If you ask me, contractors get a bad rep. While utilizing these non-traditional hires is relatively common, they’re sometimes treated as an afterthought instead of a team member like standard employees. That’s usually the first mistake, but I’ll save that rant for another post… Because contractors aren’t full-time employees, likely work fewer hours weekly, and work with multiple organizations, it’s easy to see them as less loyal or even as a risk to your nonprofit. However, doing so is looking at them through the wrong lens. In this post, I’ll explain why your organization needs contractors. Of course, take this advice as you’d like, but with over twenty years in this sector and working with more than a few contractors myself, I think I have something to offer. Okay.
