Hiving: Good for Bees, Better for Business

A new trend in small business is taking flight. It’s called hiving: an organizational structure where small business owners and freelancers with complimentary services come together as needed to provide services to clients under one company name.

These hives give clients a one-stop shop experience with professional experts on their team, and the hives give individual business owners the freedom to pursue projects without the support of traditional employees and unnecessary overhead. When new business is won, the individual goes to the hive to pick the right people for the job.

This practice is getting a lot of buzz. In fact, a recent Wall Street Journal article touted the innovative approach that creative freelancers are bringing to delivering outstanding work to clients.

My Blue Robot was founded on the principals of hiving, long before hiving was a term. To us, it just made sense: bring the best talent to each job, eliminate overhead fees, deliver great work, and keep costs in check. To learn more, contact us today!
