Small Business owners – how to work well with freelancers

With the ongoing shift towards employers using freelancers / contractors instead of employing PAYE workers and employees in the current uncertain climate, we look here at how small business owners can get the best out of their relationship with freelancers, for the benefit of both parties.

Many freelancers and employers don’t like a written contract of any description but we would recommend it to ensure clarity of what has been agreed so there can be no confusion later. A contract does not have to be long and complicated and The HR Kiosk can provide you what you need!

Throughout their assignment with you, ensure you communicate with them throughout their work, have regular briefings to see where they are at with your project and any changes that have occurred from their or your point of view and if this affects the timescale for completion. Ensure you stay on track of their progress – you’re the boss, and let them know immediately if there is something you are not happy with. Remember, however, they are specialists so don’t try to over-manage them, they may give you valuable advice. Also, integrate them into your existing team and ensure the team know what the freelancer is there to do. So, hopefully success all round! Freelancers – anything you would add to make sure a small business can get the most out of you?
