Embrace the contractor revolution
Contractors are now more than one-third of the American workforce. These independent professionals move quickly from assignment to assignment, accepting and executing work orders for multiple clients in what experts call the “gig economy.” This nontraditional approach to employment affords contractors great freedom and makes it easier for them to adjust to changes in the marketplace.
Businesses are largely on board with this shift. An estimated 50 percent of organizations worldwide employ freelancers, a staffing practice that reduces overhead and facilitates optimal scalability.
Field-service businesses are among the many enterprises embracing contract workers. Mixed workforces drive excellent customer service and facilitate flexible operational models that can generate revenue in today’s shifting economy.
