The global gig economy is experiencing exponential growth as technology and changing human behaviour combine to change the way that we all work. But it’s not just transportation-based services such as delivery drivers or ride share drivers. The proliferation of on-demand services and the sharing economy have also created sizeable sub-sectors including professional services, household services and handmade goods and asset-sharing.

One way is to offer on-demand wages; allowing workers to access pay when it’s needed, helping to alleviate income volatility – a major pain point.
The report, ‘Fueling the global gig economy’, explores how the gig economy has changed in recent years and how real-time, card-based disbursements can support a changing workforce.
