Wingham Rowan, Project Director of Slivers-of-TimeWorking, discusses technology for business to provide a more flexible schedule in his video for TED Global.
The need for a more flexible work schedule is becoming more prevalent. In his Ted Global video, Wingham Rowan suggests that workers are becoming less able to work the traditional 9 to 5 schedule. Parents need the flexibility to tend to their kids with medical needs as well as their own. He also believes that companies should create a database for as needed workers. For example, a distribution company that has a rush order can refer to the database of available workers to complete the task.
