When it comes to advancing a business to the next level, the key component is people. The next stage for one company might be an IPO, while for another it could be making it’s very first sale. While the specific objectives required to advance the company will vary, every advancement starts with getting the right individuals in place.
The problem is that finding good, reliable people is very challenging. It’s even more difficult when the company is met with budget and geographical constraints that limit their choices. The expense of hiring employees in today’s economic environment means that more and more companies are choosing to hire freelancers instead.
Freelance workers offer significant savings by eliminating hiring costs and offering lower rates. These individuals often perform their freelance work part-time in the evenings after their normal day job with no limit to the number of clients on their roster. In many cases this results in freelancers who dozens of clients, a large backlog of work and insufficient time to meet their commitments. This presents a considerable problem when attempting to use freelancers for critical business tasks. Trusting an individual who is overworked, overbooked and is not concentrated on the objectives of a single business is a recipe for disaster.
There had to be a better way.
We spoke with friends, colleagues, clients and industry leaders to learn more about the staffing challenges they were facing. Amidst all of the feedback, one common theme resonated universally. Businesses needed a way to hire people who were dedicated to their businesses, without hiring employees and without signing long-term contracts.
We went to work and pioneered a game changing business model.
In 2018, Consulting Warehouse unveiled a completely new way of hiring resources. For the first time companies could hire dedicated full-time consultants with the click of a button, no contract required. Through an innovative website, Consulting Warehouse began offering businesses a way to quickly find the resources they needed across an expansive number of specialties.
