Independent Worker

With TalentWave by your side you can focus on delivering exceptional project results, we handle all the business details. . .

TalentWave is Your Passport to Independence

Free agents are leading the charge into the new world of work. As an independent worker, you know establishing a legal working relationship with an enterprise client can be complicated and keep you from doing the work you love. TalentWave offers a better way.

Our enterprise clients rely on freelancers, consultants, and independent contractors, all of which make up what is now being called the “independent workforce.” Worker misclassification and co-employment risks introduced by these non-agency resources remain a serious problem that these organizations must deal with. This is why they retain TalentWave to help structure and manage the working relationship.

Strategic Issues for Independent Professionals

Free agents face a number of strategic issues when onboarding with a new client, such as:

  • Defining and finalizing the SOW for the project they will be working on
  • Getting a contract in place that protects them and also defines all the legal and financial aspects of the working relationship with the client
  • Ensuring their ability to start working on the project as quickly as possible
  • Establishing an easy process for invoicing time, expenses, and milestones
  • Gaining access to health and wellness benefits (medical, vision, dental, life, retirement)
  • Accurate and predictable payments for services rendered
  • Safeguarding their ability to operate independently, while providing clients with the peace that comes from knowing a free agent is not creating extra risk for them
