Oct 10, 2023

Yardstik is thrilled to announce a new strategic partnership with Gig Wage, a pioneer in GigForce Management. Gig Wage helps businesses deliver instant payments to gig workers and independent contractors. Their innovative platform is modernizing and streamlining the relationship between businesses and workers, which makes them a picture-perfect partner for Yardstik. 

Why? Because, like us, they’re committed to building tools that address the urgent and costly needs of the growing gig economy. It’s no secret that the gig economy is shaping the future of work in real time. Businesses that want to play the game and win need modern tools that help them work more efficiently, stay competitive, and act fast when speed is the only option.

Yardstik and Gig Wage are investing in the future of work today by giving businesses connected tools for sourcing, screening, verifying, onboarding, and paying a new generation of workers.  

“We’re really excited about this partnership and what it means for our customer,” said Anthony Ostrowski, VP of Revenue at Yardstik. “It’s the result of a shared vision that both organizations have in making the gig economy better and safer for everyone—businesses, customers, and the workers themselves.
