Now these two service conditions have made life of new employees complicated. Due to contact employment future of employee uncertain whether to get full salary and benefits when. At the same time when another doing same job appointed equally getting full salary is difficult.

Contact service is not good due to lack of involvement, but in cases due to want of employment and in anticipation of future full salaries contact employees involved and hard working. In spite of that if full salary and job security shall not be there, then this is not good. - Er. Jangyadutta 9 months ago

To be truly flexible to deal with market demands, a company needs to think in terms of three tiers. Tier 1 is your employees who take care of business as usual and business critical tasks. They carry the company culture. Tier 2 is trusted contractors. People you deal with on a regular basis to meet temporary growth in demand, or to get skills only when you need them that you don't need full time employees for. Your tier 2 understands your brand and culture, they can easily be added to your workforce. Tier 3 is everything else, you could almost say commodity labor needs. Could be fulfilled by anyone.

In my view, modern companies subscribe to this model, traditional companies want only tier 1, and only grudgingly accept tier 3. They don't want tier 2.

How about JITE = Just In Time Employees? - Dr. David E. 9 months ago
They play vital role at need, all company need them, without them company work will stop for time. - Er. Jangyadutta 9 months ago
Dr. David E. Marcinko MBA : not all countries allow for the concept of JIT Employees. In the Netherlands we have 0 hour contracts, but they are under constant scrutiny. Plus the concept would be more powerful if you could also make that employment temporary. And repeatably so. - Bart 9 months ago

JIT

Just-in-time manufacturing, also known as just-in-time production is a methodology aimed primarily at reducing times within production system as well as response times from suppliers and to customers.

Its origin and development was in Japan, largely in the 1960s and 1970s and particularly at Toyota.

From the perspective of a worker, you have to ask yourself how you weigh the trade off between flexibility and benefits such as health, dental and 401k. Many companies have begun using gig workers because they are able to let the person go without having to follow the internal termination procedures and because they do not pay benefits.
A gig worker who would rather be a regular full time employee should continue doing a job search. A gig worker who likes the freedom and flexibility of temp work must find these protections in another way. I understand there are groups forming now to provide benefits to gig workers but it is not the norm yet

As an employee its also depends on what are your requirements. Sometimes people want consulting jobs and don't want to stick to an employer.

Full time job has more security as compare to contract jobs.In Full time job your paying company is same as your working company where as in contract jobs,your paying company is different from your working company.And it affects a lot,you are feeling like outsiders ,sometimes they won't get some facilities which their permanent employees are getting.In some companies,they are behaving very rudely with contract employees.Any way employee has no option apart from following what they are saying.
