the Field

By 2020, more than 40% of the work force will be independent workers in the U.S. alone (Bureau of Labor Statistics). Many of them will be working at co-working places. How can we benefit the most from this strong creative work force?

“the Field” is an augmented decision-making tool for co-working places. It achieves a more logical spacial distribution of co-workers by an interest-based tag system. In prospect, it will help to form a physically connected talent-cloud that distributes work opportunities to qualified professionals .
