XI'AN, China, Nov. 17, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Shaanxi Eternal River Industry Co. Ltd, a high-tech company in northwestern China, announced that the company is planning to launch a global online job-matching platform in 2016.
The online-to-offline platform, AAwork, aims to build a bridge between knowledge workers, professionals and employers, and facilitate online transaction in a simple and efficient way.
The online portal is undergoing beta-test now and has received encouragingly positive feedback.
With the rapid development of information technology and social media, sharing economy has become a popular business model which enables the optimization of resources through the redistribution, sharing and reuse of excess capacity in goods and services.
It is also applicable in the labor market. Mobile technology has empowered people to end the limitation of fixed offices and enjoy a flexible work style. Freelancers have been growing enormously in recent years.
However, due to the information asymmetry, unequal distribution of labor resources as well as a lack of trust in society, the mismatch between the labor supply and demand grows more and more severely. On one hand, some professionals lay idle and they cannot find a platform to show their talents, while on another hand, employers complain that it is difficult to find appropriate brainpower, which results in waste of resources.
AAwork, taking advantages of the company's strong networks in IT sector and cloud counting technologies, will provide an open and transparent access to employers, knowledge workers and professionals so as to realize a peer-to-peer real-time sharing.
Employers, which include but not limited to companies, governments, individuals or non-profit organizations, just need to register with AAwork, post their recruiting information, screen candidates, make payment after the work is done, review and rate in the final step. Part-time employment or the task-based style will help them save costs.
Meanwhile freelancers with professional knowledge, by registering with AAwork and joining the talent pool, can get extra income sources after the online testing, application, interviewing and getting work done.
Gao Hongpeng, founder of AAwork and chairman of Eternal River, said "To embrace the Internet-plus era, e-work will be a pillar business in the new roadmap of Eternal River."
"Technology has changed people's life style and work style, the sharing economy model represented by Uber can tremendously optimize resources and remote e-work can overcome restrictions of time or space, enable professionals to donate small slivers of time to take care of tasks others need doing and create extra revenue sources." Said Gao.
