The gig economy is here to stay. Intuit estimates that by 2020, as many as 40 percent of Americans will be contingent, or "gig" workers. Gig workers can be freelancers, independent contractors, or any other outsourced employees who are hired on a per-project basis.
Some of these contingent workers choose to work outside of a payroll system either as full-time freelancers or as part-time workers who supplement their income by picking up gigs. Others take contingent jobs out of necessity even though they would prefer full-time employee status.
Using CommandHound to drive accountability in the workplace does not just require implementing the software. It involves a culture change as well, which has lasting positive ramifications for any organization.
We often hear that we should keep our work life separate from our personal life to make things easier. However, with the advent of constant and relentless connectivity we find ourselves mixing personal and work activities more and more.
We often engage with our clients in the early stages of a CommandHound-driven accountability initiative to help them define how to best use CommandHound in conjunction with their existing operational systems.

We live in a world that measures everything. A world that tells us that metrics are important. However, we often fall on the trap of measuring and reporting on things that are either not useful or not used by anybody.
