The Other Side of the Coin — The Employer Perspective
Ever wonder what a freelancer truly brings to the table from a company’s point of view?
Well, here are five points to change that mindset on what value you truly bring to your employer as a freelancer.
1. A breath of fresh air
Let’s face it, no matter how great the team, we tend to get to know each other after a while and become, well . . . not unlike a married couple going to the same vacation house year in year out.
Now imagine that same couple taking the plunge and booking a cruise, or just going to another destination. That thrill they feel at being somewhere new, that energy and verve. That’s you as a freelancer coming into a new company. Because everyone gets the best of both worlds.
You get to work with a well-established team that knows each other inside out, and they get the external perspective provided by someone not attached to the daily issues of the office. You can essentially make or break office culture by noticing things they are already used to and improving on them.
And that’s not to underestimate the new ideas and different points of view you bring with you when it comes to solving problems. Win-win. And if the team sucks, you can always move on and are not stuck anywhere.
2. Always giving and doing your best
As a freelancer, you are interested in completing whatever you were assigned as quickly and efficiently as humanly possible without compromising on quality. But unlike the long-term employees of the company, your Mondays do not start by socializing around the water cooler. Quite the opposite in fact, as you’re busy catching up with your deadlines.
This energy you bring to the table is just what the doctor ordered for the company that just hired you. They can focus on the long term, while you are able to attend to what is most pressing. This relieves tension from the team.
A well-established team that has worked together for years is a great thing, but with a little bit of extra fuel — which you now provide — it becomes even greater. Businesses and employers know this, and are willing to pay your worth.
3. Razor-sharp focus
While this ties in closely with the above, it also merits its own point, because this cannot be stressed enough. You have been brought in for one specific project. This is your mission and commitment to the company you were hired by. Therefore you are free to concentrate on this task alone and be as detailed as the project calls for.
Oftentimes in companies people have to wear many hats and have to run different projects at once. All too frequently, something falls to the wayside. With your attention to detail and ability to focus, this is no longer the case. You have one mission and one mission only, enabling you to stay razor-focused on this task. Everyone can focus on their own task, and everyone’s happier for it. And with great happiness comes even greater productivity.
4. Flexibility is a plus
A huge plus at that. Teams have set their schedules and outlined their projects weeks, sometimes months, in advance. This is what they do, and a good team will run like a well-oiled machine. But, like with any machine, sometimes a little help is needed. Something needs fixing, something comes up. With tasks mapped out and pretty much set in stone, this becomes a huge burden on any company. Enter the freelancer.
You are able to take the burden off their shoulders. Companies can bring you in when you are most needed, knowing they will get nothing but the best.
With CryptoTask especially, your reputation — stored on the blockchain — is right at their fingertips, so they can hire you right away without waiting for confirmation emails of how good your work is and the profit it brings to the company. And as we all know, that is beyond priceless.
5. Staying with the times
It’s easy to forget how much — and how quickly — the world changes when you are working with a team that has been together for a while. Going by the old adage of “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it,” it is easy to forget to update, or to look into new ways. It is also time-consuming to train staff and employees.
A freelancer can circumvent all that by bringing in their own work method, their own perspective, their own point of view. Much as we like our routines, we don’t like to stagnate. And as a freelancer dipping in and out of different jobs, you are the guarantee that it won’t ever happen.
So there you have it. If ever you have a doubt that companies won’t like you beyond your ability to provide cheaper labor, keep these five points in mind. And if you have anything else to add, we love to hear from you, more soc if it’s your own experience with CryptoTask.
Here’s to your success!
