Working from home: Australia Freelance Market is in full operation during the corona crisis
Working completely from home ensures that Australia Freelance Market is fully operational during the corona crisis. IT, marketing, customer administration, as well as finance and accounting are fully operational and currently available with our full team of staff.
Since 50% or more of the projects we brokered allowed for telecommuting, the slump in the number of brokered projects is limited. Some projects that were previously carried out in physical locations are now being carried out via telework.
The corona crisis even added new projects, for example for IT specialists who are now ensuring that home workplaces are securely integrated into the company network.
However, there are also some companies that are now postponing their projects. For example, a long-term system documentation project for software and hardware at a leading medium-sized window manufacturer that was brokered by Australia Freelance Market at the beginning of March had been cancelled. The reason given by the head of department was that there are currently more important problems and that management has to primarily take care of its own people during the corona crisis.
