The Gig Economy: Is it right for you? Is it right for your business?

March 13, 2019 - 1:00 pm EST

Opportunities for work in Canada's gig economy are rising as a growing number of workers shun traditional employment in favour of contract and freelance work that allows them to try their hands at different positions to find the fit that is right for them.

While the gig economy allows many workers to obtain work easily, and freelance in their pj’s if they want, the focus on short-term contracts is eliminating many traditionally-based employment positions. It’s also impacting many company’s institutional memory, hurting those organization’s effectiveness.
