Whether an enterprise is just beginning its foray into the world of contingent workforce management (CWM) or has had a mature program in place for years, there’s no question that technology plays an integral role in the present and future of the non-employee workforce.
The holiday season is a busy one for enterprise contingent workforce management professionals. Delivery services, hospitality businesses and retailers are all looking to boost their workforce to meet spikes in consumer demand.
The use of contract-to-hire workers has been on the rise in recent years. There are numerous reasons driving the popularity of this type of workforce, but one is particularly clear—businesses want to be sure they are making the right hiring decisions.
There is no dispute that the use of the contingent workforce is growing across the business landscape. It helps businesses quickly acquire impactful talent to provide effective support right out of the gate.
One of the biggest points of contention about the use of contingent and temporary workers is that businesses are often accused of using contractual arrangements to avoid the legal responsibilities associated with hiring full-time employees.
