The Contract Staffing Revolution is here and now.
There are 53 million Americans--that's 34% of the US workforce--working on contract. Many e-discovery project managers and technical analysts have hit a concrete ceiling of vertical and financial mobility and are seeking alternative professional pathways. The consolidation of dominant market tools such as Relativity, LAW, and NUIX has allowed for greater standardization of skills and thus greater choice of talent to handle most projects. Larger projects happen less often as a result of the adoption of Managed Service Agreements as well as advances in technology, but when landmark litigation hits, TRU is there to provide a vast amount of contract resources to scale rapidly. Millenials are now the vast majority of middle market talent and crave the contract lifestyle, while veterans in e-discovery yearn for the days of paid overtime, which TRU provides all contractors.
