Description

Calling Connecticut freelancers: your input is needed!


Voya Financial is looking for a group of individuals to join in focus group discussions around freelancer needs/wants when it comes to saving and investing, as well as any specific challenges you might face working as a freelancer. These focus group sessions will be hosted at Hartford's hub for entrepreneurial talent: Upward!


As a thank you for your participation, all focus group participants will be provided food, beverages AND a $50 VISA gift card!


The purpose of this 90 minute session is strictly informational: Voya Financial is interested to learn about the different products and services that may be of use to you in your freelance role, and are in no way trying to sell you anything. With your participation you will be helping Voya to understand how they can better serve the freelancer market as a whole.


Who is eligible to participate?

Voya is looking for two groups of 8-10 individuals who have engaged in supplemental, temporary, project- or contract-based work within the past 12 months. All ages, genders, industries & backgrounds welcome!


Sample participants:

  • Diversified Workers: An individual with multiple sources of income from a mix of traditional employers & freelance work, e.g. someone who works part-time at a corporation, manages an AirBnb and/or does freelance photography
  • Independent Contractors: Full-time freelancers who work on a project-to-project basis
  • Moonlighters: An individual who works a full-time corporate job and works freelance gigs at night/on the weekends
  • Freelance Business Owners: Freelancer who has one or more employees working in their small business or startup
  • Temporary Workers: Individuals with a single employer, job, contract project that is temporary e.g. data entry employee hired by a staffing agency on a 3-month contract basis.
