WRKFRCE, A DIGITAL MEDIA COMPANY DEDICATED TO REMOTE WORK, LAUNCHES
wrkfrce Is the First Company Dedicated to Providing Resources for the Burgeoning Population of Location-Independent Professionals and the Companies That Employ Them
NORTH AMERICA, 11/11/20 – wrkfrce, a digital media company dedicated to remote work, officially launches today. wrkfrce is the only media brand that caters specifically to the remote workforce, providing information, tools, and inspiration to location-independent professionals and the businesses they work for.
wrkfrce was founded in 2019. Amid the 2020 coronavirus pandemic and mandatory social distancing, new data reveal that nearly half of Americans are now working from home. The pandemic has forced many companies to make the shift to location independence, and wrkfrce can help them navigate this transition and implement long-lasting best practices. In addition, employers increasingly understand that to attract and retain top talent, they must offer flexible and remote work opportunities and learn to better manage employees in those roles.
“wrkfrce was founded on the idea that when we design our careers around our lives—and not vice versa—we are more productive and more fulfilled,” says Jesse Chambers, CEO and founder. “The more harmonious the relationship between our careers and our lives is, the happier we will be. Research shows that employees who have greater flexibility are more productive and more loyal to their employers. Our hope is that wrkfrce can help support these companies through this time and influence them to implement a culture that permanently supports location-independent work.”
wrkfrce creates and curates educational, inspirational, and actionable online content that empowers individuals and businesses to take part in flexible and remote work. At launch, wrkfrce already has 60-plus educational articles available, like “How Remote Work Has Impacted Social Media,” “Data Analysis: Which Jobs Can Be Done from Home,” and remote work playbooks; more than 250,000 job postings for location-independent roles; and experts who regularly contribute new, informative content. wrkfrce is committed to being a comprehensive resource as the landscape of work culture continues to evolve.
“The work-from-home movement was already thriving,” says Darren Murph, a pioneer in the remote transformation space and special advisor to wrkfrce. “A global pandemic altered many facets of our lives, including a reevaluation of the integration between work and life. Many now realize that success can be achieved from anywhere, along with deeper personal fulfillment outside the workplace. Many businesses are still charting their course to an accelerated future. In 2019, the team at wrkfrce began pursuing their mission to be the go-to resource for the workforce of today and beyond. Those already engaged in the movement welcome their arrival, and for all of us—regardless of work style—the pandemic has only made that mission more critical.”
