Why are 25% of companies surveyed shifting traditional roles to independent contractor jobs? The answers are found in the new Talent Trends research from Randstad Sourceright.
One key driver of this trend is the willingness of workers to consider non-traditional options, with more than 50% expressing that they are more open to contingent work than they have been in the past. Businesses that seek to get on board see value in the idea of an integrated workforce that embraces all labor classifications. In fact, more than three-quarters of those surveyed say that they will likely adopt a total talent management model in the year ahead.
An increase in the use of automation, robots and AI is also helping to drive this trend. Eemployers are considering the advent of non-human talent within their workforces. Industries that are heavily impacted by automation will be the most likely to adopt a total talent strategy that integrates all worker types.
