READY Associates pitch deck

New Norfolk, VA based startup company READY Associates recently launched in Hampton Roads, Virginia, with a new business staffing service positioned at the forefront of the rise of the gig economy. Alternative work arrangements like gigs, freelance, contingent & contract work represent a growing dynamic in the economy of the U.S. and new reality for many American workers, and according to new research:

• More than 15% of the US labor market is now made up of “alternative” work
• This type of work collectively represents 80% or more of net new job growth since 2005


“Despite the rise of online freelance marketplaces, we think the best results in business still come from connecting the right people and letting them work together to make things happen,” READY Associates Founder, George Arbogust says. And with this in mind, the company focuses on bringing together local businesses who need flexible hiring options and professional skill sets but prefer to hire local candidates versus online talent.
