In our year-end note, we share three quick takeaways to inform your (freelance) talent strategy in 2024.


Curated talent across key skill areas is driving faster freelance talent adoption

Organisations are seeking curated, verified independent talent and bespoke teams that can be onboarded with a short turnaround time to meet specific business challenges. This shift is driven by the need for business agility, requirement for emerging and niche skills, and access to the right talent at the right cost.

Over the past year, we have curated ready-to-onboard talent pools across diverse skill sets across marketing & branding, data science & analytics, digital transformation projects and more.

Fee benchmarking and project pricing are critical in securing the right talent at the right cost

While the reasons that drive companies to explore freelance talent as an additional talent channel are well documented, hiring managers work with specific budgets in mind, and hence it is important to match them to the right talent. Understanding industry trends for in-demand skills and freelancer fee benchmarks are important in arriving at a budget during the requirement stage.

FeeBee, our proprietary fee benchmarking and project pricing tool, uses unique pricing data with over 600,000+ data points, and helps inform your budgeting process. For example, our data shows that the quality of freelance experience has a huge impact on fees – up to 3x differential from median fees for high skilled talent.
