How To Work With Freelancers: The Complete Guide


Everything you need to know about how to work with freelancers, from onboarding to invoices.

According to the Freelancer’s Union, nearly one in three working Americans is now an independent worker. That’s close to 54 million people, and there’s no shortage of demand. As of 2016, 92+ percent of enterprises cite non-traditional staffing as a moderate to vital part of their overall corporate strategy.

Freelancing offers workers with in-demand skills the kind of autonomy and flexibility they can’t get from full-time employment, along with the ability to negotiate for the best rates on a project-by-project, client-by-client basis. Working with freelancers allows organizations to tap into talent on an on-demand basis and avoid the high costs associated with bringing on full-time workers.

In this guide, you’ll learn exactly how to work with freelancers, including how to find them, how to onboard and pay them, and how to motivate them to do their best work for your company.
