The Kelly Outsourcing and Consulting Group for years have been producing excellent reports on what they see as the changing nature of work. This has been through their Talent Project. You can download their free ebook. Fascinating statistics which yet again show that portfolio workers are in the vanguard of the latest work trends. The report does not use the term but instead uses the US concept of  ‘free agents’.  Not all free agents are portfolio workers but most portfolio workers will be free agents.

They claim that least 20 to 30% of the entire global workforce are now free agents and that this year there will be 1.19 billion free agents or about 35% of the worldwide workforce. The latter prediction is according to a study by global research company  IDC.

The report also discusses hybrid work groups and the virtual workplace. Definitely worth 20 minutes of your time.
