Contractor News Roundup: July 2020
In newly-published figures, contractor and freelancer marketplace PeoplePerHour.com has indicated that the value of assignments posted by clients started to rise in September 2009, and this has led to a series of sharp increases with compounded monthly growth of 30% and an all-time high in January 2010. This strongly indicates that the marketplace for a flexible workforce is once again growing, and can only be good news for contractors.
Commenting on these results, PeoplePerHour.com founder Xenios Thrasyvoulou said, “The value of assignments posted on the site has risen steadily through the recession, and we’ve also seen a sharp increase in assignments since the economic climate improved, suggesting that clients are hiring freelancer’s to help take advantage of the upturn, as an alternative to recruiting employees.”
