When you’re building a startup, it can be expensive to hire a full-fledged team right away. Also when you provide services, and if you have all employees in your organization, it will hurt your already tight margins. Besides, you need to understand correctly your hiring and firing needs in the short and long run as both hiring and firing are cumbersome and costly efforts.
A hybrid team combination helps you to utilize your human resources in a more cost-effective and efficient manner.
Case1: You need 5 developers to complete the project. You can hire 1 Sr. Developer and 1 full-stack developer, 1 UI/UX developer as permanent employees, and 2 freelance developers - for front-end developer and back-end developer.
Case2: You need 3 content writers in your organization. You can hire 1 Sr. Content writer as a permanent employee and 2 freelance writers.
Case3: You need 5 business development persons in your organization. You can hire 1 BDM and 1 BDE as permanent employees, and 3 business development persons like lead generation experts, email campaigners etc as freelancers.
As seen in the above example, a hybrid team combination helps you to utilize your human resources in a more cost-effective and efficient manner.
