Managing a
Contingent Workforce
in the 21st Century


The worldwide workforce has dramatically changed from what it once was. The trend of strategic use of contingent labor has been in place for many years and continues to grow. There are signs of the gig worker reaching an inflection point where the use of contingent workforce will accelerate and expand into new ways that we must adopt to.

Thanks to technology companies like Uber, TaskRabbit, and Instacart, the new "gig economy" seems to constantly be in the news. But most of the media focus is on the low end of the skill spectrum; little attention is being paid to the best-in-class professionals who have chosen an independent path. New digital talent platforms are developing at a rapid clip with a wide variety of business models, many catering to very precise, high-value skill sets.
