It’s official – the traditional way of work is no longer the only way to work. As our world changes and technology becomes as prolific as ever, the way we work has experienced a significant overhaul to create new opportunities for workers and businesses alike.
Our traditional idea of the economy has revolved around employees working for one employer over a long period of time in close proximity to their residential location. However, the emergence of a new type of economy has transformed our traditional perceptions of work – and it provides all Australians with the opportunity to find work they are passionate about.
Here at CrowdShare, we firmly believe that the gig economy is the new economy. This new way of working offers freelancers and brands the opportunity to connect through short-term employment without any geographical boundaries. In a world that is more globalised and interconnected than ever before, the gig economy has provided a valid employment alternative to the traditional labour market.
What exactly does the gig economy offer Australians? Freelancers will be able to seize control over the work they complete – they get to choose projects they are passionate about and how they want to do them. The gig economy can also offer freelancers an alternative income stream that will help them build their wealth. For brands, the gig economy offers the unmissable opportunity to access a huge pool of talent outside their geographical area. Brands will open themselves up to specialised talent that can immense value to their company’s success without having to worry about providing office space or expense reimbursements.
The gig economy provides a win-win for both freelancers and brands, giving Australians the opportunity to discover the power of meaningful work in this thriving new working world.
