Further research revealed that almost two thirds of contractors and freelancers intend to continue working as their own boss for the foreseeable future. However, a minor 2% are looking to switch to permanent roles. This implies that contracting and freelancing is a long term decision with personal benefits rather than what was once thought as a short term solution during the recession.

In addition to this, the survey also discovered that almost 8 in every 10 freelancers and contractors have turned to the workstyle as they enjoy being their own boss and 69% believe this provides a better balance between work and personal life. This proves that many individuals believe contracting can create a bright future with benefits such as the freedom of when you choose to work and how you can build and schedule your work around both your family and personal priorities.
