Do you need a developer but don’t know where to start? Can’t decide whether to go for full-time or freelance developers or other resources?
Are you not a technical person and worried about how would you know if the developer is cutting corners?
Have you hired developers in the past but they couldn’t deliver results as promised?
Does any of these scenarios sound familiar?
Well, we’re here to answer all your queries! Read on.
The “gig economy” is on the rise and the HR managers are presented with more than one option to hire resources for their company. If the forecast made by Intuit is to be believed, this on-demand economy will reach 43% by the year 2020. Many small and big companies have started taking advantage of this gig economy.
If you are a hiring manager or if you handle the recruitment process of your own company, there are certain things that you need to consider or know before hiring. Will the resources understand the vision and meet the requirement of your company? Will they come under your hiring budget and not exceed it? These are some of those things.
We understand that hiring the right resources for your company is not that easy.
So, first, we’ll focus on the costs of hiring freelancers and full-time resources. After all, all you want is to hire the best resources at the minimum costs, right?
The salaries of full-time resources are generally calculated on an annual basis, agree? If you are looking for an employee who will be there for your company all year round, then full-time resources are your best bet. On the other hand, if you have a short-term project and don’t need your resources to be there for your company for more than one single project, hiring freelancers would be the right thing to do. In order to formulate the salaries of both freelancers and full-time employees, we will use the following equation:
Average hour (1790 hrs) X freelance hourly rate = Annual Salary
(Please Note: According to a study by the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development, in the year 2015, the average annual working hours of an employee in the US was 1790)
In order to make the salary comparison more specific, we’ll discuss particularly software developers in this segment.
The annual salary of software developers depends on their years of work experience. Have a look at the following data that applies to the developers with 5 years of experience:
So, here you can see how much salary a software developer can have with 5 years of working experience. We’ll focus on the median annual salary, which is, in this case, $112,921.
As you might already know, not all countries have the same pay scale for freelance developers. See the chart below:
As you can see, the hourly rates for freelance developers vary from country to country. The majority of freelancers charge between $60 and $100 per hour. So we’ll use this for our analysis.
Average hour (1790 hrs) X Freelance hourly rate = Annual Salary
Now, is it cheaper to hire freelancers than hiring full-time developers? The answer is “yes”.
Hiring full-time employees have other benefits such as stronger level of employee loyalty, higher rates of productivity, consistency with your workloads and many more.
