How A Contingent Workforce Can Help Your Business Scale

Talent On Tap: How A Contingent Workforce Can Help Your Business Scale

By Erin Sequerah, Head of Contingent Workforce

With the rise of the contingent workforce today, organisations are able to widen the talent pool they access. We understand how important it is to scale at just the right pace and to adjust according to needs. In other words, we get it— an agile workforce is what makes businesses function at their full potential.

Recently a client of ours a leading professional service provider required a contingent workforce for a new project. They had exactly 10 days to kick start the project and the challenge was finding qualified candidates, interviews, onboarding and developing a standardized contract.

Our CXL contingent workforce team went to work and minimised the risk for their business as all other aspects, including hiring, onboarding, compliance, and payroll were handled by our experienced team of consultants. Our solutions allowed their business to scale when needed with temporary or contract staff. Their existing employees appreciated the added support, and the team was able to function at their full potential to meet current work demands.

The benefits of a contingent workforce are numerous. For businesses, it offers a cost-effective solution to staffing needs, as they only pay for the work that is required, without the additional overheads of salaries, benefits, and other expenses associated with permanent staff. The contingent workforce is also highly skilled and specialized, providing businesses with access to a range of talent that they may not have been able to afford or find otherwise.

For workers, the contingent workforce provides flexibility, autonomy, and the opportunity to work on projects that are of interest to them. They have the freedom to choose when and where they work, and they can often negotiate their own rates and terms of employment. This enables them to take control of their careers and achieve a better work-life balance.

The contingent workforce is an essential component of today’s modern workplace. It offers businesses the flexibility and agility they need to remain competitive, while providing workers with greater autonomy and control over their careers. However, it is important to manage this workforce effectively, to ensure that quality standards are maintained, and compliance with labor laws and regulations is met.

At CXL, we help fill employment gaps in your workforce with minimal risk and barriers through temporary and contract staffing solutions customised according to your business needs.
