In this session Tom Barratt will present his research on the emerging gig economy, with a focus on food delivery couriers and consumer understandings of this new form of work. Drawing on interviews with workers and a survey of consumers this event seeks to help make sense of this complex and constantly changing real and digital ecosystem.

Highlighting how both the organisation and operation of these firms is different from 'traditional' direct models of employment, Tom shows how this is changing the HR landscape both for 'gig' and 'non-gig' firms. Further, in showing some of the social implications this form of work is already having in Australia, he shows how consumers can and are shaping employment and HRM practices.

Target Audience

This forum is suitable for HR professionals, specifically in the roles of:
 - Remuneration and Benefits
 - Diversity and Inclusion
 - Workforce planning
 - HR Systems
 - Recruitment and Employment Law

Speaker: Dr Tom Barratt, Lecturer - School of Business and Law, Edith Cowan University
