Hiring the right person for the job is a difficult task. Searching for qualified candidates takes time, money, and energy - three things that you'd be better off putting back into your business. At OneTech Engineering, we help place great candidates with companies and projects that match their skills. Here are some other advantages of hiring a contractor.
There are many expenses that you will not incur if you use contractors. For example, you won't have to deal with the time and expense of employer-provided benefits, office space, and equipment. At the same time, you won't have to pay the employee's share of Social Security, Medicare, unemployment insurance, workers' compensation, and more. When you add it up, these expenses can increase your payroll costs by 20% to 30%. Most of our clients choose to have our contractors on site.
If your business has fluctuating workloads, you'll have much greater flexibility in hiring and letting go workers if those workers are independent contractors. With OneTech you can hire for a specific project or task that has a shorter term to it. You won't have to deal with the hiring and layoff process. Because we do not have true independent contractors, you can rest assured that you're working with a business that is larger than just one independent contractor. This will save you the stress of constantly searching for help.
You'll save on resources, too. Our contractors are highly experienced and are hired specific to your project, meaning that training will be minimal. Instead, you can get working on your project right away. And if things change, you can easily and efficiently scale your workers up or down without taking on unnecessary expenses.
Our clients make the final call on which contractor will be showing up to work on their projects. Because you know your business better than anyone else.
Reduced Legal Responsibility
Because employees have a wide range of rights under state and federal laws, employers can be subjected to lawsuits should one of those rights be violated. If your business doesn't carry this liability that comes with a direct hire, you can rest easier. You'll still have some legal responsibilities. The only way around that is to hire an outside consulting company – but that gets very expensive, very fast.
In the end, using OneTech will get you highly qualified professionals who are ready to start working on your project immediately. Give us a call and find out what OneTech can do for you.
