IT Contracting at all time record high
This week, wealth management firm Robert W Baird have indicated that the use of agency contractors is at an all time high for the eighth consecutive month. They report that the use of agency contractors in the service sector has doubled since 1995.
Senior Research Analyst Mark Marcon stated, "Companies prefer hiring through temporary agencies because it gives them more flexibility, and helps them deal with uncertain times and uncertain regulations."
And it is the IT sector that is taking most advantage. It was reported as having the fastest growing number of temporary hires as businesses take advantage of hiring in key skills on a project basis, rather than permanently.
