SIA: employers expect more full-time positions will convert to contingent roles.

December 18, 2017 Rebecca Henderson

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.

More than 60% of those surveyed expect to shift up to one-third of their permanent positions to contingent roles. One reason for this is to better address the challenges of talent scarcity, a factor mentioned by 69% of the survey respondents.

“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.
