Episode 3 | Will the Gig Economy Take Over 9-5 Jobs?



Thank you to everyone who's stopped by to listen! On Episode 3 of #TheFutureOf podcast, we explored the theme question "Will the gig economy take over 9-5 jobs?" with guests Jeremy Shaki, CEO of Lighthouse Labs and Isabelle Duchaine, Director of Operations at the Business/Higher Education Roundtable  “The gig economy [in the U.S.]…is now estimated to be about 34% of the workforce and expected to be 43% by the year 2020.” That was in 2017. For a more concrete picture, Harvard Business Review reported that 150 million workers in North American and Western Europe are engaged as independent contractors.  The host (Prieeyya) leads the conversation around the opportunity for the gig economy in the future of work, how this shift in jobs is affecting talent development and how the gig economy will impact workplace culture and the employer-employee relationship.  If you enjoyed listening, please spread the word!!!  Connect with us!  Prieeyya: instagram.com/prieeyya | https://www.linkedin.com/i
