There has been a lot of buzz in the media lately about the gig economy. The Intuit 2020 report states that 34% of Americans are working independently in the gig economy and in the European Union, independent workers are the fastest growing group in the labour market.

Closer to home, Malaysia’s Employees Provident Fund (EPF) reported that Malaysia’s gig economy, also known as the open-talent economy, has grown 31% this year, surpassing the traditional workforce.

“In Conversation With” will discover the latest trends of the gig economy in Malaysia’s metropolitan areas, what aspects of the gig economy matter to your business and what strategic shifts your company should consider. This forum will also discuss if Malaysia’s current workforce is ready to make room for such new trends while highlighting risks and opportunities for both employers and employees.
