Ep 22: Talent Marketplaces, The Three Trillion Dollar Future Of Work


In this interview Matt Alder speaks to Stephane Kasriel CEO of Upwork.

A recent report published by McKinsey indicates that the digital talent marketplaces driving the so called “gig economy” could play a significant role in increasing global GDP by $2.7 Trillion by 2025.

Upwork is currently the biggest talent marketplace place in the world and I was delighted to get the chance to speak to Stephane Kasriel their CEO for this week’s podcast.

The topics we discuss include:
•    The merger of Elance and oDesk that created Upwork
•    How a talent marketplace actually works
•    The huge diversity of skills represented on the platform
•    Remote working and dynamic corporate talent pooling
•    Solving the global digital skills crisis
•    What the future of work will look like

Stephane also talks about Upwork’s experience of having an employee base that is 70% freelance and distributed across the world
