Is A Perfect Storm Fueling the Contingent Workforce?

“Screw your cubicle farm!” The free agent nation is here.

In 2001, Dan Pink published a bestselling and forward-thinking business book titled Free Agent Nation: The Future of Working for Yourself. By all current reports, that future has arrived.

Recruiters… Stand up straight and stop bending over

Are you a Gold Recruiter?

Recruiting is a highly competitive sport. All external recruiters reach for the top, hoping to become finally recognized as a Gold Recruiter.

Recruiting is probably not much of a team sport, based on my observations from a corporate HR desk. Perhaps it is a function of the general reward system, with commissions linked to placement. Perform well and you get paid well.
