The world of work is transforming before our eyes. The global freelance workforce is growing fast, and digital platforms and marketplaces are linking people with skills to companies looking for skills no matter where in the world they’re located. Talent is universal but the opportunity has previously been limited to big cities – until now. I recently had the honour of sitting down with Barry and Eleanor Matthews from Open-Assembly on their How the Future Works Podcast.
The Open Assembly is a learning resource and consulting marketplace for the future of work and open talent economy. As employment models shift to greater use of freelance talent from open talent expert marketplaces, our expert network of consultants are trained to provide workshops, executive briefings and consulting to help companies transform themselves by creating the right culture and organizational structure to allow for the adoption of new digital tools, processes, and platforms.
Listen in as we talk about the extraordinary growth in podcasting, how it can be a useful tool for promotion and profile-building for freelancers and how to find enough motivation and inspiration to record every day. They also pick apart the recent changes in IR35 and what it will mean to UK freelancers if and when it is executed.
