Balancing Side Hustles and Day Jobs: How Employers Can Support Their Workers' Creative Ventures
Everyday I’m Jugglin
The pandemic has accelerated a shift towards a new job model as employees increasingly reject the belief that a single job can satisfy all their needs, according to studies.
Instead, people are opting for building a portfolio of simultaneous roles to create their careers.
As side hustles become increasingly normalised, employers who reject them altogether may find it difficult to hold their ground.
A better path is to recognise the potential benefits that side hustles can bring to employees and businesses. Providing flexibility and understanding can:
Help employees pursue their passions
Create higher job satisfaction
Upskill employees faster
With the help of today's gig economy (think Uber, DoorDash, Airbnb), it's easier than ever for employees to create a side hustle quickly and easily, often without any additional investment beyond a smartphone app and the car or spare bedroom they already have.
Employees are becoming free agents, relying increasingly on themselves to carve out a meaningful and rewarding professional life.
In 2021, 34% of Americans reported having a side hustle, and over 60 million people planned to start one. Side hustles provide extra income, new learning opportunities, and more enjoyable work.
While encouraging side hustles, employers should establish clear boundaries and expectations to avoid any conflicts of interest that may arise. They can also provide resources and support for employees with side hustles, such as training, mentorship, and networking opportunities.
Here are some tips for balancing your employees' desire for personal fulfillment with the needs of your business.
Encourage Transparency Encourage your employees to be open and upfront about their side hustles and creative projects.
Set Realistic Goals and Boundaries Help your employees set realistic goals and boundaries for their side hustles and creative projects.
Foster a Culture of Creativity Creating a work environment that encourages creativity can help your employees thrive both in their day job and in their side hustles.
Provide Opportunities for Growth Offer opportunities for your employees to develop new skills and pursue their passions within the context of their day job.
In conclusion, side hustles and creative projects can be a great way for employees to explore their passions and develop new skills. As an employer, it's important to support your employees' personal pursuits while also ensuring that they are able to maintain their productivity and focus on their day job. By encouraging transparency, setting realistic goals and boundaries, fostering a culture of creativity, and providing opportunities for growth, you can create an environment that supports your employees' full potential and helps them CRUSH it in all aspects of their professional lives.
