Why you need to embrace the gig economy
The old ways of working are not working. Established attitudes towards permanent, fixed employment are under fire. The arrival of the much-maligned gig economy in fact signals no less than a social, cultural, and business revolution.
The ideal is to build in some flexibility so that the organisation can offer the opportunity to be a gig worker to those who want it, while maintaining structured employment opportunities for those who prefer the more traditional forms of employment.
