The gig economy has been crucial to tech firms in the past, finding short-term fills for gaps in resources, especially for fast-growth startups on a budget. In a recent article in The Times, an analysis around whether or not the 'gig economy' is proving useful to the day-to-day operations of the business was conducted.
Grounded in some of the research conducted by Boyes Turner in our recent tech agility report, the article went on to outline the ways in which the gig economy is falling short of its original desirability - a cheaper and easier way of bringing in workers on an ad-hoc basis when needed for the business.
Using some of the findings released in our latest report, the article goes on to point out that growing tech businesses are looking to more permanent resources to demonstrate agility, proving greater stability and longevity in an ever-changing working environment.
