The nontraditional employment trend has continued on into the new year—and for good reason. Contingent workers help fill the void when looking for talent on a short-term basis or project. As for workers themselves, staffing agency Rose International found that nearly half of recent survey respondents identify the top benefits of contingent work as a good way to reenter the workforce (47%) and learn new skills (47%).
We suspect this trend will continue—so long as states don’t enact legislation defining who is and isn’t an employee (we’re looking at you, California!). With that being said, if you’re looking to fill your workplace with full-time alternative workers, a new Ceridian report will help you understand what attracts them. And if you’re looking to retain these workers once their contract ends, we’ve got some tips for you, as well.
