What do an Uber driver, a scrum master, a freelance writer and a contract project manager/product owner have in common? The answer is that they are potentially 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. 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 favour of short-term support based on immediate needs.
Those participating in the gig economy call themselves freelancers,
independent professionals and contract workers. 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.
