Those crazy millennials are up to it again. First, avocado toast. Now, changing the face of the economy and the nature of employment. What shenanigans will they engage in next?
Hiring reliable freelancers, also known as 1099 employees and independent contractors (ICs), is quickly becoming the new normal for many companies in a variety of industries. In fact, you've probably hired a freelancer or two in the past yourself — or at least considered it.
But in order to build a solid foundation with members of this growing workforce and utilize them to their full potential, your company must learn to onboard them properly.
This quick guide is designed to be a comprehensive overview of how 1099 employees differ from full-time employees and how to conduct the onboarding process effectively. Let's get started.
Employee Self Service (ESS) is an available feature in most modern HRIS (Human Resources Information Systems) and allows employees to handle many HR related tasks on their own, minimizing the workload of busy HR admins. We wrote about this last week, here: Simplifying Employee Onboarding: How ESS Revolutionizes Company Productivity.
When using ESS software, like HR Cloud for payroll, specifically with ADP, it helps simplify the payment process, making this traditionally tedious, time-consuming and error prone task a breeze for your business!
Managing the on-boarding process of new employees is one of the many responsibilities under the Human Resources umbrella. And while it's a much needed and important aspect of any business, it's also very time consuming.
Thankfully, using the right employee self-service (ESS) software has made it possible to onboard your new hires quicker and easier than ever before, allowing your HR department to supercharge their productivity.
