What Feels More Secure – Consulting or Traditional Careers?

As we consider the recent, massive transitions in the traditional workforce resulting from the pandemic and lingering Great Resignation, we wonder what feels most secure to workers? As people are pursuing independent work now more than ever, it’s not surprising that 2/3 of the independents surveyed felt that their work was less risky. In fact, the percentage of independents feeling more secure in their line of work than in traditional, permanent roles has continued to rise over the last ten years.

What we are hearing from you…
