The Gig Economy is a global mega trend that has grown drastically in the last 5 years. It is predicted that by the year 2020, half of the entire US workforce will work as freelancers. Digitalisation and globalisation are enablers for the Gig Economy, where people choose to be self-employed rather than opting for traditional employment. This applies to everything from finding gigs through apps like Uber and Deliveroo, to building your career by taking on different types of roles at companies.
During this talk, General Assembly in partnership with NOX Consulting, we will discuss the reasons and drivers behind this trend and explore the consequences for companies, individuals and society. In the future, every company will be a tech company. Finding the right tech people will therefore become crucial across all sectors and industries.
Following the talk will be drinks and networking, so plan to stick around and meet other like-minded individuals!
