The workforce has changed pretty rapidly over the last five years or so. As more workers move from standard, full-time roles into fluid engagements with employers, the ability to effectively scale and maximize your talent investment has never been more profound. These workers have been (or are currently) referred to as contractors, freelancers, and temp employees, among other titles.
Contractors come and go – it’s a fact of life in the temporary workforce business. At the same time, the number of contractor positions continues to grow by leaps and bounds; back in 2011, the Department of Labor reported that staffing agencies were adding 25,000 jobs each month over a 12-month period.
