The Human Cloud - How Online Platforms are Disrupting the Recruitment Industry

Jim Riley

23rd November 2015

A terrific short discussion here by the FT Business team which explores the rapid development of online platforms which enable the demand and supply of labour to be matched in new ways.

The so-called "human cloud" is similar to the concept of the sharing economy in that providers of human skills can find and be matched with those who are looking for those skills.
