Why Hire a Contractor

Before we begin, you may be asking yourself, “Why would a client company want to do contracting?” Three simple words come to mind: cost, flexibility, and risk.

  • Reduce employment costs by allowing companies to only pay for the skill set they need, with very little training or ramp-up time.
  • During a hiring freeze or a budget constraint, contracting is a cost effective way to get the job done.
  • Avoid traditional overhead costs for things like healthcare that are associated with traditional employees.
  • Gain tremendous staffing flexibility to complete projects and meet deadlines.
  • Try the candidate and see them in action before making a direct hire.
  • Eliminate the risk tied to workers’ compensation, unemployment, benefits, and the normal exposure related to having traditional employees.

Why Become a Contractor

With all of the changes in today’s workplace and economy, contracting has become very prevalent among candidates.

  • Achieve higher earning potential because you get paid for every hour you work including time-and-a-half for overtime.
  • Get paid weekly as W-2 employees and still have access to a full benefits package.
  • Gain flexibility in your lifestyle to balance work and family.
  • Enhance their technical and professional knowledge and your portfolio of skills.
  • Get your foot in the door of a specific company.
