The use of contingent labor by both Fortune 500 and midsized companies has consistently grown and will continue to become a critical tool used by HR departments to ensure a skilled workforce. The main drivers for this strategy are:
- Increased Pressure on Managing Headcounts: Managers are under increased pressure to maintain current levels of FTEs
- Cost Savings: Contingent labor significantly reduces employee benefit costs
- Flexibility: Project based work; specifically around software development lends itself well to the contingent staffing model. This is additionally true in the light industrial sector where seasonality in work is a factor.
