In the knowledge economy, labor has become a complex process. Thus, flexibility came as a response to the traditional labor market rigidities in an attempt to control change and new possible risks, considering the relaxation of labor market regulation, the focusing on human factors, unlocking the potential of knowledge and creative learning as engine of the knowledge-based society. Meanwhile, in the current context of regionalization and globalization of labor markets, effective management of diverse workforce is essential in developing the knowledge economy. In Romania, labor market flexibility is limited, so that opportunities offered by flexible employment are less valued. Flexible forms of employment are insufficiently used in the labor market, considered more as a form of precarious, temporary employment in the absence of a job with a conventional program, more than as a real opportunity, indicating an inefficient management of the employment potential and an inappropriate correlation of labor supply with labor demand.
