Event description

Description

Event Details:

Join us at East London & Docklands branch for a thought-provoking session during which we'll talk anythig and everything "GIG Economy".

This event focuses on the key strategic and practical implications for HR from the gig economy. The term 'gig economy' has entered common usage but does not have a singly agreed definition. This complicates how HR should respond and address the multiple economic and labour market trends associated with the gig economy. The CIPD (2017) define the gig economy as working practices based on people having non-permanent and fixed hours of work or doing individual, separately paid pieces of work, sometimes mediated through an online platform. The TUC (2019) approximates 4.7 million people are working in the gig economy.

This event will seek to demystify the gig economy and consider the key implications for HR practices and policy. Specifically the event will address through an analysis of global research and case law on the gig economy;

• Career development strategies in the gig economy
• Workforce planning and talent management
• The implications of the IR35 rules for public and private sector companies
• Trade union responses and employee voice in the gig economy

Participants will take away strategic and practical interventions that they can use in their organisations for workforce planning and how organisations and individuals can benefit from the gig economy.
