Blended Workforce

What is a Blended Workforce?


A ‘Blended Workforce’ is a group of workers who have been employed under different contracts including permanent, part-time, temporary, contract, seasonal, full-time, freelancers, etc.


This kind of workforce leads to a huge diversity in the workplace and it has several advantages for the employers like the ability to scale up or down as per requirement, providing flexible working hours, etc. This arrangement also benefits the employees by having the ability to leave the company without any repercussions, having a flexible work schedule, etc.


There are multiple disadvantages for the employer too. The employees might be disengaged because they receive less support from the management. Similarly, there might be a disparity between full-time employees receiving additional benefits and contract employees who do not get the same kind of job protection.
