What is an Independent Consultant/Contractor?

In 2016. around 40% of the U.S. private workforce is an independent consultant, or has worked as an independent at some point in their career. Independent consulting work is an established trend in Western economies and a fast growing one in India as well.
But with so many types of independent workers, you may wonder – what does the term independent consultant really mean?
These Consultants are experts in their area of functional specialization like finance, strategy, marketing, operations, human resource, digital & infotech or select industry sectors like Consumer Goods, Pharmaceuticals, Automotive, Energy, Power, Logistics, Metals, Mining, Banking, Information Technology and so on. Independent work offers flexibility to both organisations and individuals.
These are very experienced professionals who prefer the flexibility of working for different organisations, on their terms rather than being in full time employment by any single company. They provide their services to multiple clients.

Why Should Your Company Need An Independent Consultants?

Organisations want to be become more responsive in addressing rapid change in the economy and hence they are looking for flexible ways to engage talent. This is where Independent Consultants come in. Independent professionals go by many names. Consultant, contractor, freelancer, self-employed, and even “small business owner” may be used accurately to describe a non-employee that performs work for a company for an agreed upon price.
A typical challenge in engaging independent consultants is the lack of good and transparent information about their quality of services. There are many established aggregators of independent professsionals in the IT services sector in the Western countries – but not many in more diverse management skill domains.
