Being a successful independent contractor or a Client of Choice isn’t just about doing the best work or having the best perks. It also means staying one step ahead of the curve. That’s why each week we bring you The Weekly Independent, a quick-hit digest of news of note from around the web.

  • The Tony Blair Institute for Global Change shares its critical findings as they explore “digital labor platforms,” which have become integral to many people’s daily lives.
  • A recent Grant Thornton survey revealed that two of every five recent job switchers are looking for new work opportunities again as businesses should expect the persistence of the “war for talent.”
  • The Staffing Industry Analysts organization reports that 43% of internal workers left staffing firms due to uninspiring culture or leadership. It also cites three factors that could drive internal staff satisfaction.
  • Satya Nadella, the CEO of Microsoft, is worried that more workers are logging in more hours and working late into the night. He advocates for well-being as one of the most important pieces of productivity. 
  • A Computerworld article predicts a blue-collar remote work revolution.
  • Despite more companies having a remote work policy, nearly 40% of employees find it difficult to work remotely. An HR Dive article shares three critical software capabilities to support a remote work policy and work arrangements.
  • This People Matters article discusses why organizations should also prioritize employee experience tools in hybrid work arrangements to create better and easier working environments. 
  • A CTech article explains why organizations should pursue flexible working arrangements and growth opportunities to mitigate the effects of the Great Resignation.
  • Given the rising US inflation, workers’ expectations for higher wage and salary also increases. Most U.S. organizations are also planning a payroll budget increase this year. 
  • The U.S. Treasury published a report entitled “The State of Labor Market Competition” as it discusses the impact of excessive concentration, non-compete agreements, and the misclassification of workers on wages and benefits.  

Should you have any questions, we’re always here for you.

Of course, we’d love to talk virtually as well. Share your thoughts with us at MBO Partners on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and LinkedIn, and we’ll see you again next week!
