Daylighting

Some call it the side hustle, others call it the side project, but it’s been coined as “daylighting” – working jobs on the side while at another one. And for young creative professionals, it’s become a way of life. “The slash/slash generation are best described as do-it-all teens and twenty-somethings that undertake multiple careers – often creating brand names for themselves.” While the notion of employees doing their “own thing” at a business can be threatening, it may also be an opportunity for those who manage it responsibly.

How can companies free people in the slash/slash generation from the rigidity of corporate policy?

Can companies accommodate multiple interests and passions to further develop the potential of their employees?

What if they actually allow, or even encourage, “daylighting”?
