It takes time to find the right people to work with, whether you’re hiring someone for your business or you’re looking for fellow freelancers to form a team with. You need to be able to get along with the people you choose, and you all need to be able to work well together. It can be difficult to make the leap if it’s your first time working with others on your own projects, but there are some things to keep in mind.
Matching Skills and Experience
First, you’re sure to want to know that someone has the key skills and experience required to do the job. This might mean taking a good look at their CV or portfolio to see how they match up to what you’re looking for. Of course, it also makes sense to talk to them about how they think they’re a match.
Fitting the Company Culture
Whether you have a fully-fledged company or you’re just a single freelancer taking on some help, you need people who have shared values and attitude. Fitting into the culture you have built around your business is essential for anyone you work with.
Consider the Group Dynamics
Are you looking for a number of different people to work with? If you’re trying to build a super team who will all work together, you should think about the dynamics of the group and how they will fit together. A team that works well together will produce better results, have fewer conflicts and could be more creative and productive too.
