The term gig was originally used to loosely refer to an “engagement”. A gig in the growing gig economy means a project or task for a specific period of time. Unlike traditional contracts where organizations engaged with providers/suppliers on a long term basis, gigs are normally very short term. The gig economy is mainly based on people doing temporary tasks and separate pieces of work.
