The COVID-19 pandemic has completely changed the face of employment across the world, with millions of employees having undertaken freelance work within the past 12 months. As reported by The Economic Times 64% of C-suite executives prefer to continue with remote working structures. Tighter restrictions in some areas coupled with the ease of hiring and lower expense imposed by freelance workers are the main reasons for this phenomenon. From an employee’s perspective, freelancing is a way for families to make ends meet in tough times, with the International Labour Organisation (ILO) reporting that millions of workers have lost their jobs owing to the pandemic. The arrival of vaccinations holds promise. But signs abound that freelancing could continue to hold its footing in the workforce across an array of industries.
