One-third of the American workforce is made up of individuals working contracts or short-term assignments known as gigs. And the number of workers ?going gig? is growing. Businesses used to manage every aspect of their operations—from the design of widgets, to their production, to the marketing and sale of widgets, to the installation and maintenance of widgets. Managing every facet of business was often cumbersome and usually very costly. As a result, many business owners began taking a long look at changing the way they were working, got lean, and began outsourcing jobs to specialized partners or employees, which saved them both time and money. As a result, the gig economy was born. During this show, Future of Work host and BMG’s Shelly Kramer and her guest, her partner Eric Vidal, tackle the topic of the gig economy, and how and why it continues to grow. You’ll find a recap of the full show here: Going Gig: The Reshaping of the American Workforce
