Overview

Managing Contractors and Temporary Employees

Welcome to the emerging landscape of contractors and temps

A contractor, or temporary employee (temp), is anyone you ask to do work for you who is not an employee.

There are many motivations for a business to hire temporarily as they choose to remain flexible in an uncertain economy. Managers hire contract workers to keep costs down as, unlike a full-time employee, contractors aren’t paid a regular salary or benefits. Also, in terms of flexibility or staff or skill shortage, for example, contractors are available when and where you need them. Or, perhaps extra resources are required to complete an urgent project.

With this course provided by Global Edulink, one of the UK’s leading training providers, you’ll discover that contractors and temporary employees offer managers a variety of unique solutions as well as presenting unique challenges. Learn how to incorporate these dedicated professionals into your strategic plan to maximise their effectiveness and that of your business.

This course teaches you how to manage your contractors, temporary employees, and contingent workers, such as vetting them carefully, providing them with an orientation of your company, and providing them with an adequate payment plan. The course also gives guidelines on providing clear goals and instructions on what you require them to do and how to do it, and setting clear expectations that are followed up with clear communication and feedback at quality checkpoints. You’ll examine the legal pitfalls concerned and, finally, look at how best to work with temporary agencies.

Upon successful completion of the course, you’ll become familiar with the emerging landscape of hiring contractors which many businesses are now adopting, and understand how to effectively get the best out of contractors and temporary employees.
