Freelancers are here to stay

January 20th, 2010

Daily Finance does a bit of a post how the state of play has changed in the last two years:ย Freelance Nation: Why Permanent Jobs may not come back.

In Micro Businesses I mention that we are finally seeing the shift towards Charles Handy idea of the Doughnut Organisation.

This just reinforces it somewhat. ย The shakedown has forced organisations to restructure how they run and it makes sense for them to acquire Freelancers to fill the gaps. ย On the flipside Freelancers get greater control, pick their projects and keeps them on their toes. ย A win/win.

It is sad that it has come about the way it has (through deep cuts during the recession) but I do think it’s for the best.

The future is in micro (even atomic) businesses…
