Chances are, if you do not employ a contingent worker at your organization, you may soon. According to data released by the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), the number of temporary workers in the workforce has increased by 29 percent since September 2009. During that same period, private jobs grew by less than one percent.
In addition, recent projections by the BLS indicate that the contingent workforce will continue to be among the fastest growing workforce segments, with an increase of 23 percent from 2010 to 2020, or an additional 631,300 jobs, to reach a total of 3.3 million.
This growing population of temporary workers emphasizes the need for organizations to address contingent workers in their background screening policies. According to the 2012 HireRight Employment Screening Benchmarking Report, only half of respondents indicated that they conduct background checks for contingent workers.
The following infographic illustrates where these new temporary worker positions are being filled. Do you use these types of contingent workers? Are you conducting background checks on them?
