A VITAL COMPONENT OF THE FUTURE OF WORK THAT IS CREATING OPPORTUNITIES, FACILITATING GROWTH AND DRIVING THE SWEDISH ECONOMY.
The platform economy is rapidly becoming part of the regular economy. We want to ensure that the benefits are nurtured and promoted, while negative elements are addressed and improved through cooperation between all relevant stakeholders. Facilitating a dialogue between public authorities, government, business, trade unions and the public will ensure that we create a platform economy which benefits everyone.
Barriers to the platform economy
An outdated view of the Swedish labour market has a role to play, as does the need for clarity on what constitutes an “employer” in Sweden today. Equally important in order for the sector to grow, all stakeholders need to address issues associated with building trust, confronting legitimate problems of the past and improving the reputation of the platform economy, along with access to finance and social security for workers in the platform economy.
Opportunities that the platform economy creates
The platform economy is creating new forms of employment as well as linking employers and employees more quickly and efficiently. The platform economy can also be a vehicle which helps more young people, seniors and immigrants into the job market. It also allows people to access new revenue streams, as well as foster competition and drive innovation.
Many organisations who want to help co-create and shape the platform economy are joining our stakeholder initiative. Platform Economy is open to everyone from government departments and companies, to trade organisations, NGOs, cities, consultancies and individuals.
