Gene Zaino's insight:

Insightful Quotes from this Article:

“For most organizations, people are a means and medium to an end. They're not hiring employees, they're hiring value creation. If they can get that value — or most of it — from contingency workers, outsourcing, automation, innovative processes or capital investment, why wouldn't they?”

“Growing number of employers are increasingly committed to not being committed....  My bet? Underemployed assets are frequently undervalued assets. Undervalued assets attract savvy investors and entrepreneurs. Prepare for the next New Permanent Temporary.”

The Rules of Engagement: How Much Do You Value Your Independent Contractors?

The Rules of Engagement: How Much Do You Value Your Independent Contractors? | Independent Consulting | Scoop.it

Independent contractor (IC) talent is one of the fastest growing segments of the contemporary workforce. In fact, according to Aberdeen research conducted in March and April 2013, 26% of an average organization’s total contingent workforce is expected to be comprised of ICs by 2014. Leading organizations recognize the role professional ICs (also referred to as independent consultants or freelancers) play in closing talent gaps, providing greater flexibility, and improving organizational efficiency. Additionally, ICs offer the specialized skillsets required for short-term, project-based initiatives that directly impact the bottom line. Despite the numerous benefits of IC utilization, the majority of organizations still struggle when managing and engaging this critical talent pool. As workforce demographics shift and ICs become more prevalent, organizations must reexamine their strategies and invest in solution providers that will both ensure compliance and drive business outcomes. This report helps shed light on the current state of IC relationships and options for the future.
