I have been thinking about this for a while now. As more people work in the gig economy, there are more people who are searching the corners of the internet for healthcare services, retirement accounts, office space, small office services, accounting, etc.
Not only are a lot of these services somewhat complex to analyze and decide on, they seem to change all the time. “Gig employees” are spending too much time on these challenges.
There are a few Web 2.0 style benefits organizers like Namely, and Zenefits who are taking on the ADP’s and Paychex of the world…..but they are still focused on companies.
Who is out there solving the problem of managing these issues for gig economy workers? What company can find a way to give gig-economy workers a simplified means to run their personal “company”?
