Ann, suspect you are seeing current examples of one of the three work patterns of the future discussed here a few months ago: http://www.compensationcafe.com/2014/10/hr-in-2022-1.html . The prediction that networks of independent contractors cooperating in virtual work relationships will be routine less than a decade from now makes sense.

The basic reality is that the competencies that give an individual value to one employer usually apply to many work situations. Frequently, the agent does not need "the organization" to leverage their KSAs into productive output. Such skilled workers can and will offer their services to any and all, increasingly in the future. Highly talented people do not need "the company" today as much as the company needs them.
