers typically engage the Platform for 14-15 days per month and diversify their work across multiple businesses. So it's not the conventional 40-hour workweek they seek; it's again, the flexibility and supplemental income they want. Something that without Veryable, these workers wouldn't find anywhere else.

Addressing Business Needs

Veryable undoubtedly stands as a testament to the changing landscape of work. Contrary to some misconceptions that gig platforms could be cannibalizing traditional jobs as we know them, Veryable serves as an operational tool that addresses the evolving needs of businesses. Do some of your employees shy away from weekend shifts? What about those projects you've had to decline? Veryable tackles these challenges head-on by providing businesses with the ability to flexibly scale their workforce up or down.

Cost-Effective Solutions

One of the allures of Veryable for business leaders lies in its capacity to deliver immediate assistance without the exorbitant costs/long-term commitments associated with traditional staffing firms. While staffing firms may charge up to 75% of the worker's pay, Veryable offers a cost-effective alternative that enables businesses to optimize their operational efficiency without breaking the bank.

Unionization Concerns

But what about unions? This has been a huge topic during the Biden regime (i.e., "most pro-union president you've ever seen") and we know independent contractors cannot be unionized. Naturally, concerns have arisen about the impact of platforms like Veryable on unionization efforts. However, it's crucial to recognize that Veryable is not seeking to undermine unions but rather to provide a complementary model that empowers workers and businesses alike. Veryable isn't in the business of challenging union jobs; instead, it provides solutions that can enhance working conditions. For instance, concerns about forced overtime for union members? Problem solved with Veryable. Additionally, having an extra pair of hands during a shift can always be beneficial.

A Legal Perspective

As In-House Counsel for Veryable, I have had the opportunity to witness firsthand the transformative impact the Veryable Platform has had on the workers and the businesses. Despite attempts of some to categorize us as a traditional staffing firm -- that's simply not what's happening here. And trust me, we still get these staffing agreements that are met with a blood bath of redlines. To be clear - the Platform doesn't "assign" or "train" workers, it's simply a technology-enabled marketplace that connects independent contractors to businesses. Our terms of service reflect this commitment, while also ensuring that these workers have the freedom to pursue any other opportunity they so choose.

Conclusion: Shaping the Future of Work

In essence, Veryable represents a new way of thinking about work, where flexibility, autonomy, and empowerment take center stage. As we move forward, platforms like Veryable will continue to shape the future of work, driving innovation and empowering individuals to pursue their passions while meeting the demands of the modern workforce.
