Henley Business School has revealed ground-breaking research into the growing trend of ‘side hustles’ – running a secondary job or business.
The research showed that an incredible 1 in 4 people in the UK are running at least one business project alongside their main day job, contributing an estimated £72billion to the UK economy.
To mark the launch of Henley Business School’s research, a panel discussion with Henley academics and industry thought leaders was held at Henley’s picturesque grounds and attended by journalists from across national, business, economic and trade media titles.
Panellists Emma Jones MBE, Henley’s Professor Bernd Vogel, Metro Bank’s Chief People Officer Danielle Harmer and one of the UK’s most recognisable side-hustlers, rapper and musician Professor Green, led a lively debate on the true impact side hustles have on British businesses and workers, and how the world of work will look in 2030 and beyond.
Following the release of the research, the Mischief team got hustling - securing widespread coverage across national, trade and business publications including the Independent, the i, Daily Mirror, Daily Mail, People Management and Enterprise Nation.
