Once again we would like to say a huge thank you to all those who afforded the time to complete our recent contractor survey, your time and feedback is really appreciated!
Whilst over 70% of you stated that income is the main appeal of contracting, many of you also claimed that ensuring continuity of work and managing salary, expenses and tax liabilities is of concern. 52% of you enjoy the flexibility and variety of being a contractor, however 40% stated that ensuring the continuity of contracts is the major issue.
So you know that we’ve taken your feedback seriously we’ve already implemented a few changes.
- Over 50% would be interested in attending a FREE seminar that relates to specific industry topics – check out one of the other stories for the ‘Build Your Wealth Seminar’ on the 12th November at 6pm
- We’ve introduced a new Contractor Referral Scheme where you get rewarded up to $300 for referring your friends and colleagues!
- We’ve introduced a Contractor Offer page on our website – designed to get you discounts at some of Australia’s leading firms. Retailers, Financial Brokers, Mortgage Brokers…. tell us what more you’d like to see!
- More regular contact… On top of the introduction of the quarterly newsletter, you’ll start to see ‘news flashes’ and 3-4 weeks from the end of your contract you’ll be getting a call from one of our friendly client services team (Sallyanne, Jenna or Greta) as a reminder that your current contract is coming up for extension time…
Over the next few months we’ll be holding regular seminars about the topics that are of most relevant to you. Your responses show that Salary & Expenses, Tax, Superannuation, Financial Planning, Immigration, Interviewing and recruitment advice along with hearing about other contractor experiences.
Watch out for more future changes!
