In a survey commissioned by PeoplePerHour in May of 2015, we found that the average waste or spare capacity per day was 1.9hrs per person.

 

The on-demand economy enables individuals to monetize this wasted time with an average uplift in earning potential of £6,297.17 per annum

 

 

In 2014 we estimated that freelance workers contributed approximately 103bn to the UK economy in collective sales, around 3.1% of total private sector turnover and 2.8% of UK GDP

 

We predict that by 2020, 1 in 2 people will be working in a Freelance capacity in both the United States and the United Kingdom.
