Using the gig economy brings many benefits compared to traditional employment, including;
Engage with local and global talent through remote communication
Team up with experts when needed, avoiding wasting staffing funds as well as bypassing the legal obligations associated with recruiting permanent staff
Make the recruitment process faster and easier
Hire a specialist with a specific project in mind rather than ongoing works that may require a range of related skills
Save on traditional advertising
