Short-term talent is in high demand, and the ability to attract, hire and engage gig workers will be critical to companies' success.

More than 55 million Americans work as independent contractors, according to the nonprofit Freelancers Union, a figure that has grown by 2 million over the last two years. Gig work can be an opportunity to polish skills in a particular area, noted Neil Shastri, leader of global insights and innovation at Aon Hewitt in New York City. For other workers, it's a chance to break out of a strict 9-to-5 existence and gain more control over their schedule.

"Contractors often bring specialized skillsets to their roles as contingent workers which can be shared with their permanent employee counterparts," said David S. Patterson, president/senior practice leader with The Kineta Group Inc., in Tampa, Fla. "It's that in-demand knowledge that employers most seek these days.
