The times today are truly tough. The pandemic changed the way we live our lives, revolutionized the workplace, and made us even more dependent on remote services. With that in mind, it’s not difficult to connect the dots between COVID and the rise of cyber fraud, which is noticed in all of the industries.
The pandemic impacted freelancers as well. According to a recent study, 4 out of 5 freelancers have experienced a dip in their freelance income due to COVID-19, while 37 % are considering trading their freelancing careers for full-time jobs. Additionally, there has been an increase in payment delays and a drop in new freelancing assignments as companies worldwide struggle to hold on.
Problems that existed in the freelance industry prior to the pandemic are now even greater. With the prevalence of fraud being as high as it is, it’s becoming more and more difficult for both the freelancers and their customers to trust each other.
JobHireHub, whose mission is to easily connect businesses with great talent, created a remote work platform to revitalize the freelance industry by working with both businesses looking to hire and freelancers hunting for their next assignment. To successfully bridge the gap between the two, JobHireHub needed a reliable identity verification solution.
That’s where iDenfy, a company providing AI-powered ID verification, comes into place. As companies worldwide have already put their trust in iDenfy, JobHireHub made a decision to seek out a partnership. iDenfy was glad to accept and the freelance industry platform will now have both a seamless and user-friendly verification method as well as a safeguard against bad actors.
“JobHireHub is a project planning and hiring platform for product owners. We help find the best freelance talent for your next project. We pride ourselves in creating a user-friendly, customer-first experience and we select partners who help us achieve our vision of creating the ultimate project planning and hiring platform.” said Kenley Lamaute, Founder of JobHireHub.
“It seems only natural that JobHireHub chose us as their partners and we are very glad to welcome them aboard. Both it and iDenfy share a vision of user-friendly customer-first experience. I can predict a solid, long-term partnership,” said Domantas Ciulde, CEO of iDenfy.
