Managing Contractors and Temporary Employees

Welcome to the emerging landscape of contractors and temps (USA STANDARDS)

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.

* Free E-certificate (No additional cost for E-certificates)

FAQs

What does study method mean?

Study method describes the format in which the course will be delivered. At reed.co.uk courses are delivered in a number of ways, including online courses, where the course content can be accessed online remotely, and classroom courses, where courses are delivered in person at a classroom venue.

What are CPD hours/points?

CPD stands for Continuing Professional Development. If you work in certain professions or for certain companies, your employer may require you to complete a number of CPD hours or points, per year. You can find a range of CPD courses on reed.co.uk, many of which can be completed online.

What is a ‘regulated qualification’?

A regulated qualification is delivered by a learning institution which is regulated by a government body. In England, the government body which regulates courses is Ofqual. Ofqual regulated qualifications sit on the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF), which can help students understand how different qualifications in different fields compare to each other. The framework also helps students to understand what qualifications they need to progress towards a higher learning goal, such as a university degree or equivalent higher education award.

What is an ‘endorsed’ course?

An endorsed course is a skills based course which has been checked over and approved by an independent awarding body. Endorsed courses are not regulated so do not result in a qualification - however, the student can usually purchase a certificate showing the awarding body’s logo if they wish. Certain awarding bodies - such as ABC Awards and TQUK - have developed endorsement schemes as a way to help students select the best skills based courses for them.
