It looks like it’s the year of the freelancer. Per a recent survey of hiring managers, 61% of employers plan to replace up to 30% of their permanent jobs with freelancers, gig worders, and independent contractors in 2018.

Why would they do that? The answer lies in FLEXIBILITY – the economy requires companies to be more agile. Nearly 40% expect they will be able to combat employee shortage by using a staffing company and other non-traditional hiring methods. (PRNewswire, Dec 2017)
