Do you have a gig mindset?

I’m researching the gig mindset. I do NOT mean external gig workers or freelancers or members of what is commonly called the gig economy. I mean salaried people who work inside organizations, but behave in ways similar to external freelancers.

I wrote about how I see the gig mentality growing inside organizations. I’m interested in talking with people who have behaviors in their workplace that lean more to the gig mindset column  than to the traditional mindset column.

  1. How does the gig mindset differ from a traditional approach to work?
  2. Is it just a question of nuance, of degree?
  3. Are there real, meaningful differences?
  4. If so, what does it mean for people and for organizations?

I opened a short survey on Survey Monkey. It is completely anonymous, never asking for your name nor that of your organization.  It takes 20 minutes at the most. It closes at the end of September.

Here’s the link, and feel free to share it: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/gigmindset

    Thanks Brian. I’ll be in touch very soon.

  3. Hi Jane. I am more of a Gig worker. For #2 however, I do like working with people I know because it takes a long time to REALLY understand someone and how they think, feel and value, which is required for high levels of collaboration. Something to think about for #2.

    Thanks for your thoughtful comment, Bruce. Maybe there’s a way to nuance it.
