Beware: the Gig Economy is disrupting how organizations are doing business

Freelancers & consultants are now dictating how your organizations grows.

By 2020, 40% of Americans will be freelancers. That’s 60 million people who have decided to take their destiny in their hands, and as they do so, they will change the rules of the marketplace as we know it today.

How will they disrupt our business world? Simple.

We can share from experience that we’ve seen a harsh wake up for some organizations.

One SEO consultant declined to work with an organization because he didn’t want to go through the paperwork and pre-selection process. He had enough customers to pick and choose who he wanted to work with. Another time, we saw a copy-writer refuse to comply with the way the company wanted to pay her: 60 days net.

So beware, companies and leaders­-you are no longer in control.
