Guide to Working with Independent Consultants

Meet your agile workforce.

It’s no secret that your company’s ability to capture new opportunities depends on the resources that are available to go after them.

Yet only 7% of senior managers strongly agree they have enough talent to pursue all of their most promising opportunities.Talent shortages of up to 40 million high-skilled workers are projected globally by 2020. With numbers like that, it’s hard to be surprised by surging interest in supplementing internal resources with high-end freelance talent.

Once reserved for temporary backfill or emergency support, independent consultants are now an essential strategic resource for many of today’s enterprises. By providing fast, targeted expertise with low overhead, independents deliver significant value while enjoying greater satisfaction and balance in their own lives.
