What’s the difference between PeoplePerHour and TalentDesk.io?

Many people are curious about the difference between TalentDesk.io and PeoplePerHour, and we’re often asked to explain. So, we thought we’d break it down for you. Whether you are a freelancer who has been invited into a TalentDesk.io organisation or you are someone looking to employ, manage and automatically pay freelancers through one system this article is for you.

PeoplePerHour

In 2007, the PeoplePerHour team set out to connect a community of expert freelancers with small businesses and start-up enterprises.

Eleven years later, PeoplePerHour has connected over 750,000 clients to over 1,500,000 freelancers, and paid out over £100 million to the freelancer community, placing it at the forefront of the freelancer marketplace in the UK and Europe.

Empower Small Businesses and Startups

PeoplePerHour empowers people worldwide to live their work dream. The core mission is to support entrepreneurs and small business owners to build their businesses and become financially and professionally independent.

The PeoplePerHour freelance community consists of professionals from 150 countries with almost every skill you can imagine. From master content writers to specialist coders, graphic designers, social media experts, voice over artists, talented illustrators and much more. Freelancers are available to hire by the hour or by the project and are always there to support small businesses to achieve their goals.

TalentDesk.io

With the sustained rise of freelancing, in 2016 PeoplePerHour realised that larger companies needed more than just a freelancer marketplace to thrive. When dealing with multiple freelancers you start having to deal with recurring talent pools, team projects, multiple invoices and so on; so a new product was needed to handle these complex challenges. TalentDesk.io is a secure, cloud-based platform developed for organisations who need to engage and manage their contingent workforce. Put simply, TalentDesk.io is a Freelancer Management System. For full info on features please read: What is a Freelancer Management System – and Why You Need One.

Tailor-Made, Scalable and Flexible

TalentDesk.io brings both full time and freelance staff into projects where they can cooperate. This means retaining access to talent pools like PeoplePerHour, but adding custom on-boarding, project management capabilities and automated payments.

TalentDesk.io allocates a specialist to help you build a tailor made solution that fits your needs. Whether you want us to leave you completely alone or need a stabilising hand throughout the entire process, we are there to support you. Key features include the ability to:

  • Invite your recurring freelancers into your talent pool
  • Allow freelancers to apply to your talent pool via your website or LinkedIn page
  • Staff projects with multiple people by searching for skills within your talent pool
  • Keep track of project budgets and timelines
  • Allow freelancers to raise worksheets within each project
  • Automatically pay freelancers through the platform once you approve their worksheets
  • Much more…

After accepting the POP-UP from my PPH profile do I need to create an account on TalentDesk.io OR it is integrated with our PPH profile?

Hello!
You do not need to create an account – it is integrated with your PeoplePerHour profile.
Thank you!

Can I login with my PPH login credentials into TalentDesk.io account? But when I want to do this it can’t be done over TalentDesk.io account and it shows – “Invalid credentials”.

Hi Sibayan, you won’t be able to login to the TalentDesk.io portal until you receive an invitation from a TalentDesk.io client. As a PeoplePerHour freelancer, all you need to do for now is accept the new T&Cs in the pop-up window that will display the next time you log in to your PeoplePerHour account. Accepting these terms means that you agree to receive notifications from TalentDesk.io with invitations from enterprise clients. You can always opt out via the notification settings on your PeoplePerHour account.

I’ve accepted the Pop up from pph, is there any changes for the pph profile that I have, I don’t really see any new buttons / icons about Talentdesk integrated with my pph profile, does it work only when someone invites me to a project ?

Hi Grey, you don’t need to make any changes to your PeoplePerHour profile as it’s automatically integrated with TalentDesk.io. Yes, you’re correct, you’ll be able to see the platform when a TalentDesk.io client invites you to join them on a project.

Hello PPH,

I think you have to create/modify or enhance your PPH app rather than creating another platform.

I have a general comment. Why did you decide to trim off the date and time from the comments that readers post in your blog? Don’t you think it’s a vital information for the readers? Every normal blog that allows users to post comments always include a visible timestamp. It adds credibility for the readers that the comments are not fake, just my two cents…

Excellent idea! I hope it works out for Freelancers in a great way. Hopefully, this will ameliorate a criticism I’ve had for some time, where hi value CAD projects are disappearing to other platforms, from PPH.
