The latest Talent Trends Report from Randstad Sourceright validates the shift SIA has been seeing with employers transitioning towards contingent and freelance roles.
A clear majority (71%) of surveyed human capital leaders say they’re shifting more work to contingent roles to get the job done this year, the highest in the report’s history. And 25% said that they had already converted some previously full-time roles to contingent positions in 2021.
While over 84% of survey respondents said they are more focused on the talent experience than ever before, hiring challenges still manage to negatively impact their bottom line despite this shift. The Great Resignation has tipped the balance in favor of prospective and current employees.
“It’s clear that businesses need to get creative with their recruitment strategies,” says Mike Smith, global CEO of Randstad Sourceright. He stresses the need for companies to “recharge, refresh and renew” their talent strategies to meet both candidate and employee expectations.
