The difference between a Remote Worker & An Employee?

Are you or your small business overloaded with administrative tasks?
Is your paperwork taking up precious time?
Is your to-do list never-ending?
Do you need somebody to streamline your systems to make them more efficient?

If you answered yes to the above questions, chances are that you need either an employee OR a REMOTE WORKER / FREELANCER.

But what is the difference, you say.
Ok, let’s see. If you have a workload that is regular and so great that it requires an in-house, full-time person, you are probably better off hiring an employee to manage your office on a daily basis. You get control over the person’s schedule, verify how the work is done, double-check all the outcomes etc.

If on the other hand, you have a need for irregular work, short-term projects, or simply don’t have space or budget for an employee, working with a Remote Worker  / Freelancer will absolutely offer you the very best, convenient and strategic alternative in meeting your administrative support needs.

While Remote Worker  / Freelancer do a lot of work that is similar to what an employee would do, it’s important to keep in mind that there are some major differences about the working relationship to keep in mind:

  • You are the client to a Remote Worker  / Freelancer, not the employer.
  • You won’t be managing or supervising her, or the work, in any way;
  • A Remote Worker / Freelancer  runs her own business and sets her own fees, hours, policies and procedures;
  • A Remote Worker / Freelancer  works remotely, using the latest technology to collaborate with you
  • A Remote Worker  / Freelancer might live in another time zone and come from another culture
  • A Remote Worker  / Freelancer depends on clear communication in order to be able to work independently
