In this fast-paced world, it is expected to have a fast-paced life. The work culture has also embraced the fast living, the race towards better results, lower costs etc. It has become very hard for companies to find good quality employees, train them, invest in them – and then keep them.
Pros and cons of project-based work
The world economy is fluctuating and so are the available job posts. Technology has allowed people to weight their possibilities, explore new opportunities and essentially figure out what is it that they want to do. Project-based work has allowed companies to employ people who they believe are quality workers and give them a chance to prove it. This type of employment has a lot of advantages for the employees themselves, but also for the companies. You can let yourself try out a company, for a period, working on a project, and then see whether you fit, if you like the working atmosphere etc.
Another great thing about project-based work is that you can do it from the comfort of your home and save a lot on commute and food. While this principle of work can help companies bring very targeted expertise and boost the productivity of their current employees, these hires can also bring ‘fresh blood’ to the team. On the other hand, it may be difficult to find a good short-term employee, as it is very hard to determine the quality of the worker before they start working for you.
