Work, work, work, work, work. That’s the name of the game.
Gone are the days of being shamed for moonlighting. The new standard way of living is all about making as much as you can and pursuing every opportunity. With skyrocketing rent, food costs, and high inflation, workers are doing what they feel they need to in order to survive. This means exploring more side gigs, side hustles, and taking on contract work to fill the gaps.
The arrangement may seem like a slam dunk for employees, but will organizations be open to employees who engage in polyworking and what could potentially be at risk if they do? In this post, we’ll explore the meaning of polyworking, and its implications for employers below.What is Polyworking?
Polyworking is simply when an individual holds more than one full-time job at a time (usually remotely - but not always). A person may work as a Customer Success Specialist from 9am -2pm, for example, and then work as an HR Assistant from 3pm - 9pm. Or this person is working a variety of part time gigs in place of one major full-time job.
