Gig Wage and Microsoft join forces

Gig Wage and Microsoft launched a partnership at the Microsoft Store at NorthPark Center. Our Founder and CEO, Craig J. Lewis was invited to share his expertise on technology tools that impact productivity and the future of work, and how Gig Wage helps small businesses support their contractors.

Supporters from all across the Dallas business community enjoyed a breakfast smorgasbord courtesy of Microsoft, and our Founder and CEO, spoke truth to power, expanding on his journey, and what the future holds for the gig economy at-large. The timing was perfect, as Microsoft just hit $1 Trillion market value for the first time. There’s a reason why companies like Microsoft reach such success. They are forward thinking and innovative. It’s no surprise that they care about the workforce of the future and supporting the small businesses that support contractors and freelancers.

One focal point was Gig Wage’s technology platform, which makes it simpler, faster and easier for you to pay, manage, and support your contractors — making it easier than ever to recruit and retain world-class gig talent. The partnership with Microsoft shows the need and interest around a payroll product designed specifically for paying contractors. Microsoft knows how important 1099s are to small businesses and is committed to bringing their customers the best solutions. Our partnership, which offers a special promotion for Microsoft SMBs, does just this.

Shortly after this kickoff event, our CEO, Craig J. Lewis, was invited to visit the Microsoft Campus just outside of Seattle, WA. He was asked to share his experience on Microsoft’s new podcast The Gig Mindset. We will share more about our visit to headquarter and the podcast when its published.
