Building Trust Between Your Employees And Freelancers

Using external experts to accomplish tasks needed by companies on a temporary basis while more people are freelancing to do this work. Companies should take steps to ensure productivity doesn’t suffer if there is mistrust between employees and contractors. Keep an open line of communication, have employees help plan how the contractors will fit into projects and have management work on blending the teams. besides contracting for expertise, male sure the contractors are personable and can get along with employees. Also be sure there is a good onboarding process for freelancers even if that means an orientation to the company.

Key Takeaways:

  • Blending of internal and external talent can have huge benefits to the organization, but creates special challenges that most managers aren’t prepared to deal with.
  • If employees feel that they are involved, their input is reflected in the vision, they are much more likely to support it.
  • Help managers get better at identifying and bridging the divide between internal employees and external professionals.

“More companies and nonprofits are turning to external experts, on a project or temporary basis, to tap into unique skill sets and experience that they otherwise might not be able to access, afford, or locate in their market.”
