San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) January 23, 2012
The flexible workforce has become indispensable to American businesses, according to a new M Squared Consulting poll. The annual M Squared survey, which captured the insights of 530 professional independent consultants on a variety of topics, also found an overwhelming majority of consultants satisfied with their career choice.
“The new world of work has arrived,” said John Kunzweiler, CEO of M Squared Consulting, the leading provider of project leaders and subject matter experts for managing and implementing business-critical initiatives. “The use of the flexible workforce is exploding in America because it aligns the desire of elite consulting professionals to work independently with the need by companies to transform themselves to be successful.”
In the survey, a solid 69 percent of professional independent consultants agreed that the use of the flexible workforce is now a permanent work model in America. Also, 52 percent of respondents were either cautiously optimistic or very optimistic about the U.S. economy in 2012.
In addition, a striking 81 percent are satisfied or extremely satisfied with their career choice as an independent consultant. When asked what they enjoy most about working as a consultant, the majority of respondents cited “interesting/challenging projects” followed by “schedule flexibility, better work/life balance.” The overwhelming majority of survey respondents wish to remain working as professional independent consultants, and 55 percent expect their revenues to increase in 2012.
The online M Squared poll of independent consultants was conducted in December 2011; the complete survey report is available online at http://www.msquared.com.
