There are unique considerations for managing a contingent workforce within particular industries. For example, there is oftentimes more scrutiny around the personal and professional backgrounds of those working within the financial services industry due to the myriad of government regulations in place. Another example is the need for healthcare companies to comply with data privacy laws. As you’re pursuing a technology solution, you want to ensure that the provider has expertise in your specific sector and understands how best to help you meet requirements related to your flexible workforce.
