16/05/2023 Study

The digital age has brought about a major shift in the way people work. Thanks to the rise of the gig economy, more and more people are taking on temporary and flexible jobs that allow them to work on their own terms. From driving for ride-sharing services to picking up odd jobs on food delivery apps, there are endless opportunities for workers to find gigs that suit their skills and schedules.

As the gig economy continues to grow, it raises important questions about the future of work. What if the traditional 9-to-5 office job is no longer the norm? How will businesses adapt to the rise of freelancers, contractors, and gig workers? And what about the financial industry? How will it cater to the unique financial needs of this new wave of independent workers?

These questions are worth exploring, as the gig economy continues to redefine the way we work. While the rise of the gig economy has provided many workers with newfound flexibility and independence, it has also created new challenges for businesses and financial institutions to address.
