Virtual Dinner Meeting: How to Thrive in the Covid-19 Gig Economy?

Join us for a special workshop on How to Thrive in the (Covid-19) Gig Economy? presented by Michael Nir

With the impact of Covid-19 upon us the Gig economy is accelerating – do not be left behind!

In this talk you get to practice and develop critical skills to thrive in the Gig economy!

What do an Uber driver, a scrum master, a freelance designer, and a contract project manager / product owner have in common? The answer is that they are all a part of the gig economy.

One of the fastest growing trends in employment is a move away from full-time contracts. Instead, both employers and workers are pursuing alternative arrangements, including temporary or project-based contracts.

It wasn’t that long ago that people graduating from college or university would go searching for a permanent position with regular pay periods, consistent hours and employee benefits. However, the proportion of such jobs is shrinking.

The emergence of new digital technologies has meant a shift in companies’ employment strategies. They are looking to reduce their costs by hiring less full-time staff in favor of short-term support based on immediate needs.

On the flip side, peoples’ preferences regarding job structures are also changing. Workers have realized that contracting out their services to a mix of companies allows them flexibility in determining the amount of time they spend working and the types of work they do.

Where the two sides meet is where we find the gig economy.

Those participating in the gig economy call themselves freelancers, independent professionals, contract workers and independent contractors. It’s easy to think of this group as a bunch of millennials looking to escape the traditional 9 to 5, but among those participating in the gig economy are experienced nurses, project managers, scrum masters, agile coaches, engineers and marketing consultants.
