Time to Hire?

Want to expand your company but not ready to hire a slew of new employees? You’re not alone. Many small businesses are not hiring due to associated costs. About 65 percent of small businesses cite healthcare as a main reason for not hiring staff, according to a recent Wells Fargo/Gallup Small Business Index.

However, if you need help, there are cost-effective ways to increase your workforce.

Freelancers, especially when it comes to temporary support, can bring valuable, creative insight to your business. Check out workers and their qualifications here.

For another short-term employment option, consider hiring an independent contractor, who is paid like a freelancer – but works for a longer period of time. Make sure you follow IRS tax codes when hiring, by adhering to these guidelines.

Project-based employees offer even greater flexibility as they can work for your company for specific times for specialized purposes. Active Staffing provides workers in areas such as industry, retail and clerical fields.
