ABOUT THE 2021 RESEARCH

 
12% of survey complete.
The 2021 Gig Mindset Research Phase Two - 30 months after the 2018 research
Research conducted by Jane McConnell. For more information, contact Jane by email or Twitter @netjmc (direct messages are open).
You are welcome to participate in 2021 even if you did not take part in 2018.

What is the gig mindset?
The term “gig mindset” refers to the attitudes and behaviors of people who, even though they are salaried employees in an organization, approach their work more as if they were independent freelancers. They experiment, take opportunities to work with different people across the organization, work openly sharing in "work out loud" mode. They take responsibility for their initiatives, dare to challenge status quo and do a lot of networking internally and externally.
Their attitudes and behaviors contrast with employees who work with a “traditional mindset” where the approach to work is influenced by defined roles, hierarchy and established procedures. 
 
What are the objectives of this research?
The first phase of the gig mindset research took place in 2018. The purpose of this second phase is to identify changes in how individuals and organizations are working today, in early 2021. We will also look at changes due to the pandemic.

The questions cover:
1. Individual behaviors, habits and attitudes
2. Organizational work cultures, practices and priorities
3. Pandemic:
impact on individual work and organizations
4. Future outlook

Can I use this survey internally? 
Group Snapshot
If you want to invite people from your own organization or from a professional community, you can create a group by choosing a one-word identifier (a group tag). The tag can be the name of your organization or any other word you wish.
You then share the link with as many people in your group as you wish. Each person fills in the group tag at the end of the survey. You can use this feature to see the global results for a department, a company, a community, etc.
Ideally, you would have at least 10 people. Get in touch if you have questions.
Data Privacy

By participating in the survey, you give your consent to have your answers consolidated with data collected from other participants. The data is anonymous and consolidated. This makes it impossible to relate responses to any individual person or organization. 
At the end of the survey, we ask for your name and organization, but you can leave it blank if you prefer.
We request your email, which is used only to communicate with you about the research and to send you a copy of your responses or the final report, as you wish.
We ask demographic questions at the end in order to correlate data into meaningful trends. Individual responses are never identifiable.
