Interim Talent on the Rise in 2020
Across all industries, we’re experiencing a candidate-driven market that is fueled by a growing demand for top talent during an era of short supply. The Senior Living industry is certainly feeling the pain. According to Hunt Scanlon, the most widely referenced, single source for information in the human capital sector, the need for talent has led to nearly three million people being employed in interim jobs. This number is expected to grow at a healthy pace over the next few years into 2025 as companies strive to stay agile in the midst of changing market needs.
Hiring interim workers can help businesses sidestep talent gaps, minimize business disruption, and remain competitive. A recent report by CareerBuilder found that 47 percent of employers reported that they planned to hire interim workers this past year, up slightly from 46 percent in 2018. Of these employers, 58 percent plan to transition some interim workers into full-time, permanent roles.
According to Julie Rupenski, President of MedBest, “Now more than ever, clients are asking for interim executive consultants and solutions. They recognize their tremendous value when it comes to providing internal leadership as well as serving as a placeholder. In addition, interim resources can take some of the pressure off while searching for the right long-term fit.”

–Ability to Hit the Ground Running
-Adaptable to High Pressure Situations
-Quick to Identify and Solve Team Pain Points
-Ability to Transition Role Seamlessly to Successor
