New Survey Shows Spike in Remote Contractors
Combine this BYOD and what’s left is a very complicated mobile workforce scenario, as now companies are managing multiple types of mobile workers - their own employees and independent contractors whose individual affiliations with the company is likely to be hugely varied.
