The right people, just when your business needs them.
Meet Jacqui Bull 

Sidekicker Co-founder

The future of work is where workers can move fluidly from one company to another, from project to project. People will be finding work through their social and professional networks and skilled market places such as Sidekicker. Their online presence will essentially be their CV and their social networks will be their references.  

I met Tom, my co-founder when we were both on the commerce committee in Uni. It was very nerdy of us but we became great friends. In the interim of finishing my degree at University and starting as a business advisor at Deloitte, Tom and I started on the initial phases of Sidekicker. 

Once we started getting into the thick of the idea, I was pretty much hooked on it. I decided not to start the traditional graduate accounting career path which was an interesting conversation to have with my parents. It was a hard decision to turn down a Business Advisor role at Deloitte, however the opportunity to start my own business was extremely appealing.

5 months ago, I headed up to Sydney to launch Sidekicker there. The Australian startup community is really upbeat, vibrant and supportive. Everyone is working towards the common goal of increasing the number of successful Australian startups. It’s wonderful to see that all of us genuinely want to see each other succeed which helps foster a supportive learning community. 

At Sidekicker, we’re focused on finding innovative ways to attract, recruit and empower the best talent to bring them onto the platform. Workers want highly relevant jobs that suit their skills and what they’re looking for. They’re empowered by working with great people on awesome projects rather than a traditional career path of working your way up in an organisation. 

For an organisation, it’s going to be really exciting when a company can just scale up and scale down their resources as projects come and go. It’s going to be more agile and fluid. Businesses will be able to run leaner teams and have easier access to the skills and people they need only when they need them. 

We’re going to make the future of work a reality by providing the technology and platform that facilitates the connection between businesses and their perfect worker.

Notes on the future of work from Tom Amos, Sidekicker CEO:
Life for the Modern Worker
The labour market is in for a huge shake up over the next decade and things are going to change dramatically for workers. We are already seeing a fractionalisation in the workforce as more and more people are taking up temporary work, caused broadly by two factors:
1. Workers are looking for more control in their lives.
2. Full time opportunities may no longer exist as more organisations are looking increasingly towards greater flexibility in their overheads.
This structural change will have widespread ramifications and it is important that society is ready to deal with this change. At Sidekicker, we are trying to help this transition and are noticing the following challenges for the modern worker:
GROWING A PERSONAL BRAND
The modern worker will be required to grow a personal brand through online mediums as they move from employer to employer. These online profiles will become their credit scores around a skill set.
The strength of these profiles will dictate the rate an individual will charge and the demand for their services and it won’t be limited to creatives. If you are a hospitality professional, a brand ambassador, an accountant or even a lawyer, you will see a high increase working for employers around projects or fixed term roles.
These online profiles will highlight your skills, experience and most importantly, ratings & reviews from jobs you have completed. This profile will become your capital and your livelihood.
[[MORE]]
BEING PART OF A COMMUNITY
Communities of talent based on skill sets will allow the modern worker to develop their skills, networks and professionalism which will play an increasingly important role in supporting modern workers.
Communities will need to be more than online groups as humans crave social interaction. Coworking spaces such as inspire9, The Hub, Electron Workshop and York Butter Factory in Melbourne to name a few are already providing an offline community that provides freelancers and entrepreneurs the community and social interaction of larger organisations.
ENSURING REGULAR AND CONSISTENT PAY
The greatest challenge for the modern worker will be managing inconsistent cash flow and ensuring payment for services provided. We are seeing freelancers treated as a supplier which can mean payment terms of 30+ days. The modern worker will need to ensure that payment is via credit card and billed on installments. Companies like Uber and Airbnb have lead the way of the “Virtual Wallet” and payment occurs with a click of a button.
SAVING FOR RETIREMENT
As modern workers regularly move from one employer to the next around projects and assignments, it is imperative steps are taken to ensure superannuation is being contributed. Too many existing freelancers are simply not putting any funds into their super for a variety of reasons including a lack of understanding.
The modern worker will need to look for more agent type companies that manage all of the tax and superannuation requirements in the same way that current employers do. The structural changes will be a challenge for the modern worker and at Sidekicker, we are implementing the support and education to support these workers.

Meet Tom Amos – Sidekicker CEO
We believe building a great business relationship requires sitting down and getting to know who you are working with. We would like to share a bit about ourselves with you and get to know more about you as we grow. To kick off our new Meet the Team series, we invite you to sit back and read some insights from our CEO, Tom Amos.
A note from Tom:
The future of work has reached a turning point and businesses need to adapt to flourish. If you notice what’s been happening over the past two years, more and more of the workforce are quitting their corporate jobs to become freelancers. Studies show that by 2020, 40% of the workforce will be made of contract-only, project based employees. With the increase of millennials coming into the workforce, that number will continue to rise. The future of work challenges the convention of how organisations have been run and I aim to enable this change through Sidekicker.After a great start to my career as an accountant at Deloitte for 3 1/2 years, I felt I had accumulated enough knowledge on the fundamentals of running a business to start my own. Along with my co-founder Jacqui Bull, we started Sidekicker in Melbourne 18 months ago. At Sidekicker, we want to enable the community to work on what they’re passionate about and give them a new way to earn income and live a good life while building a career portfolio. [[MORE]]The Sidekicker platform allows small and medium enterprises to hire skilled workers on demand. We know that organisations with the best talent will succeed in the long run and we want to support freelancers and entrepreneurs by providing the infrastructure they need. With the backing from our supportive group of investors, we raised our first round in January 2014 which led us to new hires and expansion to other cities in Australia. One of our investors, Pete Williams, who I met at Deloitte has been instrumental in shaking things up  for us. We also brought on two advisors, Simon Terry and Ross Hill to guide us on building a sustainable business. We are currently implementing Sidekicker 3.0 and over the next few months you will get to experience a new way to hire or become a Sidekick. We will play a major role in shaping the future of work in Australia and I invite you to join the future with us.

