When you are faced with a problem, you have many alternatives for resolving it. The primary options include assigning a current employee to the task or hiring new employees to take on the assignment. However, these approaches can often bring their own problems, and it may not be the most cost-effective way to arrive at the best solution. In addition, when faced with hiring your own employees, you may not be able to find any candidates with CRC’s unique credentials and high level of expertise. Why pay for someone to go to school on you? Hire experience!
The following reasons are the most compelling for hiring CRC as your consultants and coaches:
BECAUSE CRC ARE EXPERT CONSULTANTS AND COACHES
This is the main reason to hire CRC as your consultant. Many people in an organization may be able to take on an assignment, but none can do the job as quickly and efficiently as an expert who lives and breathes the issues to be addressed every day. The end result of hiring CRC as your expert consultant and coach is an overall savings in time and money – with better results than if the assignment were handled by an employee or new hire with no experience or track record.
BECAUSE CRC, AS YOUR CONSULTANT, WORKS AS AN INDEPENDENT CONTRACTOR
When you hire CRC as your consultant, you hire an independent contractor, not an employee. This has all sorts of implications. A consultant works closely with the client, but requires no direct supervision that employees require performing comparable tasks not to mention the large savings in taxes and benefits.
BECAUSE CRC, AS YOUR CONSULTANT, IS OBJECTIVE AND IMPARTIAL
CRC brings a fresh point of view to an organization that may have lost its perspective. In many organizations, especially where staff are afraid to speak out, only an outsider can do the job. Only an outside consultant can clearly see the broken organizational infrastructure systems and dysfunctional management behaviors that disable the firm. CRC makes recommendations that break through to the decision makers who most need to hear them.
BECAUSE CRC, AS YOUR CONSULTANT, DEDICATES TIME NECESSARY TO RESOLVE THESE ISSUES
Time is a precious element among an organization’s existing staff. CRC is committed to the success of the firm and dedicates the time to focusing on the system until the work is completed and success attained.
BECAUSE CRC, AS YOUR CONSULTANT, IS A FLEXIBLE RESOURCE
CRC makes itself available to clients on a moment’s notice. If an organization had to hire someone new to take on an assignment, it could spend months to place ads, perform interviews and reference checks, make a final selection, and bring a new employee aboard. To hire CRC as your consultant, all you need to do is pick up the telephone.
BECAUSE WITH CRC AS YOUR CONSULTANT, THERE IS NO LONG-TERM COMMITMENT
If a new hire has completed the project, the organization finds itself in the position of creating a new job for that person. With CRC as your consultant, once the project is done, CRC leaves. There is no two-week notice, no termination, no layoff, no severance pay. CRC does develop long-term relationships with its clients, but only when the client desires the long-term relationship.
BECAUSE THE PRICE IS RIGHT
When you tally up the TRUE costs of hiring an employee or trying to take on a task yourself versus bringing CRC in as your consultant to perform the same task, going with CRC is more cost advantageous. There is no outlay for health insurance, vacation time, 401(k) plans or other benefits with CRC as your consultant.
