The advent of globalisation and decreasing government labour market within the Western World have wreaked havoc with the concept of what has been thought of as traditional employment. As work becomes increasingly casual, part-time and temporary it also results in a workforce that is increasingly dynamic and fluid features which present an ever-increasing challenges for organisations to manage. This paper investigates some of these challenges within the professional contractor workforce (a working relationship that typifies the speed of the change from the traditional and ongoing employer/employee relationship). Implications for the individual, the organisation and organisational culture as well as future research needs are discussed.
