Philadelphia, PA – June 13, 2017 – SharedXpertise, publisher of HRO Today, and Allegis Global Solutions, a leading provider of global talent solutions, have announced the release of the study: Growth of Freelancers and Best Practices on How to Attract Them.

This exclusive report reveals that the APAC region is growing rapidly, with nearly one-half of respondents anticipating their use of freelancers will increase within the next 24 months. The use of freelancers over the prior two years has also increased, as nearly a quarter of respondents reported an increase during that time.

“We found in this study that there are myriad factors that most attract freelancers, but for most, higher pay isn’t one of them,” said Larry Basinait, Vice President of Market Research, SharedXpertise. “Flexibility was cited by 85 percent–by far the most cited factor–followed by the chance for more interesting projects and clearly defined project specifications.”

“This study also helps us identify which roles freelancers can fill and how we might best reach them,” said Craig Fisher, Head of Global Marketing, Allegis Global Solutions. “To help further, Allegis has been at the forefront of providing localized expertise and services that help employers connect with the right employees, and we pride ourselves on specializing in the APAC market.”

This study is the first in a series of HRO Today Flash Reports. These reports discuss the results of research and editorial papers that address today’s topics of interest in the HR community, and can be leveraged to support business decisions and to spark discussions among human resource practitioners and thought leaders globally.
