Many companies successfully navigated the recession of 2008 by increasing their use of contingent and temporary workers. The flexibility that contingent staffing provides allowed companies to respond to fluctuating productivity demand with sufficient skilled human resources. According to a study by Randstad, 66 percent of employers are hiring contingent workers and over 20 percent plan to increase their temporary workforce in 2014.
Senior Contributing Writer for Monster, John Rossheim, suggests that the contingent staffing trend will continue.
