Gigstr in Sveriges Radio: Developments in the Swedish Gig Economy
April 24 2018
Gigstr Head of Marketing Alexander Åström was interviewed by Sveriges Radio P4 Blekinge on the ever-increasing trend of self-employment and gigging. Recent numbers show that the work trend is increasing steadily in Sweden. In Swedish state Blekinge it increased by an impressive 129% last year. Alexander explained the trend as the millennial generation’s preferred way of working, where the worker takes on projects, temporary jobs, part time jobs and add hoc tasks in order to be able to tailor their workweek to a larger extent than traditional 9-5 workers.
