Current Trends in Use of IT Contract Workers (2008)
Managing a contract workforce has become an increasingly important task for IT organizations. In this study, we examine the use of contractors and temps by organization size and sector. We also examine the four-year trend between 2004 and 2007 to discover how the use of contract labor has changed over time. Furthermore, we examine how the aggressive use of temporary employees relates to staff growth and turnover rates. The report concludes with our view on current and future trends in the IT contingency workforce. (5 pp., 7 figs.)[Executive Summary]
