“Just because you were born in a remote part of Ethiopia does not mean that you are not talented in coding, designing or writing. And if you are based in Africa, you can still work for an Irish business or a company in New York.
In many cases, it may only mean you haven’t had the opportunities.”
Aside from the charitable, ethical and socially responsible work practices, there are other advantages to using this platform, like having access to a global talent pool that you can scale up or down very quickly as required.
“We have talent in 170 countries, and we use time zones to work to our benefit and also different price points. We give 6% of our revenue to our charity partners, and we also give back through our Pathways in-house program,” Hucker explains.
This initiative is based on the premise that the future of work doesn’t require a conventional career path or even physical presence at a specific workplace. Instead, it focuses on the skills and experiences to perform a role.
Giving hope and creating opportunities for young people in developing countries has been the driving force behind Hucker's work for the last twenty years.
Through his dedication, hard work and support from his team, he has changed the lives of many children, providing safe homes, education and a future that previously would have been only a dream.
