Demonstrating its commitment to providing growth opportunities for African professionals, TERAWORK hosted its first #BeyondWork event, an initiative that brought together freelancers and professionals for a health-conscious event which took place at the company’s offices on the 10th of September, 2022.

The maiden edition of #BeyondWork, a TERAWORK initiative that aims at bringing freelancers and cerebral thinkers into one space to dissect the issues affecting the workplace and workforce, held on the 10th of September, 2022.

The health-conscious hybrid event which was held via Zoom and at the TERAWORK corporate offices in Lagos, Nigeria, brought together a cross-section of top freelance professionals and experts for issue-based conversations about the future of work and the workplace. Also included in the event was a warm-up session with Yinka Davies and free medical investigation/diagnosis and consultation.

"#BeyondWork…is a "feng shui" atmosphere that is best created by you. #BeyondWork is about finding a cause to believe in and truly live for after the routinous grind we find ourselves in that has never given us satisfaction." - Yinka Davies.

As a brand that cares for its community, #BeyondWork by TERAWORK achieved its goal to inspire freelancers, address the fears of the entrepreneurship/freelance market, and defeat the stereotype that freelancing is not sustainable by sharing stories of excellence within the space. All of these are in line with TERAWORK’s community vision of aiding the provision of the best services by freelancers.

The future of work is democratic. Anything that anybody knows, they learned it, and if they learned it, it means you can also learn it. Even when we think about work, we need to think about preserving our humanity. The healthier you are - mentally, physically, or emotionally - the more of an impact you can actually make." - Salem King. 

Focusing on the organisation’s long-term goal to take outsourcing to the next level by offering a robust platform that matches customers with the most suitable freelancers for their job offers, TERAWORK believes that the #BeyondWork event will help freelancers to gain a broader view of the role of their health in their career and economic advancement.

According to TERAWORK's CEO, Femi Taiwo, "It cannot just be the norm. For our freelancers, TERAWORK is not just to connect them to the next gig, it’s about a safe and borderless community to work, doing jobs they are passionate about and in good health, getting the right support and timely rewards and fulfillment for their sweats, and truly creating wealth. For our customers, it can't just be about hiring and managing talents, but getting values for every dime spent on talent and truly growing their enterprises and our economy, regardless of the 'japa' syndrome."

Often referred to as the "Fiverr for Africa", TERAWORK is focused on giving Africa's growing gig economy a boost by providing a platform for the thousands of individuals, agencies, and SMEs who are offering and engaging freelance services on TERAWORK. And through the #BeyondWork initiative, it seeks to build on its successes and that of its users continuously.
