Introducing the Entrepreneurial Workforce

We’ve been talking about the Entrepreneurial Workforce for about a decade, but it’s never been more important than it has become┬átoday!

THE ENTREPRENEURIAL WORKFORCE …

What is the Entrepreneurial Workforce? It’s a workforce where jobs are defined by:

  • Knowledge
  • Skills
  • Abilities

It’s a workforce where the worker who owns the knowledge, skills, and abilities actually owns the job.

It’s a workforce where the traditional employer owns the “opportunity to work” because the employer needs someone (or many) with a certain set of knowledge, skills, and abilities.

THE VISION …

In the Entrepreneurial Workforce, the employer and the worker are actually partners who work together to solve a problem(s) or meet a challenge(s) that results in a product or service being delivered to another person or group of people.

The Entrepreneurial Workforce brings traditional employers together with qualified workers in a temporary setting. The timeframe could be short-term (days, weeks, or months) or long-term (many years). But both parties have an expectation that it will not last forever. It will last only as long as the “opportunity to work” exists.

JOB SECURITY …

Job security for the entrepreneurial worker is actually very strong. That’s because it is tied to the worker’s knowledge, skills, and abilities rather than being tied to a single “opportunity to work.”

So long as the entrepreneurial worker is flexible (willing to work for multiple employers in a career) and committed to lifelong learning, there is no reason to believe that an entrepreneurial workforce will not enjoy strong job security!

LOOKING AHEAD …

The Entrepreneurial Workforce is an intriguing topic. We’ll have more to share on this subject in future blogs.
