The Economic Role of Freelance Workers in the Construction Industry

The Economic Role of Freelance Workers in the Construction Industry has been produced by the CRSE and Hudson Contract. By analysing firms in the construction industry in 2010, 2013 and 2017, the report found that freelancers’ work and flexibility add value to businesses that could not be gained from employee labour. Its key aim is to explore this vital part of the industry, using extensive empirical analysis including site visits, case studies and statistical analysis, and combining it with insights from both industrial and labour economics.
