Written by EO Executives on Feb 21, 2018

Whether you are new to Interim Management or are a highly experienced Interim Manager, with the emergence of the gig economy you may have noticed that the competition for assignments is greater than ever before.

This competition combined with the demand for Interim Executives demonstrates that more organisations are seeing the value of hiring an Interim.

Considering that these discussions have primarily been with career interims, in the truest sense that they operate through their own Limited Companies and typically are engaged at times of change / transformation, I wondered if we would have seen any significant changes as to how assignments are sourced with the emergence of the ‘gig economy’ and global rise in social media?
