Insurance Positions With the Biggest Influence on Contingent Worker Trends
by Amy Stuntz
A new NPR/Marist poll finds that 1 in 5 jobs in America is held by a worker under contract. Within a decade, contractors and freelancers could make up half of the American workforce. Workers across all industries and at all professional levels will be touched by the movement toward independent work — one without the constraints, or benefits, of full-time employment. Policymakers are just starting to talk about the implications. ~NPR, January 2018
Below are so many different types of disciplines its hard to believe they all rely on contractors to fill employment vacancies. That said, it also proves insurance is on the cutting edge of adopting non-traditional working arrangements. Insurance is an industry that requires experienced talent. We’re fond of saying around here, “If it requires insurance, it requires recruiting.” Knowledgeable people aren’t always right in your backyard or available for 40 hours a week indefinitely….no matter the type or level of position.
