Questions Include:

  • How has the gig economy changed the ways many companies manage their people and culture? 
  • Follow up: In your book The Inside Gig, you offer a new talent operating model that helps companies apply learnings from the gig economy but inside the organization. The idea is to break jobs into a series of projects and then offer projects to employees, beyond the scope of their day-to-day role, so that they can choose what work interests them and contribute to projects that help them learn, grow, and leverage all of their skills and interests. Tell us more.
  • How much time should employees get, say per week, to work on these internal gigs? How can employers ensure the 'day job' is still getting done?
  • DEI is a critical topic for most companies today. How would you hope your ideas are helping to facilitate greater equity and inclusion in the workplace?
