DISCUSSION: WORKING OUTSIDE THE OFFICE: PROS AND CONS FOR EMPLOYERS, EMPLOYEES, AND THE CITY

The modernisation of the economy and social life are the consequences of new employment forms in present-day society. With increasing frequency, stable employment, guaranteed income and a permanent workplace are giving way to temporary projects, commissions for completed work and city cafes with internet access. Virtually any problem, from the search for an English tutor to a top manager head-hunting for a large company, can now be solved on online freelancer platforms. How are shareconomy services changing? How should the Russian educational system change and why is it necessary? How is a knowledge-based economy built?
