THE FREELANCE MOVEMENT
A VITAL COMPONENT OF THE FUTURE OF WORK THAT IS CREATING OPPORTUNITIES, FACILITATING GROWTH AND DRIVING THE ECONOMY
The freelance movement is rapidly becoming an integral part of the regular economy. We want to ensure that the benefits are nurtured and promoted, while negative elements are addressed and improved through cooperation between all relevant stakeholders. Facilitating a dialogue between public authorities, government, business, trade unions and the public will ensure that we create a reality which benefits everyone.
Barriers to the freelance movement
An outdated view of the labour market has a role to play, as does the need for clarity on what constitutes an “employer” today. Equally important in order for the sector to grow, all stakeholders need to address issues associated with building trust, confronting legitimate problems of the past and improving the reputation of freelancing, along with access to finance and social security for flexible workers.
The future of work is creating new forms of employment as well as linking employers and employees more quickly and efficiently. Freelancing can also be a vehicle which helps more young people, seniors and immigrants into the job market. It also allows people to access new revenue streams, as well as foster competition and drive innovation.
Many organisations who want to help co-create and shape the future of work are joining our stakeholder initiative. Freelance Movement is open to everyone from government departments and companies, to trade organisations, NGOs, cities, consultancies and individuals.
