Millions of people around the world are waving goodbye to the traditional cubicle work life and saying hello to independent work. In a 2016 report by the McKinsey Global Institute (MGI), we can explore the numbers and the reasons why so many people are making the switch.
Why are millions of people defying the norm of a full-time office job? Recent research shows that “independent work” is increasing within the working-age population. MGI’s 2016 global survey showed that up to 30 percent of the working-age population earn income through independent work. Veryable offers employment in this category as on-demand labor, where operators get to choose what work opportunities to bid on.
On-demand labor offers freedom and flexibility to the worker. The autonomy experienced with on-demand labor is one of the key reasons millions of people have been joining this labor pool. This allows for individuals to manage their personal work-life balance in the way you prefer. Operators choose the work and hours they want, and get paid quickly. Short-term opportunities offer an opportunity for workers to break up the mundane and gain experience with several different businesses.
Better yet, this kind of work is truly for everyone and anyone. The MGI survey reports that this workforce is incredibly diverse in terms of age, gender, education, and income level. You have a place here.
Although people choose on-demand labor for different reasons, the study reveals that those who choose to earn their primary living as an independent worker are highly satisfied with their work. Not ready to commit to the lifestyle? The study also reports that those who are classified in the casual earner category, meaning they supplement their primary income with this kind of work, are also more satisfied than those with traditional jobs. Higher satisfaction includes categories such as overall work life, hours worked, independence, atmosphere, empowerment, creativity, flexible hours, and recognition.
With a wide variety of viable choices of work opportunities on Veryable’s online platform, job satisfaction will only continue to rise. Using an on-demand labor model such as Veryable could allow you to earn the supplemental income you’ve been hoping to improve your finances. Additionally, the study reveals that millions of workers in traditional jobs desire to make the switch to independent work. What’s holding you back?
