US research shows hiring contractors boosts employment rates
Contractors may be interested to hear about the latest research from the US, claiming that hiring flexible workers boosts short and long-term employment rates.
The recent report carried out by international recruiter ManpowerGroup, revealed that hiring temporary workers, such as contractors, remains a key element to jolting and supporting business growth.
ManpowerGroup’s chairman and CEO, Jeffrey Joerres, explained, “Hiring talent on a temporary basis enables companies to assess and align the increasingly broad range of modern skills – and even discover new ones – that will give them a competitive edge in their industry. In turn, employed workers jolt broader economic growth, as they boost consumer spending and the housing market, and not only do they develop and implement the critical business strategies but they start new enterprises that create more jobs.”
“The science of harnessing cutting edge skills to drive business success is only starting to be realized (sic) by today’s most progressive companies. I am excited to see our clients reinforce their flexible work models in 2013, to enable them to respond to fluctuating demand and execute their business strategies.”
ManpowerGroup President Jonas Prising added, “For workers, temporary roles are a golden ticket to learning about skills in demand by today’s employers – and an excellent platform for actually using and refining skills, while earning an income.
“ManpowerGroup drives business success with skills assessment and development tools that align the right talent with the right business opportunity.”
