READY • SET • GO Consulting
01. SAVE TIME & MONEY
Businesses discover they can save thousands of dollars a week by hiring consultants when they are needed rather than hiring full-time employees. They also can save additional money because they don't have to pay benefits to the consultants they hire. Even though a consultant's fees are generally higher than an employee's salary, over the long haul it makes good economic sense to hire a consultant.
This is where it pays not only to be really good in your chosen field but to have a track record that speaks for itself. Consultants are called on to teach many skills. Of course, it's the consultant's task to keep up with developments in their field of expertise so they're always ready to teach new clients what they need to stay competitive.
Sometimes employees are too close to a problem inside an organization to identify it. A good consultant provides an objective, fresh viewpoint without worrying about what people in the organization might think about the results and how they were achieved.
04. CATALYST FOR CHANGE
No one likes change, especially corporate America. But sometimes change is needed,
and a consultant may be brought in to implement the changes. A benefit to the company is that the consultant can do things without worrying about the corporate culture, employee morale, or other issues that get in the way when an organization is trying to institute change.
05. FRESH START & RE-LAUNCH
A consultant can bring new life to an organization. Coming up with ideas that work for an established business or making sure a new business gain clientele are key factors. At one time or another, most businesses need someone to administer "first aid" to get things rolling again.
