Between technological advancements and the rising cost of living in major cities, it has never made more sense to freelance. And businesses are getting on board too, taking advantage of the trend towards more flexible working.
Freelancers allow businesses to tap into the right talent to fill a specific need at a given time. They can be a great asset and lead to greater efficiency in your business. But if utilising freelancers is outside of your comfort zone, you might be hesitant to make the shift. There are a few things you should know about working with freelancers and making the most of the gig economy.
At this workshop, we will bring together industry peers to discuss best practice and top tips. We will discuss:
Common misconceptions about working with freelancers
Permanent versus freelance: which is best and when?
How to get the most out of working with your freelancer
How to find, manage, and pay your freelancer
