About The Agency List

The world of work is changing, accelerated by gen Z and the pandemic. Today, employees expect more flexibility and autonomy - supported by human connection and collaboration. There is a shift away from the traditional 9-5, with the freelance community growing exponentially. The agency world needs to adapt. Those agencies that see the value in having an agile workforce, supported in large part by a freelance community, have an edge when it comes to resourcing, and are well positioned to win in the war for talent.

At Worksome, we want to celebrate the agencies offering freelancers a great experience - and facilitate better connections between agencies and freelancers.

The winners

The following agencies are the best in the industry for flexible work, broken out the different categories that make them so desirable of a workplace for freelancers. They were chosen based on how they are utilizing freelancers as a core part of their workforce and the flexible, human-first experience they provide to these freelancers.

Without further ado we are proud to present The Best Places for Freelancers to Work: The Agency List 2022 by Worksome.
