On HR Technologist - Creating High Performance Teams with Flex Labor
Consultants, freelancers, and project-based talent are very important parts of how companies resource their projects. Today, I published this article on how to best work with different types of employees in order to get things done faster (and well!) Many thanks to Sushman and the editorial team of HR Technologist!
Hiring managers and HR professionals see that more and more companies are using flexible labor as part of their regular hiring plans. McKinsey notes that contract work has grown four times faster than total employment in the last decade, and a recent survey indicated that 34 percent of the US population - roughly 53 million people - are freelancing in one form or another. But perhaps companies still fear to regularly use a blended team of full-time employees and flexible labor. However, such teams often have the potential to far outperform a standard team made up solely full-time staff.
