Trends in Contingent Staffing

At a recent conference held by the National Association of Personnel Services, the following trends were identified for the contingent workforce:

  • 96% of companies use contract staffing
  • 83% of companies say that contractors work harder than full-time employees
  • It is projected that 73% of companies will switch to having their full-time employees be C-Suite level and the rest will be part-time and contract employees.

In addition, according to Staffing Industry Analysts, when they asked the companies, “What is the size of your contingent workforce?” the average response for 2017 was 20%.  They anticipate by 2027 their contingent workforce will be 25% of their workforce including:  Direct Temporary Workers, Independent Contractors, Human Cloud Workers and Agency Temporaries.
