National Independent Worker Day, hosted by iPSE-U.S., the Association of Independent Workers, established America’s first National Independent Worker Day to raise awareness of Independent Workers who are not afforded benefits. The day is designed to remind all Independent Workers that they are significant within the workforce, they are supported and that they have a voice. It will honor the tens of millions of Independent Workers, Contractors, Consultants, Freelancers, Self-Employed, Gig Workers who live day-to-day without benefits. The first inaugural day will be held digitally to recognize all Independent Workers nationwide, and future days will be hosted and celebrated with in-person events filled with inspirational speakers, informative workshops and webinars, as well as meaningful conversations with thought-leaders across the globe.
According to recent research, nearly 40% of the U.S. workforce will engage in independent work by 2023, an increase of 2.6% over the next four years. The partnership hopes to promote Independent Worker rights for all Americans who choose alternative work arrangements. The modern labor workforce has dramatically shifted over the years, leaving gaps in insurance and benefit compensation packages that are typically provided by traditional employment-based organizations.
Carl Camden, Founder and President of iPSE-U.S., The Association of Independent Workers, commented: “we will curate and develop fairly-priced memberships featuring content and services to inspire both social synergy for individuals and to impact organizations through Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR).”
National Independent Worker Day is a collaboration between iPSE-U.S., a not-for-profit organization, and iWorker Innovations a national insurance brokerage enablement platform which has formed a strategic partnership for Independent Worker advocacy initiatives. The collaboration will focus on social impact and public-private partnerships that support portable benefit development and advocate for America’s Independent Workers.
