Illuminating the Shadow Workforce

Realities of the Changing World of Work

Part of the “Illuminating the Shadow Workforce” report

Businesses across most industries are using gig workers but if you ask a senior leader, they may not realize the impact of this extended workforce due to a lack of visibility. Often times, these “non-W2” workers may be paid through multiple channels — staffing agency, accounts payable, payroll and direct pay — which makes it difficult to determine how much an organization spends holistically. In budgeting terms, these workers can represent a company’s "rogue spend" and the lack of visibility makes them akin to a “shadow workforce.”
