Contingent work is evolving into a true alternative to traditional service delivery
What if you could find the right talent for your company’s need—right away—and get those resources up and running on important work in a matter of days and at a fraction of the cost?
You probably can. Contingent workforce platforms (or virtual freelance platforms) have arrived on the scene. They look to solve the speed and agility problems that established and well entrenched service delivery methods cannot always handle by using technology to connect enterprise clients with a global resource pool of general and expert talent who will perform work virtually.
Leading platforms such as Upwork, Catalant, Gigster, Toptal, Expert 360, Pivotal Labs, CloudFactory, and Freelancer.com have attracted significant funding in recent years—some exceeding $75 million1—for good reason. Contingent workforce platforms have become more attractive to companies as the need to stay nimble in a fast-paced environment outweighs the benefits of hiring full-time resources or using a service provider in a traditional manner.
In this paper, discover how a contingent workforce platform works and the potential benefits for both employers and freelancers. This publication also addresses perceived barriers to adoption and features a real-world example of a contingent workforce platform in action.
