Based upon what we see at Work Market, industries such as information technology and telecommunication, retail merchandising, promotional marketing, digital signage, medical device service, and facilities management - just to name a few - are turning to freelancers, contractors, and consultants in droves.
In these industries, freelance work is quickly becoming the go-to extended workforce model. Based on a survey we conducted in late 2013, 65 percent of enterprises report they plan to hire more contractors in 2014. The ability to scale quickly is the number one reason reported for this growth.
This is good news not just for the companies who will beneﬁt from the added eﬃciencies of using freelancers, but also for workers who seek to build their careers from freelancing.
This white paper written by workmarket examines who is this on-demand workforce? What types of jobs do they do? What kind of skills do they bring to the table? Where do they live? What types of tools do they use in their everyday work? How do you ﬁnd and manage them?
