oDesk, the marketplace for online workteams, today released their Manifesto for Online Work. The company, which makes remote work relationships as reliable and open as working in the same physical office, is the first to offer a manifesto for online work. The goal of the Manifesto is to demonstrate that online work is just as viable as traditional work – and in fact, that oDesk has developed the best business model for both buyers and providers. oDesk is the only company to offer guaranteed payment to providers and guaranteed work to buyers. The Manifesto is a declaration to professionals who sell their services through the Internet marketplace and the companies that hire them: Don't settle for less than you deserve.
