Stevie Award-Winner Fulfills Freelancing Needs

Posted by Maggie Gallagher on Thu, Jan 26, 2017 @ 10:14 AM

Freelancer is the world's largest freelancing and crowdsourcing marketplace by number of users and projects.  The company recently won two People’s Choice Stevie Awards for Favorite Companies in the 13th Annual International Business Awards. We got a chance to talk to Sebastián Siseles, the International Director of Freelancer about how the group connected with the Stevie Awards years ago and how they’ve seen the value of winning .

The 2017 International Business Awards opens for nominations on February 1. Request your entry kit here and it will be emailed to you as soon as it's available.

Freelancer 1.jpgSebastián remembers when they, “became acquainted with the Stevies back in 2012, when a well-known media outlet announced the winners of the IBAs. We were convinced right away of its importance as it recognizes the achievements of the world's most important organizations and its leaders. The following year, in 2013, we decided we were ready to apply to the awards as Freelancer.com had grown to be an outstanding company. That same year we were honored with our first Stevie Award.”

Freelancer.com has become a staple in connecting employers and freelancers to do work together 24/7 across the globe. Sebastián relayed that, “Freelancer.com is the world's largest freelancing and crowdsourcing marketplace by number of users and projects. We connect over 23 million employers and freelancers globally from over 247 countries, regions and territories. Through our marketplace, employers can hire freelancers to do work in over 900 areas such as software development, writing, data entry and design right through to engineering, the sciences, sales and marketing, accounting and legal services.

Sebastián stressed the importance of their vision, which is providing jobs and changing the lives of at least one billion people all over the world. For example, in the Philippines, Freelancer.com partnered with the government's Department of Science and Technology to extend online freelancing opportunities to Filipinos in rural areas with limited employment options.

Sebastián continues that they also have, “an ongoing partnership with the Malaysian government’s Multimedia Development Corporation, which provides education for Malaysia’s B40 communities.”

Recently, the company concluded its first round of the Train-the-Trainers program, which educated fifty (50) trainers who will be deployed across Malaysia to help underprivileged Malaysians find online work.

Freelancer.com has been a global success, Sebastián reflects on their first nomination:

“At the time of the nomination, Freelancer.com hit the 15 million users milestone and we wanted to acknowledge our community by putting together an e-book: https://issuu.com/freelancercom/docs/15mm_ebook

Sebastián also notes the significance of winning a Stevie:

“Receiving an award is always an honour for Freelancer.com. It also serves as recognition for the team for all the hard work. We always try to be part of the amazing Stevies Gala and the chance of networking while being there is just awesome.”

“Our community celebrates with us whenever we share the news with them and this seems to further boost their trust on the marketplace. They are always deeply informed about the nominations and always eager to cast their votes for us,” Sebastián adds.

Sebastián highlights the results from winning a Stevie:

“Freelancer.com has gained a lot of exposure due to the awards that we were honored with in the past three  years which led to an increase in user acquisition. With each award, we have reinforced our leadership in the freelancing market, especially with the People´s Choice Awards.”

"Here are links to press releases on our Stevie Awards since 2015":

Freelance work is growing exponentially. Sebastián reports their findings in this growing sector:

“Expanding opportunities for entrepreneurship and jobseekers’ preferences are driving changes in the online freelancing and crowdsourcing industry. And as seen in our growing number of users from around the world (currently at 23 million), more and more businesses and entrepreneurs are hiring freelancers online and a growing number of skilled professionals are providing services in their fields of expertise.

Sebastián details their industry highlights in, “seeing more employers from small businesses to major companies now collaborating with freelancers through crowdsourcing. An example of this  is  NASA’s partnership with Freelancer. Not only are they crowdsourcing the best ideas through a contest on Freelancer.com, they are putting together a virtual team of freelancers from around the world through remote collaboration. For example, they will hire a graphic designer from Latin America, a web developer from Asia, and  an internet marketer from North America.  These freelancers are working together as a team despite their locations. This is why we are continuously looking for ways to equip our community based on how their needs are evolving.”

Lastly, we asked if there is an inspirational story related to Freelancer.com that might appeal to our blog readers. Sebastian shared their 15 million users e-book that contains stories of how Freelancer.com helped change the lives of our users: https://issuu.com/freelancercom/docs/15mm_ebook

Here are recent stories from Freelancer in the Philippines:

We spoke with Naeema Abdulla Abdulwahid the Unit Head – Creativity & Innovation Strategy & Corporate Excellence Office at Dubai Statistics Center. 

When we asked what the Dubai Statistics Center does, we received a packed mission statement that depicts cultural priorities, passions, and pride in their work, community, and culture.

Naeema relayed that the Dubai Statistics Center (“DSC”) provides smart and innovative statistical services with the highest levels of accuracy, reliability and transparency, which have a direct contribution to the sustainable development for the Emirate of Dubai and supporting the happiness of the community and future generations, by utilizing best technologies, practices and international standards with the support of the center's happy and creative work family.”

Naeema had a simple and clear response when we asked about the vision of DSC: Statistics that support in the creation of happiness and sustainable development.” Happiness and sustainability are recurring themes we can all appreciate.

The story behind their nomination goes beyond recognition and highlighted an extension of goodwill and vision.

“We are a distinguished organization. In-line with Dubai Statistics Center leader’s vision to obtain international recognition as credit of our accomplishments, we participated in the The Stevie Award due to the organization’s good reputation on an international level, specifically The International Business Awards.” Naeema expounded, “Moreover, we considered this an opportunity to exchange experience and knowledge with others internationally.” 

Naeema continued, “We first became acquainted through previous participations of entities and organizations in the UAE and based on the good reputation and reviews of the awards in various media channels.”

When asked her thoughts on winning the Stevie Awards Naeema shared, “a feeling of happiness and pride as DSC has achieved internationally recognized accomplishments and records achieved for the first time on the country’s level and the Arab region.” Naeema recalled, “keeping up with the award requirements and criteria motivated DSC staff to work in unique and distinct ways. This resulted in the center being highlighted as a distinguished international organization.”

On company results since winning their Stevie Awards, Naeema articulated that, “Spreading the culture of excellence among employees and our motivation to achieve international achievements has been one of the key goals which DSC leaders have sought to achieve since 2006. Winning the award has encouraged the DSC to win in other prestigious awards.”

Understanding the inspiration behind our Award Winners’ work is always a curiosity. To that regard, Naeema let us know, “The existence of our ambitious leadership with a vision for the future is embodied in one person: His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President of the UAE, Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai. He always seeks to make Dubai a leading city in all sectors to achieve prosperity and happiness for all segments of the society.”
