More and more companies are finding the great cost-effective benefits of using 1099 contractors. These independent contractors are not technically classified as employees of the company, however, they provide important services for companies in a wide variety of industries.
Because these contractors often take on important jobs within these companies, some businesses have found it beneficial to begin training these contractors so that they can better supply services to their particular niche.
How this benefits business
Even though a 1099 is not an actual employee of your company, you can benefit by offering them training, especially if they are providing a great deal of services for your company. The small investment made in 1099 training can equip them to provide better and faster service to your company, still at a fraction of the cost of a full time employee.
Your 1099 contractors do not have the insider information concerning your company and culture like some of your other employees have and don’t typically have the benefit of water cooler chats. Being in the loop will help them provide even greater services for your company.
Best ways to train 1099s
Most 1099 contractors work remotely, or at least are not a part of the day-to-day office atmosphere. This can make training difficult if you do not have the proper tools.
