    Current Use of IT Contract Workers

    The decision to use contract workers is an important one. There are pros and cons either way: flexibility versus stability, lower costs versus no fixed rates. Managing the contract workforce is a balancing act. In this study, we examine the use of contract workers as a percentage of the IT staff by organization size and sector. We also examine the five-year trend between 2007 and 2011 to discover how the use of contract labor has changed over time, particularly in light of the recent recession. The report concludes with our view on current and future trends in contract labor use. (9 pp.,4 figs.) [Research Byte]
