Engaging and communicating with contingent workers and employees continues to be a challenge for many organizations. Here are some simple tips that we surfaced during a recent project:

Community & Belonging:

  • Invite employees to social and informal events to build relationships and increase camaraderie
  • Include employees in employee resource groups (ERGs) and other groups to enable connection(s)
  • Request that existing employees share open job opportunities with colleagues with a contingent status if they see a potential fit
  • Provide opportunities for career and skills training (when appropriate)


  • Create opportunities for contingent workers to define and develop their individual sense of purpose (personal and career)
  • Connect contingent workers with other employees who share a similar sense of purpose or passion


  • Include contingent workers in all emergency response training, drills and programs
  • Ensure transparency and authenticity in all contingent worker communications to build trust and connection
  • Recognize contingent workers early and often with simple and meaningful rewards
