The Impact of Behavioral and Economic Drivers on Gig Economy Workers

How do workers in the gig economy make important decisions like how many hours to work in a week or which days to work? Those questions are important not only for employees, but for the company as well. A new report at Wharton looks at how businesses can work with flexible scheduling, and determine what types of benefits and other incentives to get the most positive results for the employees and for the company. Host Dan Loney talks with lead author Gad Allon, Professor of Operations, Information and Decisions, and the Director of the Management and Technology Program at the Wharton School, to learn more about the report findings in Knowledge@Wharton.
