The future of work

There are indications that freelancing will become so integral to business that a new term will probably have to be coined for it Bhanu Venkatesh chucked a lucrative 9-to-5 job as an advertisement professional after 17 years to turn freelancer. Flexibility and freedom were factors that drew her to freelancing; and the trade-off would be a fat pay cheque. She was however pleasantly surprised to discover that freelancing delivered a fatter pay packet. Agreed, there are certain professions that lend themselves to freelancing - advertising is certainly one of them.

Because it is required!

When you are in a job, what do you dread about, the most? Not getting long leaves! The flexibility - like a switch that allows you to work on and off. A permanent job will never give both of them.

How else do I go for a Himalayan base camp trek OR a 3-month wildlife photography course and hold on to a job as well!? A platform like Workflexi is more relevant now than ever before!
