A blended workforce utilises a mix of both full-time and contract employees. The GCC has been slower to embrace this model than other regions, but HR Observer and TASC Outsourcing’s research shows 64% of survey respondents say their organisations are ready to adopt the model.
Contract employees offer solutions to many of the hiring challenges organisations face: 57% of respondents said access to the right candidates, and 34% said access to a diverse candidate pool were among their biggest challenges.
Almost 65% said hiring contract employees would ease scaling up or down, 53% said it would reduce operational costs, and 62% said it would offer access to workers with specialised skill sets without having to hire full-time employees.
