In this video Arjen van Witteloostuijn discusses his research presented at the Annual Global Research Workshop on Freelancing and Self-Employment 2016.
His research examines the opportunity for creating beneficial relationships between freelancers and their hiring organisations.
Van Witteloostuijn draws on a survey sample of 928 useable Dutch freelance responses to illustrate that there is a two-way mutual benefiting relationship between the two sides.
His key findings point that an organisational fit can generate a win-win relationship enabling freelancers to grow in their progressive career while further enriching the knowledge structure of the hiring organisation by sharing their practical experience.
