Most state unemployment benefits will be going back to normal by September 6th, 2021, and there are some that have ended their pandemic aid early. Many business owners are eager to see whether or not this will increase the amount of talent applying for their open positions. When it comes to the technology industry there is good talent and then there is great talent. Keep on reading for advice on how to bag the best of the best tech talent for your company.
For years we have witnessed the rise of the Gig Economy and how it has taken over many full-time, permanent roles. These types of hires appear super attractive to employers because of the amount of money they save on overhead and benefits. Gig workers became accustomed to ending one job and then finding another via Fiverr, Upwork, or similar gig platforms. This worked for quite some time up until the pandemic. Many gig workers were struggling to receive their pandemic aid, some receiving it 8-12 months after the fact due to the nature of their work. Because of this, many talented gig workers are now looking for a full-time role that offers them better financial security and job stability. And Raso Solutions is making hundreds of new connections with former gig workers every day.
On the hiring side of employment, gig workers are not the best choice for technology projects that are complex and often need maintenance and tracking. Instead, Raso recommends hiring full-time employees, but that can be a lengthy process unless you have a hiring partner like Raso. We can introduce you to technology SMEs quickly, that are already vetted and tested. Many of the talented individuals we work with have worked with Raso for years and we can vouch personally for their skill and dependability.
Hiring a full-time employee for your technology business comes with many benefits. Here are our top 3:
Better Training and Oversight
Time is money, and spending all that time onboarding and training a gig worker may not be a smart investment for your business. If you plan on spending a lot of time getting your new hire up to speed, hiring a full-time employee may be the better option for you.
Cut Out Multi-Tasking
The fear of the unknown is just that; you don’t know what your gig worker is working on all the time. They may have several other clients that they’re working with, and you have no idea unless they disclose that with you. When you have a full-time employee you’re able to track their KPIs and work cohesively through projects.
As previously mentioned, you never really know how many client projects your gig worker has unless they disclose that information to you. Their focus may be on growing their clientele, not so much on your business. When you hire a full-time employee their vision is growing within your company and helping your business excel. The level of commitment they possess has a lot to do with their job stability.
Pre-pandemic, career development was not a concern to many Gig Economy workers because they felt that nothing could prevent them from finding their next gig other than themselves. Due to Covid-19, temp workers have realized that having a respectable, full-time job isn’t so bad after all. Hiring a full-time employee is a serious decision, but it could be your answer for long-term success.
