“Annual Impact Report” Shows Vitality Of The Amazing Elance Community.e_darrellj | May 22, 2013
We want everyone to know about the incredible group of people who make up the Elance community, and how we are working together to create economic opportunities for millions of businesses and freelance professionals through online work. This includes spelling out our vision and mission for Elance, as well as sharing real-life stories that celebrate the ingenuity, talent and diversity of Elancers around the globe.
With this in mind we created our first-ever Annual Impact Report. Naturally, many members of our community were a huge part of this endeavor, and we thank everyone who took the time to participate. We asked Fabio, our CEO, to make a quick video introducing the report.
The Annual Impact Report defines what it means to Work Differently.
The report brings to life many dimensions of online work: From a glimpse into the spirit, passion and lives of individual Elancers to a broader look at the impact of our entire community. To get the most value from our Annual Impact Report, we worked with an independent third-party organization based in New York, Imperative, and utilized statistical and measurement frameworks such as the PERMA methodology. This approach has allowed us to contextualize and benchmark the results of the study, and has helped us set measurable goals for improvement over the next year.
In other words, our Annual Impact Report is an expression of how we all Work Differently and an exploration into ways we can make online work better. Thanks for being a part of the story, and pass this report on to others to share the virtues of our community and the tremendous value of online work. Watch Fabio’s video introduction
