When Should You Utilize a Contract Employee?

When Should You Utilize a Contract Employee?

The markets are in chaos and everyone is tightening their budgets, but that doesn’t mean projects come to a halt. Whether you are an IT leader that just implemented new cybersecurity processes, or a marketing leader who has brought your outsourced SEO initiatives in-house – work still needs to be done. 

It all boils down to one pressing question: How do I add additional bandwidth to meet my 2022 end of year goals without adding the costs of hiring a full-time employee? 

Navigating Talent Acquisition 

We’ve helped clients in this exact scenario in the past, and there are typically three options:  

  1. Overload your current employees and risk them leaving 
  2. Lose any revenue or productivity from work not being completed 
  3. Hire a contract employee that you can quickly and easily engage 

If options #1 and #2 leave you a bit uneasy, you might want to consider hiring contract employees. 

Benefits of contract employees: 

  • Shorter hiring processes: You are looking for a temporary patch for a project or seasonal surge.  
  • Immediate impact: Hiring and ramping up a full-time employee can take up to 45-62 days, whereas contract employees are available and ready to start day one.  
  • Higher skilled and qualified candidates: Contract employees are typically focused on a specific trade or aspect of a field.
