To help businesses harness the power of employing a temporary workforce, Tekramspace, a start-up firm, which specialises in connecting businesses with freelancers, has concluded plans to put on stream an online portal where businesses and freelancers can work together.
The portal, THISDAY learnt, will also encourage post and bid on projects and unlock all the benefits that accrue.
Speaking with reporters recently in Lagos, on how the online portal will operate, Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer, Tekramspace Nigeria Limited, Mr. Abiodun Owotomo, said businesses are under increasing pressure to achieve bottom line growth and deliver constant innovation in an overcrowded market in a changing global economy.
Owotomo said businesses that plan to survive in such environment must explore new and innovative ways to generate sales, display a tight control on costs and constantly update organisation skills.
He said: “More companies are turning to temporary employees to address these very challenges and gain the benefit of employing a component of flexible workforce either through contract employees or projects”.
He listed the benefits of working with Tekramspace to include cost saving to the business from more efficient delivery and timely completion of projects. Savings will also be made on pension contributions, health benefits, administrative and other associated costs which can be substantial in the long run. Other benefits include harnessing of new skills and increased the quality of projects.
“Working with this company is as easy as opening an email account and you could be up and running in a matter of minutes. See what contract employees can do for your business,” he added.
The objective of this initiative is for Tekramspace to contribute its quota to government's effort at reducing unemployment in the country, Owotomo said, adding that "Tekramspace is a Nigerian business that is keen to see significant improvement in the lives of fellow Nigerians."
