The State of the Free Agent Nation and Contingent Workforce 2020

In recent years, many organizations have tapped into the contingent
workforce, but the future of such work arrangements is uncertain.
Organizations want to know, “How important will the contingent
workforce be over the long-term?” and, “If it is here to stay, how should
we efficiently and effectively source contingent workers?”

To gain a better understanding about how organizations acquire and manage the contingent workforce, we investigated a range of issues, such as:

  • How widespread the contingent workforce is today
  • Why organizations are using contingent employees
  • Whether organizations are managing their contingent
    workforces well
  • The common sources of contingent workers
  • The practices that seem most closely associated with success
