In a survey of more than 700 global C-suite and human capital leaders, Randstad Sourceright’s 2017 Talent Trends research uncovers changing attitudes and approaches to today’s workforce.

“While in the last decade contingent workers have been viewed very differently as compared to full-time positions, today’s companies are welcoming the opportunity to employ a more agile workforce,” said Randstad Sourceright CEO Rebecca Henderson. Those workers might also come from anywhere in the world, according to 74% of leaders.
