MINNEAPOLIS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Field Nation, a leading work platform connecting organizations with independent contractors to get work done, today announced its inclusion in the emerging Freelancer Management System (FMS) category. The category is identified in a recent research report published by Staffing Industry Analysts.
In the report, research analyst David Francis identifies the new FMS category as one that enables enterprises to self-manage their engagements with independent workers and freelancers. The report separates traditional web-based staffing platforms used by small and medium-sized businesses from the new FMS platform, which is more robust and designed to serve as a talent management system for large organizations. The FMS helps organizations find talent and provides the needed tools to manage each engagement.
As one of the first companies devoted to connecting businesses with technology professionals using a web platform, FieldNation.com leads in the FMS category. Using FieldNation.com organizations can find, manage and pay contractors for any specific job, and workers can market their skills, bid and manage projects and create long-term relationships to grow their business.
“Field Nation has helped businesses and independent contractors connect since 2008,” said Mynul Khan, CEO of Field Nation. “Our intuitive, user-friendly platform, and the tools that live within it, are perfectly designed to empower users – creating relationships, managing workflow and cost-effectively helping organizations get work done.
“The labor market is shifting dramatically,” added Khan. “By 2020 40% of workers will be independent contractors. A recent Field Nation study of independent workers found they are three times more engaged in their work than a W-2 employee, so we are pleased to be a go-to resource for this growing labor market.”
Field Nation has been named to the Inc. 500 list of Fastest Growing Companies in America in both 2013 and 2014. The company recently surpassed one million completed work orders. Field Nation is headquartered in Minneapolis and has offices in Atlanta and Bangladesh.
