Contingent Workforces Increasing

Percentage of Contingent Workers Increasing

In an increasing age of digitalization, many organizations are adopting what MBO Partners describe as a modern workforce model. According to their recent report, The Contingent Labor Imperative, “the average company reports that contingent labor makes up 28% of their workforce.”

Why are organizations using more contingent workers?

  • Address time-sensitive workload needs.
  • Complete a project that requires outside expertise.
  • Faster completion of tasks.

An additional bonus to a higher percentage of these workers relates to sustainability. Sustainability projects are another initiative that can bolster a company’s environmental image in a time when the climate is a top concern for many individuals.

Of course, a modern contingent workforce does not come without its share of challenges. For one, it can be harder to have consistent work quality when working with these professionals. Not to mention, companies that require specifically skilled professionals can find it hard to locate contingent employees with these same specializations. Luckily, APC can help you with that.
