As the recovery rebounds, so too, does hiring; more specifically, contract talent hiring. The Bureau of Labor Statistics found temporary hiring in November to be up to its highest levels since 2004. In an article from USAToday, Gary Mathiason, vice chairman of Littler, the No. 1 employment law firm, said "half the jobs created in the recovery will be filled by contractors, consultants and other temps."
The benefits of using contract talent are staggering; imagine a just-in-time, experienced, less expensive workforce ready to launch a new product or close out an older one. Yet most Human Resource functions do not have the processes, controls and programs to support this level of contingent hiring. What does your organization need to transform into an agile one? What can a flexible workforce contribute to both your company's bottom line and service innovation?
