Tips For Considering a Contingent Workforce

By Rob Balfour, VP Enterprise Sales, AllWork 

It is a fact that the contingent workforce is changing the game when it comes to the way employee performance is measured. Today’s workforce is a hybrid of seasoned employees working alongside hourly employees that make up most of the jobs that fall into the contingent workforce realm.

As the hybrid workforce model grows, so does the need to manage it. What I have found most interesting is that only 16% of leaders believe they have an effective performance management process to supervise the contingent workforce. This is not a trend, but a mere fact that companies – especially those that have consumer-facing roles – will be increasing their contingent workforce in the coming years.

In order to get the necessary results from this workforce, maintaining control is a critical component to achieve success. Here are several tips to consider when creating your contingent workforce.
