Originally published in SIA’s Staffing Stream on June 6 and June 13, 2022
Demand for contingent workers is growing as UK employers increasingly turn to contractors to fill roles. Research shows that contract vacancies shot up 24% compared to 2021, while in April, there was a 13% year-over-year increase. This is a truly global trend; according to Upwork’s 2021 Freelance Forward Survey, 36% of workers in the US are freelance, contributing a staggering $1.3T to the economy. This means organizations can’t afford to stand still on their flexible workforce strategy.

Her first blog shines a spotlight on the ways contingent workers are helping employers meet the challenges of employee churn and the benefits they bring to organizations. In her second blog, Jacqui dives into how to boost value from contingent worker engagement to win the most sought-after skills ahead of the competition.
