The song, Welcome to the Jungle by Guns ‘N Roses, opens with big energy, but also a sense of confusion and messiness. This makes it the perfect anthem for the HR tech market today.

How to ease into the changing labor marketplace with different types of workers.

By Russ Banham

Imagine it’s the year 2030 and the company’s annual holiday party has just begun. A generation ago, there’d be all 500 employees here wearing funny hats, Jim getting a bit tipsy again, and needing a ride home. Today, Jim is gone and there are 60 full-time, salaried employees in attendance. The other 270 contingent workers are probably home with their families.
