Freelancers, independent contributors, 1099 workers, consultants – they go by many names but all are critical members of the contingent workforce or “gig economy.” Increasingly, it is powering whole industries, representing almost a third of the U.S. workforce with an estimated 50 million people. How has the gig economy grown in the past decade and what is driving this growth? How are other areas of work affected by this trend? And perhaps most importantly, how can leaders and organizations harness the gig economy for the benefit of all? In this Nine to Thrive HR: Deep Dive podcast, we hear from thought leader and practitioner Terri Gallagher, who has spent her career helping the gig economy thrive. Join us as she shares the most effective strategies to manage this crucial population.
