In Episode 8, Jashar is joined by special co-host Dr. Brooke Azie-Rentz to discuss a topic that comes up frequently in our profession. Specifically, that is whether to classify staff as Contractors or Employees? Often this question is discussed in legal and tax related terms, but there are larger overarching questions at play that we delve into during the show.
Primarily: How do you foster an organization of commitment and collaboration, rather than one of selfishness and distance?
And how does the way you talk about your staff matter to that question?
We get into the legal underpinnings of employment status in Washington State, and also the esoteric musings of leadership theory as we explore the difference between these two types of staff.
The answer to this and more in this week’s episode of The Grind!
Episode 8: Contractor v Employee…that is the question.
