Good news, your team set up an Upwork account. When you need help with a project, just go to your team account to access flexible talent from creatives to financial specialists and software developers.

Wondering about Upwork and why you should join your team? Let’s get started.

Why should I join my team’s account?

Projects don’t happen in silos. Many times, you’re working with other team members and people across functions. By joining your team’s account, you can work on your own projects and also:

  • Share talent pre-vetted by your colleagues – Save time searching for help by sharing top talent who have skills other team members can use
  • Maintain project visibility—If someone is out sick, or leaves a project, anyone can jump in, see communication chains and project status to ensure no balls are dropped
  • Avoid bottlenecks—Talent and team members communicate directly with each other, so questions get answered faster and no one becomes a bottleneck
  • Keep work flowing forward—Easily share documents across teams to gather reviews and input faster
  • Scale project teams—Quickly ramp teams up and down and add new skills as needed
