1. Do you need help with a standalone project?
You will probably need to take on bigger projects in order to grow or you may need to reduce your operating costs. Contractors can be a valuable resource to enable you to take on newer larger customers or to identify and implement solutions to help you to save money.
2. It is more cost effective
Working with contractors is often much more cost effective than bringing on new, full-time employees. Let’s not forget that the cost of taking on an employee not only includes their basic pay, you also have to consider, tax and NI contributions, paid holiday, sickness etc., pension contributions.
3. A safe pair of hands
It helps to avoid risk by utilising a safe pair of hands with substantial skills and experience.
4. Utilising skills and expertise
Contractors will often provide expertise that you cannot get from your employees. In most cases, they have been working in a specific field for a number of years.
5. Increased Productivity
A contractor will be able to get the job done quickly and efficiently thus freeing up your employees to focus on your core business needs and meeting your customers expectations.
6. You can switch the tap off and on as and when you need to
This enables your business to be more agile rather than if you were to employ a permanent employee. Be forewarned, sometimes they turn into a lifetime business relationship if they're good at what they do!
Ending the working relationship with an employee can be difficult and can incur huge costs and time resulting from legal disputes.
Irrespective of the size of your organisation, whether large or small, contractors can help with short-term or specialised projects.
