Nominated for the 2012 Small Business Influencer Awards in:

oDesk is the world’s largest and fastest-growing online workplace, freeing businesses and contractors to work together without geographic limits. We enable businesses to hire, manage and pay a flexible online workforce, and contractors to work whenever, wherever and however they want.

Finding the right talent is crucial, but painful, time-consuming and competitive. For small businesses in particular, attracting, hiring and retaining star employees is often cost-prohibitive. The war for talent is real, it is pervasive, and it is dire.

But with oDesk, businesses can access a global, specialized, on-demand “super workforce” in just a few clicks. This is especially crucial for small businesses, which typically do not have the resources to compete against much larger companies in the war for talent. Online work provides on-demand access to the talent they need, when they need it, leveling the competitive playing field and allowing them to punch above their weight.

oDesk takes the pain out of hiring, managing, and paying skilled professionals from around the world, allowing startups to scale their workforce on demand. oDesk also enables entrepreneurs to manage their online team members as if they were in the same office, and to pay them seamlessly across even international borders. Close to 90% of oDesk clients own their own business, and more than 50% characterize themselves as startups.
