Uber of work

Wikimploi is the Uber of work

Where Uber organises outmoded and inefficient taxi traffic and car use, Wikimploi simply combines the empty offices and other workspaces, unemployed professionals and competitive work.

Wikimploi uberificates the function and activity of Ministries of Employment, which can either:

  • merge the Wikimploi mechanism into their services, or
  • opt out from the Wikimploi mechanism.

When a Ministry of Employment merges the Wikimploi mechanism into its services, doors can be opened for the thousands motivated and professional unemployed to start work. As a societal actor and with its authority status a Ministry of Employment can act as the host for Wikimploi.

If a Ministry of Employment opts out from the Wikimploi mechanism and does not develop anything better, the ministry will be dismissed by the unemployed, real estate owners and enterprises as unnecessary. Wikimploi will be organised outside the ministry, and the ministry’s inefficient yearly billions meant for organising and creating work will be distributed through other channels, through uberification. It is not ok to allow a politically controlled ministry to continue to waste billions, year after year.

Each and every Employment Ministry can access and start implementing Wikimploi immediately, free of charge.

Uberfication of work will change Ministries of Employment

Ministries of Employment will need to change and renew themselves as any other manmade organisation. The function and organisation of the ministry and of its entities will be streamlined and made more efficient.

While the amount of personnel will stay the same, if not increased, the majority of it will be replaced and the local branches of the ministry will be totally renewed.

Wikimploi is the Uber of organising work

The Wikimploi mechanism streamlines the organisation of work for the unemployed. In the current model of Ministries of Employment the public officials, unemployed and enterprises just wait. They wait for economic growth, foreign investments and new business generated (hopefully) by education and innovation activities – meanwhile all the fore listed takes years to manifest.

Instead of merely waiting, the Wikimploi mechanism immediately initiates work and action in teams. When the locked doors of empty offices and other workspace are opened, all those coming in can say they are going to work.

What will the motivated professionals do in the Uber of employment?

On average some 20% of the unemployed have their education and motivation right. They need zero training in writing a CV or a job application and zero entrepreneurship education. They can immediately start to organise and generate new business together, like each and every entrepreneur before them.

It is clear that many of them will start a competing business with their former employer and many will start offering more efficient services to the public administration. The motivated 20% naturally also includes marketing professionals who can take charge and organise the commercialisation and export of the new services.

Via the uberification of work and the organisation of work through the Wikimploi mechanism, all inefficient and economically zero-sum game sectors will be renewed and the weakest links eliminated.

The Wikimploi mechanism has many features and characteristics that are typical to uberification.

It is also a one stop shop for those entrepreneurs, who want their company to continue to thrive even after a change of owner or generational change, because it is easy to find a suitable successor to run one’s business amongst the Wikimploi network of professionals.

New companies operating in the Wikimploi framework quickly create new municipal service businesses allowing municipalities to outsource and buy the general maintenance services (corridor people) far cheaper and more efficiently. This way the municipalities get some (financial) leeway as the dead weight of inefficient salaries accumulated over decades is lifted away. The same model will be applied broadly to civil service, universities and many private companies.

One major measure of uberification of work is to start the reforms from the biggest handicaps and hindrances – the most inefficient, weakest and bureaucratic sectors, work and personnel. Just like the cleaning of a hard disc is started from getting rid of the largest files (the unnecessary videos, music and pictures), a municipality, an employment ministry and an enterprise will begin removing its handicaps efficiently by getting first rid off the personnel making bad decisions and organising waste of resources. Often these people are those that have the highest salary, so it is the most profitable and lucrative to directly change the middle and senior management. This way, weak decisions, worthless actions and high salaries will decrease on several levels.
