Your strategic workforce likely includes traditional workers, your full-time and part-time staff. It may also include alternative workers, also known as contingent, temporary, or gig workers. If you are hiring to help with skills gaps, you may need to partner with a staffing supplier to find candidates faster. For some of you, this may not be a comfortable territory. But like many employment trends that sprung out of the past several months, you’ve adapted quickly. With this shift to include contingent workers, you may have questions about how a staffing agency uses background checks.
