In a recent paper published in Organizational Dynamics, Wharton professor Peter Cappelli says corporate managers often do not sufficiently consider risks when hiring temporary or contract workers, generally focusing on operational costs instead.

Cappelli says managers should take a systemic approach to risk management when making decisions about outsourcing, and rather than focus on reducing costs, they should concentrate on reliability and responsiveness.
