Is motivation of external employees the same as motivation of regular employees?
During May 2017, we made a quick miniresearch in preparation for a presentation for one of our clients. It was focused on freelancers´ motivating factors for cooperation with the companies.
The survey was attended by exactly 60 respondents, 55 of them had an experience with the external cooperation. Nearly 60% of respondent freelancers have more than five years of experience with an external collaboration.
Among most important motivating factors for freelancers to externally cooperate with companies were payment morality, flexibility, and the quality of relationships. Less important is for example the amount of financial rewards (which is usually more important for regular employees).
