Community Contributions for Employability Problems

The GigTeams are the smaller units built on a community approach to solve the youth career problems. The engagement of a small group of professionals say a size of 4 to 8 people, lead by a Gigleader as the unit to build its own economy in the Gig Economy marketplace can solve multiple issues in the society. We believe in the organic transformation of the individual’s attitude towards education and employment.

Here we have picked up certain indicators from the India Ministry for Skill Development and Entrepreneurship. The state minister MSDE has tweeted “Every year 2 crore people reach the employment age. It’s our duty to ensure that they have a proper livelihood. With the latest technological advancements, we are trying to build a skilled workforce.” But, the global reports like the one from pwc highlights need for collaboration and engagement from governments, organisations and society at large. Further, Governments, organisations and society should work together to develop a responsible approach and policies that govern the impact of technology and automation on jobs – including a clear discussion on the ethics of AI. Governments should engage with organisations developing the use of robotics and AI at all stages of policy making, to create a pool of thought leaders with a deep understanding of the interplay between technology and its effect on society.

We are building hundreds of such GigTeams at Co-Working spaces, Campuses, District Places and the virtual groups to connect the work from professionals. This is a Social Entrepreneurship model for inclusive growth of aspiring entrepreneurs, independent professionals, employment seekers, and the fresh innovative minds.
