Australian businesses are poised to offer bonuses and pay rises, and though the resources sector is set to lead the pay-rise pack, other sectors aren’t far behind according to a new report.

    Contractors are not usncetivined to roll over their contracts, in fact their entire credibity is based upon their ability to get the job done within the achievable expectations of their CLIENT. It may surprise the author but good contractors have customer satisfaction at the top of their priorities.If solution improvement is a requirement, call it out. More often than not the mandate of the contractor is to execute a scope defined by a consultant.A lazy manager is nothing else but a lazy manager, and there are many of these embedded in the permanent workforce.Why not get rid of contractors? Businesses need to have a holistic view of their resource needs to deliver on the goals and objectives. A mix if full time, part time pernament and contract resource pools is common, it is the management of the mix that is key. As tragic as it is how would corporates make the last quarter head count tweaks without having contractors to terminate temporarily?Outsourcing is a legitimate part of the mix, but the contracts associated with outsourcing carry rigidity and unefficiency too. Contractors are the more efficient way of outsourcing one off work packages.The fact is that poor and lazy managers are the wasteful layer of organisatons. Keep them focussed, efficient and effective, and you they will drive the right resource mix for the business.
