Despite their status and degree of separation, contingent workers expect the same workplace integration that full-time employees would, a study by Flextrack suggests.
Company culture is becoming as much of a priority for contingent workers as pay has been. This is notable, researchers say, because pay rate has traditionally been a primary factor in selecting gigs.
In fact, several factors ranked higher than “maximum compensation,” which came in at No. 8 in Flextrack’s survey. Among them: “meaningful work,” flexible scheduling and diversity, equity and inclusion commitments.
