#GigResponsibly – The Rise of NextGen Work

GigResponsibly - The Rise of NextGen Work
These days, people are choosing to work differently. Instead of opting for traditional, full-time, permanent jobs, a growing number of people are looking for alternative ways of working – such as contingent, contract, temporary, freelance, on-demand and platform roles.

The ‘Monday-Friday 9-5 job for life’ has moved on, and much of the jobs growth over the last decade has occurred in non-traditional ways of working. With this trend set to continue, it’s clear that the Next Generation of work will look very different to the past.

With 87% of people saying they are open to NextGen work in the future; it’s clear that businesses need to align their workforce strategies to the changing demands of the people they wish to attract.
