Blok is designed to replace the outdated hierarchical workforce model, leading the charge to a productive, modern, and agile workforce.
Blok establishes a new paradigm for gig economy companies to solicit contractors for their gigs. A Blok platform user, called a blokpreneur (portmanteau for blockchain and entrepreneur, albeit can possibly mean an individual blokpreneur’s local (block-sized) sphere of influence), can browse all of the offers provided by the companies, assign relevant offers to themselves, mark them as complete and get paid in BLK tokens.
Blok uses smart contracts to eliminate friction in terms of time, cost, quality, and transparency in matching workers and employers. By utilizing the Blok platform to eliminate friction in the gig economy, we will empower workers and make hiring freelancers easier for companies. Further, by improving need identification and matching processes Blok will provide significant advances in the gig economy space.
Freelancers believe a diversified portfolio of clients is more secure than one employer. The average freelancer has an average of 4.5 clients per month.(Upwork ) With a transparent and trustworthy connection process, freelancers will be able to apply for consistent gigs to meet their financial needs and the current needs of a company.
Generating a diverse portfolio is where automation, blockchain, and the gig economy link. By isolating and codifying a gig so that it can be outsourced to a worker, we are now automating the gig. Once the gig has been automated, gig workers are only used to supervise and carry out the gig. This leaves an AI system that allows gig workers, the blockchain, and technology to work together.
Blok benefits companies looking to distribute tasks on a decentralized platform reducing labor and capital costs, increasing the scale of production, and to reach large subject pools quickly. Firms and individuals can conduct business solely on Blok optimizing the services and products they provide.
Working nine to five for a single employer runs counter to the way a significant share of the workforce makes a living today. The strategy for millions of people is to compile various income streams and working independently rather than in structured payroll jobs. With the emergence of technology and workflow applications, escaping the cubicle is within reach for millions of workers. The common struggles are lack of transparency, the efficiency of payments times, and connecting workers with buyers of their services.
Furthermore, contingent or independent workers need to be looked at as more than a passing trend as the global workforce continues to change and grow. The rise of the so-called, “gig economy” is helping organizations address needs in the modern workforce. It was only a matter of time before technology altered the structure of how we work.
Blok leverages blockchain technology to connect employers and workers across the globe, simplify and shorten the complexities of payments, and ensure transparency and trust amongst groups.
The Blok platform uses smart contracts to eliminate friction in terms of time, cost, quality, and transparency in matching workers and companies. Blok seeks to empower workers and companies in the gig economy to efficiently optimize how they reach their goals, setting them up for sustained success.
By improving efficiencies for workers and companies, Blok provides a better and faster solution in fulfilling consumer needs in the on-demand economy. The Blok platform allows consumers, companies, and workers all to benefit from blockchain technology.
>When platforms monopolize power within the gig economy, workers are at risk for exploitation. Blok democratizes the gig economy by working with platforms rather than against them and by empowering workers.
Companies struggle providing quick payment to workers and sometimes take substantial fees as intermediaries. Blok allows workers to take home money and shrink payment cycles from biweekly to instantly.
Traditional corporate hierarchical is an outdated business model that concentrates power at the expense of workers. Decentralized and dynamic contracting will allow the market to remain competitive and lowers the risk of exploitation.
Companies will look to technology to transform their people and organizations into a highly adaptable enterprise. Blok platform makes it easy to connect with verified workers across the globe instantly, creating a liquid workforce.
Government and corporate bureaucracy hinder productivity.Decentralization is the only hedge against constraints on companies and workers. As the global economy continues to grow, bureaucracy is a threat to resilience, innovation, and initiative.
In the age of dynamic transformation, teams must transcend the organizational chart. Static teams produce static results and in the on-demand workplace, this can cause a company to fall behind.
