By 2030 the majority of the Australian workforce will be Freelancers
Australia's contract/freelance workers are a satisfied bunch, making the most of the freedom, flexible hours and variety that their work choice offers. New research has revealed that despite a tough business environment during the GFC, contractors remained upbeat, confident and content with their choice of lifestyle with the number of contractors entering the workforce continuing to rise.
Speaking at the launch of the IPro Index 2010 study, Matthew Franceschini, CEO of Entity Solutions, said that these independent professionals currently make up 20 per cent of the workforce. He predicted that this figure would continue to rise due to the attractive benefits that come with contracting for both the worker and employer, claiming that the majority of the workforce will be contractors by 2030.
