Did you know the average W-2 employee is working 13 hours per week from a side hustle? From the extraordinary growth of workers pursuing side hustles to how people think about their homes and employee activism, the pandemic has altered and accelerated consumer trends … and they will have a long-lasting effect on HR. For example, one of the major findings from Clicksuasion's 2021 Marketing Survey was that 49% of the US population has some kind of Side Hustle. Instead of frowning upon and discouraging the pursuit of alternative sources of income, how can HR nurture and support these side hustle projects?  Tune in to our podcast and learn more about how side hustles and other consumer trends will shape the future of recruitment, retention, and HR. Our featured guest is Dr. Michael Barbera, Chief Behavioral Officer at Clicksuasion Labs.
