The world is seeing a shift toward contingent talent. Workers and employers alike are embracing this trend wholeheartedly.
Randstad Sourceright’s 2022 Talent Trends Report shows that 71% of human capital leaders are shifting previously full-time positions to contingent, project or contract roles. It’s not only a response to economic uncertainty, it’s a move toward more “mutually beneficial interactions.”
Today’s workers want the freedom that freelance work provides. The majority of leaders (86%) are also on board with offering the flexibility and remote work options that people need to be at their best and most productive.
We are at an exciting inflection point for contingent workers as employers continue to struggle with talent scarcity. The past two years forced companies to reexamine what is most important in meeting the needs of their people and the business.
