Millennials they are known as a unique demographic, especially when it comes to the workforce. Many of them have different standards than their parents and grandparents, which makes it difficult to attract human resources departments. A significant decisive factor for Millennials when choosing a new job is the ability of the position to promote change through the promotion of corporate responsibility. According to a PWC report, entitled "Millennials at Work Reshaping the Workplace", over 50 percent of millennials would undertake a job cut for positions that align with their values.
Blockchain businesses seem to recognize the needs of millennials. According to Vlad Dobrynin of Humans.net, a blockchain company, "Looking for self-fulfillment and new money-making opportunities, millennials are turning to online work platforms, but these are far enough to guarantee a quick search and above all, successful for the job … the goal is to create a bank of resources for people and businesses without intermediaries and taxes – transforming the way we live, work and relate to one another. Another in the blockchain era ".
Nowadays, blockchain and cryptocurrency platforms are implementing what are called "bounty campaigns", which provide new standards and ethics in a decentralized system. Bounty campaigns allow outsourcing tasks, the workforce is cheaper than a traditional one and risks are limited in terms of regulation and bureaucracy.
The next question that arises is whether freelancing is an option even for millennials in the new system. It could be a fundamental option, especially in light of the fact that millennials tend to prefer a "life attitude" instead of a "life full of work". A freelance career allows to combine work-life, flexibility and greater control over the funds they earn. In addition, freelancers tend to be more versatile in terms of skills they learn and apply, making them a privileged option for new opportunities.
However, this does not necessarily mean that the freelancer is not without his project. Many of the projects are available only on limited platforms that modify the high rates for user participation. Moreover, freelancing is not always consistent in every project, making it difficult for freelancers to continue and maintain a constant line of work. Another problem is the scams: there is a lack of regulatory protection in the industry, which can be dangerous not only for freelancers, but also for the customer.
Many turn to distributed leger technology as a means of changing the system. Technology is already used to generate a more ethical work environment. And many are seeing that it could also help freelance projects and the needs and expectations of Millennials. Technology can be able to promote factors such as trust, reduce costs, improve creativity and improve working conditions for millennia and customer situations. At the end of the day, only time will tell if this will be a real option in the future that millennials will be able to implement in their job search, freelance career and beyond.
