The Right Direction

The recession of 2008-2009 led to many people losing their jobs, companies, homes and more; however, it also resulted in a surge of self-employed workers, which compensated for nearly 40% of unemployment.Self employed can be anything from a “white van man”, freelance writers or web designers or people opening up their own online stores or beauty services.  You might be surprised to learn that 1 in 7 workers are now self-employed, as the number of self employed workers has increased by 573,000 since the recession – and the employment trend is showing no signs of stopping any time soon.

Slow Train

According to the Office of National Statistics (ONS), rail journey times of 60 to 90 minutes are taking their toll on commuters; therefore, many employees are looking at home employment options, as a result – showing that UK citizens are becoming more entrepreneurial than ever before.  Working from home is becoming increasingly easier, too, as companies are becoming more and more flexible, offering a variety of freelance opportunities.

Self Employment

The ONS also reported that there are now 395,000 more people in UK employment, with 273,000 working for firms or public sector organisations – which means that 150,000 are self employed.  Home employment is therefore helping keep British citizens in employment, whilst also creating more businesses, preventing UK residents accumulating debt and increasing competition in the global market.
