Contingent workers are those who do not have an implicit or explicit contract for ongoing employment. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, contingent labor accounts for over 26% of the US labor force and expects continual growth beyond 2020. Contingent workers provide a variety of benefits to an organization: Easily add headcount to projects that need temporary assistance and have many workers with specific skills at your disposal.
By utilizing a tool like the iCIMS Talent Platform, companies can capture talent when there is not a current job opening for a worker’s skillset. This will allow you to maintain a warm pipeline of qualified candidates and build relationships with these candidates. Candidates can then be contacted when a position for their skillset opens.
Using a formal onboarding system can help increase the productivity of the contingent worker. By allowing workers to complete all of their new hire paperwork online and exposing them to your company’s culture through company documentation and videos. Easily track all completed and unfinished onboarding documents online through an onboarding portal.
