The flexible workforce is growing quickly and forcing companies both big and small to adjust their strategy for hiring, onboarding, managing, and assigning on-going work to these important and valuable workers. If you currently use freelancers or are looking to work with freelancers this year, you’re going to come across a whole new set of challenges when it comes to onboarding, classifying, and paying this team.(more…)
Hiring, overseeing, and managing a flexible team is very different than the day-to-day management of traditional, 9-5 employees.

They work on constantly changing projects and timelines with a lack of face-to-face supervision.(more…)
The shift to a more flexible, remote workforce has been happening throughout the past couple of years, but 2020 and COVID have caused a huge acceleration in this trend. In recent years, many companies have allowed more employees to work from home. In 2018, a U.S. Census Bureau survey found that just 5.3 percent of Americans worked from home full time. That number in 2020? 42%. Taking it even one step further, the pandemic lockdowns have shown businesses that their workers don’t all need to be in the same place at the same time in order to get the job done. Not only are they working from home, now they are working from just about anywhere.(more…)
