The use of freelancers or Talent as a Service (TaaS) is gaining popularity for a number of reasons as businesses face new challenges and top talent seek more control over the way they work.
If you’re considering using freelancers or independent consultants on your next project, here are some of the reasons why Talentdesk24-7 talent pool should be your first port of call:
- They have guts
Going it alone or even just offering one’s skills directly to clients (and not through a company) takes a lot of confidence – and self-assurance. It requires being completely accountable for your own work – and fully backing yourself and your skills. You have to be sure you can deliver at a standard that’s worth paying for – because if you don’t, you’ll feel the consequences in your pocket immediately.
- They’re the best of the best
Independent consultants and freelancers are the very best at what they do. They don’t have the option of hiding behind a large firm or team – and they don’t need to. They take full credit – and responsibility – for what they do because it’s all their own. It’s their own reputation on the line with every job they complete, so quality is a given.
- They’re cost-effective
Talentdesk24-7 itself was built using the expertise of a pool of trusted freelancers. In fact, everything from our CI to our web development and copywriting is the handiwork of freelancers who we trusted with our brand. Even this blog has been copy-edited by a freelancer. To have so many skills in-house would cost close to a million rand a year.
Had that been our only option, you probably wouldn’t be reading this right now because we’d still be trying to do everything ourselves. Having talent available on demand without the overheads associated with full-time employees is a game changer.
- They’re available when you need them
Do requirements in your project teams often change? Of course. And how predictable are your budgets? Not at all? We know the struggle.
As customer needs change as quickly as projects come in, accessing the right skills at the right time (and handling the red tape associated with new hires) is a major challenge. That’s why we built Talentdesk24-7 – to give you access to the best talent, on demand, with quality service delivery you can trust.
Are you starting your own small business? We understand you need to focus on sales and decision making. Let our expert freelancers help build your brand, handle your financial admin and prep you for your next big pitch. Talentdesk24-7 is your own start-up kit just waiting to be tapped into.
