A joint-event brought to you by Brandt International and Sorga Innovation

Welcome to the Gig Economy where an army of workers called “giggers” are creating their own destiny as companies like Uber, AirBnb, Ola, Zomato, Swiggy and others are using technology to disrupt industries. This shift claims to focus on the worker where one gets to choose his/her own work hours in a hi-tech frontier, departing from the usual 9 to 5 jobs!

Registration starts at 8:00am
Admission: Free!

Come find out about the evolving nature of work and how the new generation see their careers as they balance their own needs. Musicians, photographers, writers, truck drivers and tradespeople have traditionally been gig workers. The gig economy suddenly became much more than a curiosity during the aforementioned financial crisis. With recent turbulent economic times, facing unemployment or underemployment, many workers picked up temporary engagements wherever they could. These gigs had to be flexible. Some workers were able to hold down a full-time or part-time job but needed to shore up their income. Others cobbled together an income by working a few gigs at once. The fact is that is it growing and it is going to be a big part of the workforce now and beyond.

For existing organizations, the key question has been how to adapt to this changing workforce - be it from the HR perspective or from an employer/employment angle.

Come and learn about what the Gig-Economy is all about and how it has changed the talent marketplace.

Talent is being marketed much differently than before. Like the many on-demand services or as-a-Service offerings available today, skilled workers are also now on-demand. For organizations, we need to evolve to embrace this new change and to grow. Come listen to industry experts including a panel session made up of industry and organizational leaders and HR professionals.
