Today Cake & Arrow published the latest installment in an ongoing investigation into the insurance-related needs of Gig Economy workers and innovative solutions to meet them. With a new look at how the pandemic is reshaping the workforce,  “Gigged Out: An Emerging Workforce in Pursuit of Stability”  synthesizes years worth of Cake & Arrow’s proprietary research insights and expertise, positioned alongside recent data and trends to offer a new perspective on:

  • How the Gig Economy can be viewed as a microcosm for understanding the future of work
  • What changes in the workforce spawned by the pandemic can tell us about the future of work
  • How private industry can respond to a workforce transformation that is already fast underway

“The Gig Economy has long been treated as a niche market to be catered to rather than a megatrend that is fast shaping an emerging workforce,” said Josh Levine, CEO and Founder of Cake & Arrow. “Our fresh perspective on the Gig Economy explores how the pandemic has both accelerated and brought into focus a realignment of the workforce that has been underway for more than a decade under the guise of the gig work. We believe that to innovate for the Gig Economy is to innovate for the future and now is the time for the insurance and financial services industries to act.”
