Did you know? According to a report released by BLS in 2017, nearly 16.5 million people
in the United States have contingent jobs. That’s 10.3 percent of the total labor force of the country that works on a temporary or contractual basis. The report also pointed out that despite the increasing preference for a contingent workforce
, the percentage of temporary workers has declined since 2005.
This is likely due to poor talent management by companies who rely on temporary staffing solutions. For instance, most temporary workers are paid less
than permanent employees. In this article, we are going to discuss how you can manage your contingent workforce more efficiently and the resulting benefits.
