Employers want to get their job done without any additional responsibility where online job platforms come into help. Through these platforms different overhead burdens like medical, insurance, holiday facilities are not to be in the card of employers. Even people are loving online jobs to free up themselves from time bound jobs under strict office place policy. They love to do work at home as they like. The trend can be distinctly be marked from different platform like odesk.com, freelance.com etc.

When hiring, you must test them first in order to know each applicant’s full potential at work. This will help you reduce the risk of hiring a person who is not capable for the job that cannot be seen through resume and interviews only. Another good thing to do is don’t just stay focus on one are when hiring, which can miss you great opportunities of hiring competent contractors for the job.

I think that the benefits of flexible working and the opportunity to reduce costs are powerful incentives for everyone, imagine the SME’s that operate online.
True, more specialized sites like 99designs.com might be more efficient for design jobs but personally i prefer the choices that bigger sites, like www.peopleperhour.com, offer me. But still that is personal.
I just wanted to say that for those that still consider the possibility of outsourcing to online freelancers, not to. Just pick one, you can find reviews everywhere, and start outsourcing!

No worries about vacations, sick leave, health insurance, unemployment insurance, Workman’s Comp, severance and the “contractor” has to cover 100% of their withholding.

That’s not a problem as long as the contractor can charge enough to cover those expenses along with the expenses of purchasing and maintaining their own equipment. Unfortunately, the current conditions make it difficult for a contractor to do that even if the contractor understands what his or her true overhead is.

In addition, employers need to be wary: a large number of employers (and contractors) don’t understand there are certain conditions that must be met in determining whether a person is an employee or an independent contractor – and it’s not as simple as signing a contract. The IRS and state employment agencies can come back and levy hefty fines and tax bills on employers who cross the line.

In that sense 99designs.com is better business model for SMEs. I guess, still the better business model is try with small offshore companies like us. Thanks.
