Today, many companies rely on outsourcing, freelancers, or contract workers in order to complete projects on time and in order to make a business grow. Small and medium-sized businesses, especially, often rely on contractors or freelancers in order to create better profits.
There are many advantages to hiring freelancers. They require less money and generate more real work for the effort. In most cases, you pay freelancers only for the amount of work completed. This means that you do not pay for vacation time, coffee breaks, and so forth. This can save you a great deal of money over the average employee. Additionally, freelancers usually do not require insurance, benefits, and other additional expenses that traditional employees make use of. Many companies are also finding that outsourcing some of their work to freelancers allows them to hire people for occasional work. For example, if your company requires design services only once in a while, outsourcing to a freelancer can be less expensive than going to a company for your needs or hiring a design team permanently.

At the same time, you can keep your financial department, and then any other department with sensitive information secure.
