Contingent Workforce Trends at U.S. Life Sciences Companies

Published: August 2019


Contract and freelance workers increasingly make up a greater population of the workforce as life sciences companies turn to outsourcing to save on overhead costs. 92% of U.S. life sciences companies currently hire contingent workers, and more than 35% of those plan to increase their contingent worker population this year. This trend may also signify that companies are more cautious about full-time employee buildout until they have a solidified product to bring to market.
