How the gig economy is changing employment

How the gig economy is changing employment | Global Contingent Workforce | Scoop.it
The advent of the gig economy has brought fundamental changes to the way in which we access goods and services and turned traditional business models on their head. Denis Pennel considers its impact on employment and the likely implications for the future of work.

The rise in digital platforms is increasingly replacing face-to-face transactions. Businesses can now sell their wares at the press of a button and attract customers from around the world. All of this with very few staff and certainly without a classic salesforce or local office. Today’s hyper-networked world means companies can create a direct connection with customers through their online portals. Efficient systems ensure high levels of quality and customer satisfaction and we can all buy goods and services in real time, 24 hours a day, seven days a week. The gig economy impacts all business sectors – from retail to media and from finance to accommodation. Taxi drivers are being “Uberised”, bookshops “Amazonised”, hotels “Airbnbised”, travel agencies “Bookingised”…


A host of B2B and B2C services are available without ever leaving the house. The process is faster, easier and very often cheaper. And it doesn’t stop there. Not only has the gig economy eroded established business sectors it has also created a host of new business models and opportunities: eBay, where people can trade second-hand goods; Zilok, where people can rent all sorts of things; Peerby, where you can borrow items from neighbours; and TaskRabbit, where you can hire somebody by the hour to complete your tax form or walk your dog.
