According to surveys, freelancers now account for 36 percent of the U.S. workforce, and could account for 80 percent of the global workforce by 2030. And for good reason. On-demand staffing provides businesses with many advantages.
Whether you are a small business requiring a rapid infusion of human capital to keep up with growth, or a large corporation rightsizing in order to reallocate human capital toward more critical areas, on-demand staffing provides businesses with efficient human capital management to achieve whatever their objectives.
As businesses’ talent requirements change, whether due to growth or business cycle, on-demand staffing provides access to skilled individuals. According to one survey of workers, 64 percent say that professionals who are the top in their industry are increasingly choosing to work independently. Furthermore, 70 percent of full-time freelancers have participated in skills training in the past six months, which is about 21 percent more than full-time regular workers.
Many workers have become “digital nomads,” which just means that they are location-independent and rely on technology to make a living. Research suggests that 4.8 million workers currently describe themselves as digital nomads, with as many as 42 million considering it. Furthermore, 46 percent of freelancers indicate that they would be unable to work for a traditional employer without the flexibility of on-demand staffing, with nearly half of those citing health issues.
And with platforms such as Kadrae, it is even easier to locate talented individuals.
Kadrae is a worldwide work marketplace that connects business clients with qualified independent professionals. As businesses move increasingly toward a contingent workforce, Kadrae addresses the growing resource gap by fostering a network of skilled freelancers, contractors, consultants, and other self-employed workers, while providing a platform that ensures a reliable and equitable exchange of work.
Unlike other work marketplaces, which charge the independent professional as much as 20 percent commission, Kadrae provides business clients with a range of paid membership plans to ensure the best talent and provide available features such as background checks and the ability to manage your own contingent workforce through Kadrae.
