What is the Good Work Code?

If you’ve used an app to call a cab, order takeout, or schedule an appointment with a housecleaner, then you’re one of the growing number of people using the online or gig economy. Or maybe you’re counting on this new way of working to make a living.

For new economies like this one to thrive, worker well-being must be part of every business’s bottom line. Good Work Code is a set of overarching values including safety, stability and a livable wage.

Read the coverage of the Good Work Code in Fast Company and CNN Money. Visit the Good Work Code website to learn more about how the future of our economy can create good work for all of us.
