Freelance has changed the nature of work and the lives of workers. Beyond the opportunities, the gig worker faces new financial and emotional strains. Viewed holistically, the gig economy presents the challenges to how workers live their lives during and outside of work.

 

After weeks of primary qualitative and quantitive research, a sharper picture of the freelance economy comes into focus. We identified 3 key insights that define the work ahead.

 

Freelance makes it harder to find cross-generational mentorships. - Freelancing kills collaboration, making it more difficult to share knowledge and build new skills. - Older workers have industry experience but lack social currency
