Freelancers: Common Misconceptions and Workforce Trends
The days of working from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. five days a week, or working for one employer your entire career, are over. Evolutions in technology, industry and corporate dynamics have ushered in a new era of flexible, results-driven employer/employee relationships. Multiple studies have been conducted that show various trends supporting the freelance workforce as well as common misconceptions.
