Gig Economy… acceleration is on!
Covid has pushed the button for radical change in the use of talent & Human Resources.
Laws will have to change and accommodate temping, project based employment, removal of age bar etc in all areas of employment – blue & white collar; from back room to board room; services, agriculture, industry; old economy or new;
Beyond minimum wage & some Pension / healthcare provisions the laws should allow a flexible hiring & contraction of work force.
@ #contractmanager CEO works very well in certain areas & I have been on such roles very successfully since 2014.
Start ups & their investors want experienced Corporate leaders to help set up the organisation that can handle the scale as the business grows rapidly. Co founders May also require mentorship / coaching & handholding to build their leadership skills quickly.
Similarly Businesses in transition and Legacy businesses need turnaround shamans and a variety of specialists for short duration projects. Transition contracts roles are perfect – flat payouts; clear timelines & outcomes; deliver and move.
Something like Prop 22 (Proposition 22 a law recently introduced in California) is the need of the day in India too.
Love to hear about your views.
