Contractors and Employees – What’s the Difference?

Growing your team is an integral element to think about within your small business. Depending upon your needs and goals, growing with employees or contractors (or a mix of both!) might be the right fit, so it’s incredibly important to understand the differences between employee and contractor arrangements. Today, we’ll talk about each type of work relationship and how they affect your business. 

In this episode, we’ll cover: 

  • Your level of control in both contractor and employee relationships 
  • How each party defines the relationship in these different work arrangements
  • Creating a benefits package for employees
