Top Reasons to be with FAS

Asher Black

You’ve seen those top 10, top 20, top 100 lists, and we all know the numbers are arbitrary. So in this case, we’ll just jot down some key benefits, and let you add more in the forums.

For Companies Looking to Hire

  1. Hire contractors directly, but with corp to corp contracts. We handle admin, they get benefits, you get flexibility and commitment.
  2. HR Professionals: Hire back lay offs as contractors, but with a corp to corp contract, and they get full benefits like an employee (of FAS).
  3. Attract the best talent by meeting demand: Increasingly contractors need 401K & other benefits, but not the burdens of bookkeeping and payroll.
  4. It doesn’t take a union to get group benefits for contractors – benefits come with them at Free Agent Source.
  5. Build project teams without the risk of large-scale hiring or the hassle and bigger risk of staffing agencies.

For Working Professionals

  1. All the resources and benefits (e.g. health, retirement) of traditional employment, with the freedom of an independent contractor.
  2. Dump “temp” jobs, and get a fairer share of your billable rate, 100% transparency, and the benefits of an employee.
  3. Have a back office for your contract work (we do expense report mgmt, accounting),
  4. Have a corp to corp contract to open doors and land positions. Negotiate from strength.
  5. Benefits like an employee, freedom like a contractor, payment like a company.
  6. Look for contracts, not permanent employment! Why? All the benefits, none of the drawbacks. Free agents work smart not cheap.
  7. Needing a change? Look for contracts w/o quitting your day job. We’ll back you with admin, benefits, and you negotiate your freedom.
  8. Temp agency taking 50%? Our Free Agents keep about 85% of net revenue, and they have full benefits. How about you?
  9. Getting a 1099? Shouldn’t you get benefits too? Want a higher rate? You need a corp to corp contract and a back office from us.
  10. Short interview time of a temp, freedom of a contractor, negotiating power of a company.
  11. Laid Off? Bid yourself back to your former employer, with a corp to corp contract! Back to work with a better deal!
  12. Group contractors: get admin services and contract management. Bid your own clients like a corp and break free of the pack.
  13. Contractors – invoice every 2 weeks instead of every month, and let someone else do the accounting! Online expenses!
  14. Contract like a corporation without forming one yourself. We’ll be your back office, and you’ll have corp to corp clout.
  15. Giving up too much to the staffing agency? Set the billable rate yourself for 100% transparency. You keep more $$$.
  16. Can’t find a contract job? That’s because so many are corp to corp contracts. Open doors with your own C2C offers.
  17. Work for yourself. The line between contracting and self-employed disappears the moment you decide to own your own contract, with FAS as back office.
  18. Get premium rates without being tied to one company. More of the contracting pie is available for those who’ll split their hours for multiple corps.
  19. Bring your earring, goatee, or tattoo – avoid clone status. If you have to change your personality for your work, you’re in the wrong line of work.
  20. Do the work you love, satisfy your clients, and let us do everything else. FAS is like your personal ‘staffing agency’ – we really work for you.
  21. The contractor’s bundle: bookkeeping, liability, timesheet mgmt, expense reports, payroll, and 401K. How’s that for all in one?
  22. If you could double what the staffing company pays you, plus benefits, would you give us a few bucks to handle your paperwork?
  23. Traveling contractors. You fly, we write the expenses. Don’t tax your time – you’re busy enough.
  24. Get your evenings and weekends back. Tired of doing expense reports, sorting your taxes, collecting, and running a back office? Leave work at the office. Let us do it.
  25. Have a family – need security? Be an independent contractor with a corporate safety net.
