Social Security Benefits A Boost For Gig Workers, Say Temp Staffing Companies

New Delhi: Temporary staffing companies such as Quess Corp NSE 4.05 % and TeamLease Services NSE -2.35 % said that the measures for the gig, platform and temporary workers in this year’s budget are welcome but their execution will be key.

For gig workers, employers need to maintain a corpus for social security and the execution of this will be key, said Rituparna Chakraborty, executive vice-president of staffing company TeamLease Services.

The introduction of an online platform which will capture all the data about temporary workers is a big positive, said Lohit Bhatia, president of workforce management at staffing company Quess Corp. “Now there will be a clear demarcation about how many are working, what benefits they’re getting – medical allowance, pension, etc.”
