NOX Consulting in the Gig Economy

 
 

1.     Independent contractors should be seen and be as accepted as other forms of work - you should not feel that you are falling behind in social safety nets to be chosen that path. 

2.     IT industry is far ahead when it comes to hiring consultants, but other industries have to realizing that they need to be more flexible in how to solve their supply needs to be competitive in the future. 

3.     The consulting industry must take responsibility for those who chose this way of work and live. Help them with tools, network and work towards a transparent industry where we don't lock people to a specific agency.
