Full time Traditional employment is being replaced by gigs and side-hustles. Sometimes it’s out of necessity- the United States is in a slow recovery from a nearly decade-long recession- but other times it is out of a desire to work on your own terms, and Millennials are leading the way. So what does it take to make it in the gig economy?
Millennials tend to want to push the boundaries of traditional work in favor of more flexibility. Sometimes it’s because they don’t want to work the typical nine to five schedule of yesteryear, seeking instead the flexibility to work when it is convenient for them.
Other times it is because they don’t want to be tied down to a cubicle farm and would rather work on vacation so they can take more vacations or work from home so they can cut down on their commute. Studies show that telecommuters are 13% more efficient than their office-bound colleagues, likely due to decreased stress over having to work in the same environment all the time.
