A recent survey by the RSA found that 59 per cent of all UK 'gig workers' were doing professional, creative or administrative tasks, while only 16 per cent were providing driving or delivery services.
Around 15% of the UK workforce is self-employed according to official statistics, the CIPD estimates that 1.3 million people work in the 'gig economy' and the TUC claims that 1 in 10 are in 'precarious work'.
At our first member roundtable generously hosted by HS2 Ltd, we'll be exploring the gig economy and what it means for employers, job-seekers and the future of resourcing.
We'll be discussing
What impact is the gig economy having on resourcing?
Do we need more primary legislation on employment?
Should we be recruiting 'gig workers' differently?
How do we achieve fairness in the gig economy?
