Americans are eager to work but no longer for somebody else. The number of Americans working for themselves looks to triple—to 42 million people—by 2020, according to Research Now.

Millennials are driving the freelance trend. Of the 27 million independent workers, 42% will be millennials. The study also finds Americans who already work for themselves are very content to keep doing so, with 97% of them (up from 10%) reporting no desire to return to the traditional workplace. These findings are consistent with Intuit’s 2006 study on the topic.

“Given these trends, companies need to proactively create what I call approved workplace ecosystems that will likely include the corporate campus, home office… or any place with a decent Wi-Fi or 4G signal,” claims Jeremy Neuner, CEO, NextSpace.“A real ecosystem is about more than just a collection of places. It’s about the norms, the culture, and the vibe that knit [us] together,” concludes Neuner.