Are you approaching business (and life) like Homer Simpson?

image

We love Homer Simpson because he’s funny, not because of his work ethic at the Nuclear Power Plant. And while we continue to laugh, we must strive to never, ever, run a business in the way that Homer would. 

Here are a few Homer inspired pointers to guide your business in the right direction:

"Oh, so they have internet on computers now!" 

Get digital

Homer Simpson isn’t the brightest crayon in the box but that’s no excuse for your business to be behind in the times. Technology is constantly changing so it’s vital to stay ahead of the competition and keep your company relevant, functional and efficient in today’s business environment.

Updating technology may seem daunting at first but breaking the task up into stages can be very helpful.  Your first step is to identify and appraise your existing systems. And then, to assess what is working, what isn’t and where changes can be made to increase efficiency and expand your client base. You may wish to call on the expertise of a digital agency or bring in new specialised, contract staff to assist in the transition into the digital world.

Run Your Business More Efficiently:
10 Simple ways to Save Time, Money and Resources
 Efficiency is vital to keep your business in business. With competition always around the corner, here are 10 simple ways to be ahead of the game.
Systemise
Working on your systems, which can be a simple as writing down how you go about each process in your business, will pave the way for growth and help you ‘get control of your cash, your time, and your customer experience.’ The E-Myth Revisited by Michael E. Gerber is a must read if you are interested in improving this area. Putting some time into improving your systems will save you time and resources and ensure your customers enjoy a consistently great experience. It can also open up opportunities for you to delegate tasks and outsource some key areas of your business with confidence.
[[MORE]]Outsource
Many companies are outsourcing ‘to provide services that might otherwise be performed by in-house employees.’ Online platforms like Sidekicker can connect your organisation with freelance professionals working at competitive rates, which may serve as a cost-effective alternative to hiring full-time staff, as well as bringing fresh ideas to the business. In today’s conditions an organisation has to work hard to keep up - and sometimes it is necessary to bite the bullet and ask for outside help.
Tune Up Your Technology
Technology is always evolving so companies need to be current to stay competitive. Here area few examples of efficient, functional and innovative online business services:
Xero is a great online accounting software with all the tools in a single platform to provide more efficient business practices.
Yammer assists with collaborating and networking with 76% of users having more visibility into other departments/locations and 80% more informed on their surroundings outside the organisation.
Boxsuite is an online rostering tool where staff hours and payments are easily managed and tracked. Never worry about scheduling employees again.
With many great technologies out there, convenience and efficiency are already available at the touch of your fingertips.
Time Hacks
Time wasted is money wasted. As a manager, it is necessary to identify employees’ strengths and allocate the right tasks for them. And then there’s the job of ensuring that staff are managing time effectively.
The Internet is teeming with great time hack ideas. One of the more interesting ideas is the Pomodoro technique. The idea is to work in short 25 minutes sessions then take a 5 minute break to ‘provide the user with maximum focus and creative freshness, thereby allowing them to complete projects faster with less mental fatigue.’ If your business has a massive ‘to do’ list this can help by keeping employee’s minds fresh and focused. After each 25 minute session ‘you mark your progress with an ‘X’ and note the number of times you had the impulse to procrastinate or switch gears to work on another task.’ Being on a timer allows staff to whiz through projects as they are more accountable for the level of work completed.
Get Smart About Social Networking
Social media can be a game changer as it can improve sales, reduce marketing costs and generate leads. More and more customers prefer communicating online so businesses that aren’t participating will fall behind. Hootsuite and Buffer are both online tools for managing you social networks, providing analytics and tracking any mentions of your company online. They also allow you to schedule content in advance, which can be a massive time saver.
Look For Leaks
Regularly auditing your organisation’s operational processes is a good idea. Identifying issues and making operational changes will help save money, streamline processes and terminate anything that’s no longer necessary.
Check your telecommunications contract, your insurance, and any other services to see whether you’re getting the best deal on the market. Even little changes like going green by using electronic invoices will save much needed time and money. It’s also worth visiting your lawyer to discuss the legal structure of your business, which may affect taxation, avenues for expansion and exposure to risk.
Pool Your Resources
Get your team together and brainstorm how to get the most out any of your current resources. You may be able to piggyback your advertising on other mail you already send or place it in the customer’s bag during a purchase for example. Also, you may consider the possibility of extra revenue by renting out space that isn’t needed or minimise your costs by sharing a space with another business. Besides the lower costs, ‘a shared office space can help home-bound entrepreneurs feel less lonely and provide a more upscale image for your company.’ It can also lead to some great networking and future leads.
Are You Working on The Things That Really Matter?
Are your current procedures still aligned with you business goals? As day to day tasks build up it’s easy to lose sight of the bigger picture but developing and working towards long-term goals is essential. And your goals should always be aligned to the needs of your customers.
Rather than ask ‘what we are good at? Ask ‘who are our customers and what else do they need?’ then aim to give that to them. George S. Day and Christine Moorman’s book ‘Strategy from the Outside In: Profiting from Customer Value' is a must read for anyone who really wants to understand their customers.
Now Focus
Set SMART goals and track your progress towards them. Make certain that all staff are aware of the organisation’s ambitions and set objectives in specific timeframes such as short and long-term goals. Include both ‘conservative and ambitious goals so you cover a range of possibilities without comprising your plans or losing motivation, and as with any goal or goal system, hold yourself and your team accountable.
