rise of the contingent workforce
Rise of the Contingent Workforce
  • Economic Downturn + Health Reform =
  • Rising Numbers of Contingent Workers
  • Today, there are more than 2.5 million workers in temporary positions.
  • More than 2 in 5 employees say they are more interested in non-traditional employment since the recent recession.
  • 26% plan to work as a temporary/contractor for the foreseeable future or until they retire.
  • 33% of ALL workers are more likely to consider or pursue a career as a temporary or contractor if affordable health insurance options areavailable to them as a result of health care reform.



Mid-2013 research conducted by the Aberdeen Group indicates that 26% of the average company’s contingent workforce will be comprised of independent contractors this year.

  • Elance, the leading online work marketplace, reported that 50,000 new freelance jobs were created in September 2013.
  • Nearly one-third of the entire U.S. workforce is considered independent, a category not captured by the Bureau of Labor Statistics.


The State of Contingent Workforce Management research study found that, over the

next three years, the average contingent workforce will grow by nearly 30%. And, with

the lines being blurred between so many different categories of contingent labor

(services, consultants, Statement of Work or SOW, traditional temporary labor,

independent contractors, etc.), the modern organization will have to take a multi-

faceted approach in 2014 in order to effectively maintain a sharp balance between

spend, talent and performance management within their contingent workforce(The

Ardent Group).


Research from Aberdeen, Gartner, Deloitte and others says that less than 1 in 5 HR

leaders today accept accountability for planning, sourcing, managing, and releasing “all

forms of labor” in use by the organization.

Does our brand appeal to all types of talent?

  • How can we effectively use free agents?

How do we assess our workforce compliance programs?

Are we optimizing recruiting across all categories of workers?

Are we able to track the cost of all types of talent?

Do our hiring managers understand how to leverage a blended workforce?

How are we building our talent communities?

How do we include free agents in strategic workforce planning?

Do we have a single view of our workforce?


The expansion of self-employment free agency is ever-present and will only

increase as technology, society and cost come together to create a portable

dynamic work environment.

Embracing a strategy that promotes flexibility, efficiency and collaboration is

also great for business. Successful companies have learned a blended

workforce strategy is also cost-effective.

The only constant is change, continuing change, inevitable change…that is

the dominant factor in society today. No sensible decision can be made any

longer without taking into account not only the world as it is, but the world

as it will be.

— Isaac Asimov
