The following excerpt from a Department of Labor report points to the trend for non-traditional employment in the U.S. The report deals with the topic in general and doesn’t focus on interim management or temporary executives.

“According to one national study, 65 percent of employers believed that, in the future, firms would increase their use of flexible staffing arrangements. The use of nontraditional workers fits with the evolving perceptions of employers regarding labor costs, competition, changing obligations, and potential litigation. “Just in time” workers mirror the successful industrial model of “just in time” inventories.”

I’m a Singapore based Interim Manager/Exec and just came across your blog.
Some very sound stuff here.

Interestingly enough it appears that the IM business is in its infancy in Asia but no one seems able to determine exactly why. I suspect a supply-deman chicke and egg scenario.

I would be happy to connect via LinkedIn for mutual benefit.

Kind regards

Hugh, here is my page on LinkedIn. .

From what I’ve leanred about IM the concept got its start in Europe due largely because of labor laws that make it very difficult to terminate employment. Companies see IMs as a flexible way to meet their requirements, and stay within the law without building a bloated organization. I’m not familiar with Singapore labor laws, but I suspect they are not like Euorpe’s.

  • About this Blog

    This blog is devoted to the topic of interim management for marketing functions within large and small corporations. Interim management as a staffing concept is well-understood and widely utilized in Europe. However, here in the colonies we are just beginning to open our eyes to the business benefits of being flexible and nimble when it comes to staffing senior-level marketers.
