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 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, has been helping the gig economy grow because it allows Event Service organizations to simplify the process of scheduling, communicating with and managing the crew they need. 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.
