The modern workforce in companies is evolving at an accelerated pace, where several firms have started recruiting freelancers. Freelancers are not committed for the long-term to your company and are self-employed. One of the primary reasons for this shift in trend is due to their cost-effectiveness, flexibility to access top-tier talents, nature of work, and diversity compared to full-time employees.
Employee engagement is becoming one of the key indicators in determining workplace satisfaction. Employees today want to be truly involved in their work and committed to the organization they work for. Research also suggests that more than 90% of business executives believe that the performance of engaged employees is far better, leading to better business outcomes.
A study conducted in 2017 showed that almost three out of four employers were affected by a bad hire. That only strengthens the fact that bringing in the wrong person for a job can have a huge impact on the business. A surprisingly high number of start-ups learn this the hard way.
Not only employers but start-up employees also figure that the job is not what they expected soon after they join in.
