We Are Rosie is the future, and the future is now. We didn’t just decide that we’re the future with bravado. We have spent the last six months conducting an exhausting research study to prove our mission about the future of work in advertising and marketing. We heard from industry visionaries, our own clients, and of course our community of talent. The results of the study prove that our vision and model is what they want the future to look like.
The prevalence of the global Coronavirus pandemic has significantly shifted the working landscape across all industries. Self-isolation has not only forced teams to start working remotely, but has also meant our social lives have become restricted.Throughout these unprecedented times, it’s hard to recognize the unique opportunities to make the most out of this period.Without the necessity of commuting to an office, or even having the freedom to spend time outdoors, most of us will have a surplus of time confined within our homes.As most of the population turns to Netflix to fill this void, others are beginning to harness this opportunity to upskill their professional development from the comfort of their home.

The face of business in the U.S. is changing — and it’s being fueled by a dynamic, impassioned and rapidly expanding freelancing workforce. Recent statistics reveal that in 2019, more than 57 million people (35% of the American workforce) have migrated to independent consulting, a 4 million person upswing over just the last five years. Additionally, American freelancer earnings are rapidly approaching the $1 trillion benchmark. These numbers are only expected to rise as more businesses embrace freelance hiring models to power corporate benefits such as cost savings, performance agility, and greater access to a diverse range of expert creative talent.
At We Are Rosie, we’ve been promoting remote work since we’ve launched two years ago. This type of work meets the needs of so many talented individuals and we’re pleased to report 90% of our Rosies have worked on remote jobs. But the unexpected can happen at any time, and it’s important that companies are prepped to have a remote working plan to accommodate challenging times without losing any productivity.
