Contingent Employment

Contingent staff refers to temporary workers in casual employment who supplement a company's workforce. They are also known as freelancers or temporary contract workers.

Contingent staff may be hired through a staffing firm and they usually work under a contract for a fixed period of time or for a specific project. They are very popular in businesses with fluctuating seasonal staff demand – retail firms, call centres etc.

The main advantage of contingent employment is flexibility. As a contingent worker, you can set your own hours and are often trusted to do your work without close supervision from your employer. Contingent employment offers flexibility to employers as well, as it makes it easier for them to adjust their workforce to account for economic or seasonal fluctuations in the marketplace.

The majority of the contingent workforce is in customer service or operations, which are the areas where most of the volatility will be. Temps can be hired in other areas though. A marketing department may hire a freelance writer to help during a launch or a new product. Likewise, web designers may be hired on a contingent basis to redesign the website or employee intranet.
