Challenge Movir PARTIAL APPROVAL - Free

Work is changing. We are seeing more and more people that are choosing to become independent contractors. Take for example the Gig economy (Uber & Deliveroo). Unlike employees, independent contractors do not work regularly for an employer but work as required. That also means that they are responsible for their own health & insurance. Movir is specialized in disability insurance for independent contractors and is looking for ways to keep people healthy at work. How do we keep this group of independent contractors, that is becoming bigger every year, healthy so that disability insurance remains affordable for all independent contractors.
