Hiring of workers in the cloud appears to be looking up, according to a survey by Elance Inc., a firm that connects staffing buyers to off-site independent contractors over the Web.
Some 75 percent of business plan on increasing or maintaining their level of spend on hiring online professionals over the next 12 months, according to the survey. In comparison, only 15 percent plan to hire a traditional full-time employee or employees in the next 12 months.
In addition, 83 percent of firms plan to hire at least half their workers online in the next 12 months.
The survey included 300 U.S.-based Elance business customers.
