The only disadvantage that I understand on the employer’s part is that contingent worker’s cannot be an asset to the company.

The impact of contingent worker’s mostly are advantageous a few of them are listed below

• cheap and instant workforce

• not connected to unions or welfare organizations

• for site based projects to reduce movement by diverting permanent workers

• using local talent and skills reducing cost & time on training

• using minorities, collegians or women for survey related assignments

The major concern as stated by Vecchio (2006, p.16) is to manage contingent workers effectively as they do not have any commitment or loyalty to their employer.

With the growing number of social websites, online software’s and advancement in information technology has indirectly reduced efficiency and productivity in today’s employees mainly at the mid & lower level within the organisations. Vecchio (2006, p.15) states that with the increase of proportion of women in workforce, romance in workplace has begun to draw much attention. The trend provides greater opportunities for romantic relations to form. Rivalry, name-calling, intimidation, derogatory humor are misbehaviours in subtle form, but could be further aggravated to take the difficult forms leading to tussle, fights or even murder.
