  1. 1. May 9, 2011<br />SHRM Poll: Staff Levels and the Use of Contingent and Part-time Workers<br />
  2. 2. Key Findings<br /><ul><li>The future use of temporary workers will remain relatively stable. More than one-half (51%) of poll respondents predict that over the next three years, their organizations’ reliance on temporary workers will remain about the same. A little over one-tenth (13%) predict having to rely more on temporary workers, while approximately the same number of organizations (14%) expect to rely less on temporary workers. Almost a quarter (22%) of organizations don’t currently use nor do they plan to use temporary workers.
  3. 3. More than one-third of organizations currently do not use contract employees. Of those that do, over the next three years, 41% expect the use of contract employees to be about the same as it is now. Few organizations reported changes in the use of contract workers over the next three years (12% will rely more on these workers and 11% will rely less).
  4. 4. Forecasted outlook for organizations’ reliance on full-time employees and contingent workers is expected to remain the same. Nearly two-thirds (62%) of organizations expect to have about the same reliance on full-time employees and contingent workers over the next three years. More than a quarter (29%) expect to rely more on full-time employees and less on contingent workers.
  5. 5. The top reasons organizations use contingent staff are to complete specific projects (27%) and to use as an additional resource during certain business or seasonal cycles (25%).
  6. 6. Most organizations do not convert temporary workers to full-time permanent positions. Just a little more than one-tenth (12%) of organizations reported that they almost always or frequently hire a temporary worker as a full-time employee. A quarter (25%) said this sometimes happens, and almost two-thirds (64%) stated that this never or rarely happens. </li></ul>2<br />
