People often underestimate the importance of freelance workers in corporate environments.
But freelance workers are a large part of what makes the dream work.
Apart from the obvious advantageous benefits from a company’s perspective (e.g. no benefits, insurance, varying shift work), freelancers offer invaluable work to a company’s overall business.
For one, they’re for everyone. What we mean by that is that a freelancer will have often have more than one gig going at a time. This means that that particular freelancer is gaining insight into how multiple companies work and pick up a variety of skills that can benefit your company. Whether it’s freelance writing, editing, videography, or web design, a good freelancer is able to glean from a wide array of areas in order to best serve you.
One possible area of contestation with freelance workers is availability. Depending on the relationship you have with your freelancer, it can sometimes be a challenge to juggle their availability. From a company’s perspective, freelancers are needed when necessary. From a freelancer’s perspective, being needed as necessary can be challenging to balance with other freelance work. The key is finding a happy medium for both parties.
Another benefit to having a freelancer is their flexibility. Because of their skill set, they’re often chameleons in their respective field. A good freelancer knows that the more skills and training they’ve had, the more attractive they look to prospective clients, and the more employable they become. It might benefit companies to speak with their freelancer how they can augment their work results by maximizing their skill set in various areas.
Freelancers often know that value is their brand and often take it seriously.
