In a new infographic, MBO Partners shares five predictions for the independent workforce in 2013. There are 17 million independent workers in the workforce today, and that number is certain to increase in 2013 and beyond.
The predictions from MBO Partners hit on a number of important factors, including government scrutiny of companies’ activities in working with independent workers, the rise of “just-in-time talent,” and the rapid growth of products and services targeted to independent workers. Furthermore, Gene Zaino, CEO of MBO Partners, explains, “Professionals will use the independent work path to change, extend and grow their careers. No longer will independent work be a black mark on the resume; instead, expect it to become a tool to fast-track a career.”
