Novare Executive Search Launches Digital Platform for Gig Economy
Today, a growing number of workers are opting for alternative employment models over traditional, full-time, permanent roles. Part-time, contingent, contract, temporary, freelance, independent contractor, on-demand online and platform working – call it what you will, they are all on the rise. Businesses and those who work for them want choice, flexibility and alternative ways of working that build resilience for less predictable futures. Stockholm-headquartered Novare Executive Search recently made an investment in the gig economy with the launch of GigAssembly, a digital meeting place for consultants and companies.
“With a growing gig economy and a changing labor market, it is important that we, as one of Sweden’s leading players in the HR industry, adapt and expand our offering,” said Sohaila Bagger-Sjöbäck, founder of GigAssembly.
With GigAssembly’s platform, companies can independently search for professional and quality-assured consultants through a user-friendly digital tool. “Thanks to Novare’s established position in the recruitment industry, GigAssembly has access to a wide network, which means that our digital investment is unique in the market,” said Fredrik Hillelson, founder and CEO of Novare.
Initially, GigAssembly will mainly focus on competencies in HR, finance, administration, marketing and sales, but the long-term plan is to expand the network over time and become Sweden’s leading platform for finding professional consultants, Novare says. GigAssembly also has Novare Interim & Recruitment behind it, which can support during recruitment processes, as well as meet specific requests or requirements profiles.
“We already have a wide network of both professional consultants and clients, and via GigAssembly we want to make it easier to connect expertise with demand,” said Ms. Bagger-Sjöbäck. “Just because it is fast and digital, you do not have to compromise on quality. All consultants presented in the platform have registered with BankID and undergone a background check via Valida. We can also offer various additional services linked to quality assurance to customers who request extra support in the recruitment process.”
Novare, founded by Mr. Hillelson in 2001, consists of a number of firms with expertise in human capital management. Novare Executive Search offers a wide range of leadership services including executive search, management assessment, board recruitment and personal due diligence. It has operations in Sweden and global coverage through AltoPartners with offices in countries across the Americas, Europe, the Middle East, Africa and Asia-Pacific.
