The Dynamics of Contingent Labor

Three strategies for ensuring consistent supply of contingent labor at “market” rates


The use of contingent labor is expected to continue to increase over the next two years, and the low unemployment rate in the United States will continue the supply/demand imbalance experienced over the last 12 months. It will be important for organizations to apply strategic sourcing practices for all labor and labor-based categories to maintain cost control, and to ensure that contingent labor remains an effective tool to balance labor costs with variable demand for the organization’s products and services.
