An IT specialist working in his office.

The percentage of tech workers opting for independent work is on the rise, so CIOs are turning to contract IT staff to fill the talent gap. According to a recent study, 66 percent of CIOs plan to increase their use of contract or freelance workers in the next year. This shift reflects the fact that many top tech talent prefer short-term projects and gigs over long-term employment.

For CIOs, contract IT staff can be a cost-effective way to get the skills they need without making a long-term commitment. And with the rise of online staffing platforms, it’s easier than ever to find qualified workers for specific projects.
