, we have been serving the executive permanent placement profile across multiple disciplines and industries for the past 16 Years. We are pleased to announce that in addition to our permanent placement services, we will now be serving the contract employment sector as well.
It is 2018 and we are living in what many call a "Gig" economy. You may have heard about this or seen a business headline but what is it? It's also called Workforce 2.0. It may also be referred to as freelance work. Today, over 40% of the workforce has means to a secondary income. By 2020, over half of the workforce will be in this group. Many start their freelance work by doing a Contract or Contract to Hire role. This is a sector of the workforce that continues to expand annually. As things evolve, one thing is certain and that is that there is very little "permanent" employment any longer. The days of retiring after 30+ years in one company is the exception rather than the rule. Given this shift in employment status, this article is going to clearly define and provide insight into the world of contract staffing.
