BOSTON, Jan. 9, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Randstad Sourceright, a global talent solutions leader, today announced the release of "Identifying & Managing Independent Contractor (IC) Talent Compliantly," a new white paper designed to help employers capitalize on the growing contingent workforce and support business goals with a flexible and skilled on-demand talent pool. Now available for complimentary download, this white paper offers best practices for engaging independent contractors, adopting contingent labor strategies and ensuring compliance with the latest federal and state regulations.

As business needs change and workforce demographics shift, more companies rely on independent contractors and free agents for in-demand skills, creating a source of on-demand talent. However, it is important for companies to understand that with no single legal definition of employee, maintaining compliance across an organization can be challenging and risky; and though technology can help facilitate the process, ultimately, responsibility will fall to the company to properly classify their workers. Businesses with clearly defined workforce strategies, as well as visibility into their permanent and contingent labor force, will be better equipped to navigate changing compliance regulations and retain talent.

"Identifying & Managing IC Talent Compliantly" highlights contingent workforce trends and new research detailing the need for well-developed workforce strategy to support increased visibility and efficiency across an organization. Included in the complimentary white paper are best practices organizations can adopt to enable the success and retention of their contingent workforce, from taking a total talent approach to talent acquisition and hiring, to identifying an audit and assessment process to ensure compliance.

"As changing compliance regulations continue to put pressure on organizations employing independent contractors and contingent workers, there are any number of strategies and solutions that can mitigate risk and reduce concern," said Beth Mesechoff, director of Contractor Compliance Services for Randstad Sourceright. "With the right insight and approach, employers can develop an efficient, effective and flexible workforce program, and Randstad Sourceright is committed to helping companies understand the nuances and requirements to help promote the success of the organization, without added risk."
