About the topic
There used to be a time when the only way you could earn a living was by working full-time for an organization. Today the traditional employee-employer relationship has dramatically changed and is no longer static. Lifetime and long-term employment are all but dead. Instead we are seeing shorter tenures, portfolio workers, and the rise of freelancers. Today the workplace has become much more dynamic and fluid. Organizations are able to tap into freelancers to do pretty much anything, anytime and these same freelancers are no longer willing to commit to a single organization full-time. This challenges the very foundation of work and organizations are struggling to figure out how to operate in this new world where talent is fluid and always shifting. In this keynote Jacob will explore what the freelancer economy is, how it’s disrupting traditional employment models, and what organizations should do to adapt.
