As many as two-thirds of contractors have either moved, or plan to move to permanent/part-time/full-time work due to worries about job security.
The Bullhorn survey shows that both contractors and temporary workers are also concerned about rates of pay.
Andy Ingham, Senior Vice President, EMEA and APAC, Bullhorn, commented, “While the gig economy appears to be growing rapidly, unresolved issues around job security and pay could threaten to derail it. Ongoing regulatory concerns like IR35 and the continued impact of the pandemic could further exacerbate the issue. Why risk job security and worse pay for flexibility that can be increasingly found in the ‘new normal’ of permanent work?”
