’Lystable has provided a really powerful, simple platform ’

Our contributors are at the heart of our work. We cover so many topics and themes, from global migration trends to the future of big data, and we draw on people with all kinds of skills and backgrounds.

Previously, to find contributors, we relied on word of mouth recommendations, water cooler ‘serendipity’ or various disconnected contributor spreadsheets. It was inefficient and there were many ‘unknown unknowns’.

Lystable has provided a really powerful, simple platform which means all editors have access to a global network of our freelancers. It is saving us masses of time and ensuring we continue to only work with the best contributors.

From a backoffice and admin perspective, the time saving on onboarding and issuing work has been significant. Lystable’s USP is that it not only benefits our editorial teams, but also is valued by HR, legal and finance.

Since we started using Lystable, we have had a super positive response from our network of contributors who now have one single point of communication with the Economist for finding work and getting paid.

Lystable is a platform that has genuinely changed the way we work.
