The past three decades has seen a significant rise in non-traditional work arrangements. Collectively, temporary workers engaged through Recruitment Agencies, those engaged directly by organizations on a temporary basis and independent contractors can be classified under the collective nomenclature of ‘contingent’ workers. ‘Volition’ towards contingent work i.e. voluntarily choosing it, has been identified as a major influence on elements like satisfaction and commitment of these workers. Considering the dearth of research into the area in Ireland specifically, quantitative research was undertaken to establish to what extent the role of ‘volition’ influences the commitment and satisfaction levels of contingent workers in Ireland. Results indicate that volition has no significant influence on either commitment or satisfaction of contingent workers. Implications for Recruitment Agencies, Human Resources Departments and contingent workers themselves are discussed and future research topics proposed.
