The Gig Economy: Why Companies Need to Value Employees for Ideas and Results

Guest: Diane Mulcahy

Oprah-reviewed author, Forbes Top-10 business school lecturer and author of The Gig Economy: The Complete Guide to Getting Better Work, talks about why companies need to value employees for their ideas and results, not time in the office and about her book. The Gig Economy transforms the way we work by disconnecting work from an office. Independent consultants, contractors, and freelancers are judged by their results and output – no matter how, where, or when they are produced – not on the time they spend in their office chair, or whether they work from 9 to 5 every day. 1. What exactly is the gig economy and how did we get here? 2. Is shifting more of the organization’s work to gig work a viable strategy to create strategic advantage for many companies? 3. How do companies get started ? 4. How do companies track results and impact?
