At Prowess, we get this question a lot, “I need talent now, but I have no idea how many hours a week?” When you’re in the thick of it, it’s hard to recognize you need help and even harder to estimate how much time you’ll need.
We get it. It is difficult. So Prowess built a contractor time estimator to help you break down your talent needs, responsibilities and necessary meetings to arm you with crucial information when it comes to planning and budgeting.
How it works
- Need a fractional operations role, but not sure how many hours a week, you’ll need. See our contractor time estimator here.
- Take the 3 min quiz to break down when, where and what you’ll need this role to tackle in a given week.
- Receive an estimated hour amount of assistance you’ll need a week.
How this helps
This tool can help you understand your hiring needs now and in the future.
Say you complete the estimator and you need someone 30 hours a week. Chances are it may be more advantageous for you and your business to hire a full time employee than a contractor, as that role will continue to gain responsibilities and you’ll be at 40 hours a week before you know it.
you complete the estimator and you need 5 hours a week. Could you re-prioritize your existing teams’ responsibilities to delegate this to a current employee? Test that for a month or two and then make a decision if you need to find more support.
Whichever you decide, Prowess can help source the perfect fit from our diverse talent pool Why We Do Itand EQ-based matching technology whether you need just 5 hours or a full time employee. Our goal is for you to feel armed with that knowledge before you start your hiring hunt.
