Retail Merchants will be joined by Jason Hamilton, Cofounder & General Manager of Snag Work, to discuss how the “gig economy” is changing the way people view and perform work and how businesses can adapt to the shifting landscape. FEATURED SPEAKER Jason Hamilton, Product & Growth Leader for snag.work THE CHANGING WORKFORCE How people live, work and spend their money has changed dramatically over the past decade, especially with the advent of smartphone technology. The gig economy is growing rapidly – today 27% of the workforce is made up of gig or independent workers and is predicted to grow to 50% in the next 5 years. Technology isn’t the only thing fueling rapid growth, the gig economy is offering workers greater flexibility, freedom and personal fulfillment in their jobs.
