According to Nation1099.com:
Employment in general is undergoing dramatic changes, often summarized as “the future of work” or Workforce 2.0. Anyone following workforce trends will have seen eye-popping numbers about the gig economy along the lines of “one third of all workers are freelancers” or “half of us will be in the gig economy by 2020.”
So, what does this mean for your company?
There are two broad impacts:
Employees are undergoing a shift - seeing more job transitions in their lifetime than ever before. This places an increased burden on employers to properly onboard employees to the organization. More resources need to be devoted to training and development and thought needs to be given to employee retention strategies.
Companies need to be open to outsourcing roles that would traditionally be held internally. This can be a significant advantage for small and medium sized firms who can capitalize on talent and expertise they may not be able to afford on their own. Companies who can't quite justify the salary of a full-time safety professional can utilize a third-party provider to meet this need. Larger organizations can benefit from supplemental services to complete specific projects and strategies.
Using out-sourced safety professionals can be the best of both worlds: You get the talent and expertise you need, quickly while also controlling your budget.
