Podcast 13: The Future of Work and the Gig Economy
I once read a derogatory comment from a reader of a journalist's article. Having nothing better to say, this commentator decided to insult the journalist by saying "Go back to freelancing," as if this was some type of insult about her professionalism. This struck a nerve with me.
Even before the COVID-19 outbreak, research was pointing to at least 50% of the workforce being freelance within a decade. The gig economy is a very real part of the future of work. Those who doubt - or mock this - do so to their own detriment.
Studies by ET, McKinsey and others project a significant shift over the next decade.
