What’s Driving the Gig Economy?

Let’s face it…when a whopping 78% of Americans are living paycheck to paycheck, who hasn’t contemplated a driving gig for Uber or Lyft in their spare time to make some additional money? With weekly and even “instant” payments, such income can have a real impact on your budget. But it’s not just millennials driving this trend. Although almost half of all millennials do cobble together a work/life balance with a variety of gigs, high-skilled, project-based labor is redefining how work gets done at large corporations.

In addition to the typical service-based gigs people are utilizing as their so-called side hustles, like ride sharing or renting out your spare bedroom, online start-ups are helping as well: e-commerce sales jumped 15.7% in the 3rd quarter of 2017.¬†With the “on-demand” mindset of streaming content services and 24/7 online shopping from anywhere, it’s no wonder that the same attitude has radically changed the way businesses need to work today as well.
