In today’s gig economy, it is common for workers to have two or three jobs to make ends meet. Some professionals prefer the flexibility, freedom and lack of office politics that come with being an entrepreneur or independent contractor, while others become contract workers out of financial necessity.
In this vlog, APU management professor Dr. Marie Gould Harper discusses the top issues facing executives and employers in a gig economy, including the need for organizations to employ innovation and adaptability in order to keep up with their competition. She also covers the challenges that companies face by using underemployed workers and how underemployment impedes organizational creativity.
