MINNEAPOLIS – Sept. 3, 2015 – Field Nation, the contingent work platform for business, today announced it has been included in a new report from Staffing Industry Analysts (SIA) called, “Human Cloud Landscape: 2015 Update.” The Human Cloud is an emerging $10 billion+ industry characterized by websites, apps and other digital platforms built to help organizations or individuals transact or complete various types of work arrangements using a computer, mobile phone or other digital device.
“This report includes a ranked list of the largest providers in the world, measured by 2014 gross spend, as well as global market estimates by spend category, how work is performed, and whether end users are primarily businesses or consumers,” said David Francis, research analyst at SIA and author of the report. “Collectively, we estimate these platforms accounted for between $8.9 and $11.1 billion in spend around the world. It’s hard to even call it emerging anymore. That said, the space is evolving rapidly, and stakeholders that have an interest in the independent/ temporary workforce should sit up and take note.”
The company is categorized as a Freelancer Management System, a sub-segment of Online Staffing Platforms, and is the second largest such provider on the list.
Field Nation ranked 14th overall in the broader Human Cloud category.
“Staffing Industry Analysts is among the top advisors tracking the contingent workforce market,” said Mynul Khan, founder and CEO of Field Nation. “The Human Cloud Landscape report is unique in that it looks at companies established to help people complete on-demand work with contract and contingent labor. We’re pleased that Field Nation is recognized as a leader in our industry.”
Since its launch in 2008, Field Nation has grown dramatically. The company evolved its web platform and SaaS-based offering, which enables organizations to connect with skilled independent workers, manage projects with workflow management tools, and pay contractors as soon as work is completed. Field Nation appeared on the Inc. 500 list of Fastest Growing American Companies in 2013 and 2014. In May 2015, Field Nation purchased FieldSolutions as part of its strategic growth initiative. Today, the company employs more than 100 professionals.
