The gig economy has changed expectations, according MetLife’s 15th Annual U.S. Employee Benefits Trend Study.
Employees do not see themselves staying in one job for very long, so flexibility about when and how they work has become an outright necessity. 51% of employees said they are interested in contract or freelance work as opposed to a full-time, salaried job. Today the number of employees looking to be in their same job in 12 months is just 61%.
Portable benefits and recognition of evolving lifestyles are just a couple of the trends employers will need to understand and respond to in order to adapt to the new workforce conditions.
