Gig economy’s new deal for Silicon Valley’s white-collar workers

Andrew Schwedel, a partner with Bain & Company, calls this “the new deal for talent”.

He says: “The old deal of climbing up the hierarchy — the way you’re rewarded with more titles, perks, and bigger teams to manage — that’s not relevant for the winning companies today.” Instead, younger workers want to set their own schedules and accumulate new skills on their terms.
