It is easy to overlook the daily work we all have to do in order to maintain our current lifestyle. We have to cook to eat, shop for daily needs, commute to reach places and work, and keep our living spaces clean, well, for obvious reasons. We all employ human effort in some form or another for all of these tasks. No one is immune to it.
We need cooks to prepare food for us. It could be the cook at home or the cook in a restaurant who makes the food you order.
We need drivers to chauffeur us around. Again, this could be your driver, the taxi driver or the bus driver you use to reach a destination.
You get the point!
The number of people we work with on a daily basis could easily run into a ‘lot of people,’ if we look close. See deeper and we will realize the importance of other people in our lifestyle.
These are the people you have to coordinate, talk and trust for the tasks. They need to be proficient in the things they contribute, and shouldn’t have any malicious intent. Everyone is essential and make up a part of our daily lives.
Even though we can automate most of the ‘human effort,’ it still remains largely handled by people. Tesla, with autopilots in its cars, is one of the first stabs in reducing the ‘human effort’ needed for commuting.
Which, frankly, is still ‘work in progress’ and will fail in most countries outside of the US.
Try the Tesla Autopilot in India and you won’t go 100 meters without the system running into multiple unknown scenarios.
It would be dangerous, to say the least!
We all overlook the authenticity of all the human effort we have to employ to have the normal life we enjoy. We have no idea if the person we are trusting to get our food delivered to our doorsteps is trustworthy.
Yes, your food delivering service has policies in place to make sure the delivery-person is trustable — but again, these are policies and with the human factor involved, the assurance falls seriously short of trust.
The system which keeps everything in order, believe it or not, is the same system we often criticize. The state government and state laws.
It is the fear of breaking the law which keeps most of these human efforts from defaulting; from hurting one another and from doing whatever they want.
‘The Real Human Effort’ Will Define ‘The Real Future of Work’
Great things in business are never done by one person. They’re done by a team of people. — Steve Jobs
The same quote can be extended to any work we do, big or small.
And to anyone we work with, be it your team at your office or your household help. It doesn’t matter if the team is just two people.
Results enhance dramatically with the addition of people to any work we do. The involvement of people helps you to build things which are complicated.
And, the future is guaranteed to be complicated if anything.
We believe that the best way to look at the future of work is to look at individuals and to find out how we can produce value as a team.
You are a team when you are chauffeured to your work. You and your driver make a team.
We believe the definition of work is much more open than just the work you do to earn a living or the work you do as a profession.
We define work to be a product of the human effort.
We want to instil authenticity into all work.
Everyone should be able to authenticate the human effort they are employing.
We should be able to know more about the people we work with irrespective of the time involved or the scope of work.
This is the vision we are building towards. With SpringVerify we want the people to know exactly who they are working with. Trust them and be part of a team in the truest of sense.
We Want to Enable More Work Through ‘The Human Effort’
There is a vast pool of human talent out there which needs to be tapped into. The hurdles are real. There is a lack of employable talent and problems in finding talent.
We envision the future of work to be open, without boundaries of companies and organizations, and diverse.
We are building services which will help solve problems faced during and after hiring, for everyone.
SpringVerify is the modern take on the age-old problem of employee verification being costly, tedious, and out of reach of small businesses. We are trying to build a platform where the employee verification process happens seamlessly and with minimal effort required from both the company and the employee.
We believe that employee verification is a must for any business. It is a critical process in ensuring that every employee working with you is faithful and could be trusted. CareerBuilder survey shows that a company stands to lose on average $17000 on a wrong hire. Read more here.
We have built the platform with blockchain and believe that it will change virtually everything it comes in contact with. Blockchain helps us in building a decentralized system; which keeps all our data secure and immutable. Read more here.
