Play Your Ace Card And Stay Engaged On AceLancer Bay

Imagine this:
1. You are a freelance professional and you have a whole host of short-term engagements to choose from.
2. If you are an employer, you can select the best individuals for specific projects from a larger pool than normal.

In this digital age of ‘sharing’ and ‘on-demand’ economy where temporary, flexible jobs are trending upwards due to changing demands from companies and a shift in employees’ mindsets as they become increasingly mobile, these scenarios are not just for idle imagination!

Andrew Yap, chief executive officer of InnoBay Group and serial entrepreneur, saw this space and has created AceLancer Bay, a human capital website for the contract professional and self-employed including lawyers, architects, software developers and plumbers.

Andrew says: “With the current reality that people tend to change jobs several times throughout their working lives and our Singapore government is anticipating the rapid rise of this new economy generation, society is evolving to see freelancing not as a compromised option but as a viable career of choice. I see a new profession rising, the serious professional freelancer whom we call AceLancer on our integrated online platform.”

AceLancer Bay matches professionals with organizations that require their services on short term who might otherwise be too high-priced to maintain on staff for specific projects or fulfill their project delivery obligations to stay competitive or afloat to ride out the economic storm. All to suit today’s economy that is part of a shifting cultural and business environment that includes a sharing economy. Besides, work can be done from anywhere because jobs and locations have decoupled.

From the perspective of the professional freelancer, it can improve work-life balance as he or she chooses the jobs of interest, rather than be forced into a position where, unable to attain employment, they pick up whatever temporary jobs they can land.

In short, AceLancing gives the employer flexibility and the employee a sense of control in his own career development.

As the name implies, AceLancer Bay aims to be the platform for a safe harbour and home of sorts for the well-respected professional freelancers to get together, who choose to work as AceLancers, and also for fresh graduates who are finding their professional niche before deciding which one.

Andrew says: “We call them AceLancers because they are freelancers in their respective professions who are top in their jobs, an Ace to employers, and serious about AceLancing with us. They must have the tenacity to succeed and work towards a sustainable career plan. AceLancing is not for the casual worker and we do not encourage part-time work if you already have a full-time job as it might affect your performance”.

AceLancer Bay also aspires to be the platform to engage and build a community of independent professionals who can market their services, network, make contacts and even collaborate to leverage on the synergy of their various skill sets to take on resource intensive projects which one ‘working in silo’ would otherwise not be able to take up.

Andrew says: “The forum is in fact one of the more significant aspects of our integrated online platform with members sharing their challenges, such as payment issues or pricing, instead of being exploited as a less informed individual. Forums could also cover otherwise out-of-reach services – legal advice, for example – that an individual with limited resources is seeking.

How does AceLancer Bay work? For the employer, all he or she needs to do is to go to the AceLancer website www.AceLancerBay.com to register with the details of the company even if the job description is not in hand just yet. Registration is free until 31st December 2017. For the professional, acelance your details today for free. (No time limit).

Andrew adds: “As the way we work in this new economy catches on, I look forward to the day when AceLancer becomes the generic word for the professional freelancer – just like “WhatsApp me” has come to mean “Message me”!

Freelancing

Positive Signs For Freelancing

Freelancing is becoming the norm in the new economy where people are connected to on demand services at the touch of a button.

A recent study in America showed that from 2014 to 2015, there was an increase of 700,00 new freelancers entering into the new economy. 60% started freelancing by choice and see it as a viable career option.

1 in 2 freelancers would not stop freelancing and switch to a full time job with an employer no matter how much they were paid. This represents a change in mindset that working a full time job is the only way to carve a career.

In 2016, 60% of freelancers surveyed earned more doing freelancing and 3 in 4 earned more within the first year.

The brightest days for freelancing are yet to come, according to 83% of respondents.

On the local scene, NTUC has set up freelanceXchange to provide support services that help make freelancer life’s easier and more sustainable. They hope to create a better future of freelancing for everyone.

According to their Facebook page:
“There are about 200,000 freelancers and self-employed workers in Singapore and this number will continue to grow. Passion, flexibility and industry norms are reasons why an individual choose freelancing, as a professional, part-time or project basis. To support and empower freelancers in nurturing viable careers, and represent their collective interests as one united voice.”

From PM Lee of Singapore:
“And in light of the changing workforce, Mr Lee called on the labour movement to not only rally the workers, but to widen its reach to cover not only PMETs but also new economy jobs.

“If we keep the labour movement to the old formulation, which is the bargainable blue-collar workers mainly, I think we are just going to represent fewer and fewer people, and that’s bad for the labour movement; that’s bad for Singapore.

“We need you to be representative, to be strong, to have a vibrant base, to be able to do good things,” Mr Lee said.

“And that means you have to widen, you have to expand, from the union movement, to the labour movement, to cover the professionals, to cover the new economy jobs, even Uber drivers, even those who are doing freelancing. We have to find ways to bring them in.”
