The widescale move towards a new model for work continues to develop. People increasingly want a portfolio career or to be running their own business.

Large, corporate employers are struggling to compete with start-ups in the “war for talent”, claims research just published.  A study of more than 1,000 people working in companies with over 500 employees, by startup job site Tyba, found that 86% want to leave their jobs, with almost two-thirds saying that working in a start-up would be ‘their dream job’.

Factors including ‘team morale’, ‘creative and dynamic environment’, ‘a sense of purpose’ and ‘the chance to progress your career as the company grows’ were cited as the main benefits of working for a start-up business.

And why wouldn’t you!
