What is the gig economy and how can it benefit from employee scheduling software? Well, the gig economy is a workforce in which full-time staff is less common than temporary positions for short term engagements like independent contractors, seasonal employees, and workers on short term projects such as live events. Over the next few years, it is anticipated that well over 40% of all workers will be short-term employees only.
Advances in technology, especially those platforms that help with labor process automation such as employee scheduling software, have been helping the gig economy grow because it allows organizations to simplify the process of organizing, scheduling, communicating with and managing the people they need – especially in the live event industry where processes are typically manual, fragmented, and complex. Industry professionals also rely on employee scheduling software to assist with meeting compliance goals and provide in-depth data and analytics that lead to better business decisions.
For companies drawing labor forces from the gig economy, simplification and growth are two major goals. LASSO gives event companies the tools they need to eliminate frustrating and tedious manual processes.
