Some employees can work 9am to 5pm, five days a week. Others are available on evenings and weekends. But in today’s talk, filmed at the TEDSalon in London, entrepreneur Wingham Rowan describes another type of worker -- one who has a highly unpredictable schedule.
“Think of someone who has a recurring but unpredictable medical condition, somebody who’s caring for a dependent adult, or a parent with complex childcare needs -- their availability for work can be such that it’s ‘ few hours today’ and ‘Maybe I can work tomorrow, but I don’t if and when yet,’” says Rowan.
