How to Hire Freelancers for Your Departments Training Needs

If you're looking to provide your departments with the best possible training, then you're probably considering hiring a freelance training contractor. But what exactly does that mean? And how can you ensure that you hire the right person for the job? In this article, we'll answer some of the most common questions about hiring freelancers for your departments' training needs.

Types of Training Needs

Departments within a company may have a variety of training needs, depending on their specific roles and responsibilities. Some of the most common types of training needs include:

  • Leadership and Management Training - This type of training is designed to help managers and leaders develop the skills they need to be effective in their roles. This can include training on communication, delegation, conflict resolution, and more.
  • Product and Technical Training - This type of training is designed to help employees understand the products and technologies they work with on a daily basis. This can include training on software programs, hardware, and other technical tools.
  • Soft Skills Training - Soft skills are the personal attributes that enable someone to interact effectively with others. This type of training can include communication skills, teamwork, emotional intelligence, and more.
  • Compliance Training - Compliance training is designed to ensure that employees understand company policies and procedures, as well as legal and regulatory requirements.

Types of Training Deliverables

When hiring a freelance training contractor, it's important to understand the different types of training deliverables that may be available. Some common types of training deliverables include:

  • E-Learning Modules - These are self-paced online courses that can be completed at the learner's convenience.
  • Classroom Training - This type of training is delivered in-person, usually in a classroom or conference room setting.
  • Webinars - Webinars are live online events that allow learners to interact with the trainer in real-time.
  • Training Manuals - These are printed or digital materials that provide learners with information and guidance on a particular topic.

Types of Training Topics

The topics covered in training can vary widely depending on the needs of the department. Some common training topics for departments include:

  • Leadership and Management - This can include topics like communication, delegation, and conflict resolution.
  • Customer Service - This can include topics like active listening, empathy, and problem-solving.
  • Technical Skills - This can include topics like software programs, hardware, and other technical tools.
  • Soft Skills - This can include topics like communication skills, teamwork, and emotional intelligence.

Types of Training Roles

When it comes to hiring a freelance training contractor, there are a variety of roles that may be required. Some common training roles include:

  • Instructional Designer - This person is responsible for designing the overall structure and content of the training.
  • Trainer - This person is responsible for delivering the training to learners.
  • Technical Writer - This person is responsible for creating training manuals and other written materials.
  • Project Manager - This person is responsible for overseeing the entire training project, from start to finish.

Examples of Training Done Well

There are countless examples of companies that have done an excellent job with their training programs. One standout example is Google's Googleplex campus, where employees have access to a wide range of training programs, from coding classes to yoga sessions. Another great example is Zappos, which offers new employees a four-week training program that includes classroom training, job-shadowing, and more.

Hiring a Freelance vs. Full-Time Training Contractor

When it comes to hiring a training contractor, you have two main options: freelance or full-time. There are benefits and drawbacks to both options. Hiring a freelance training contractor can be a cost-effective solution, as you only pay for the specific project or deliverable. Freelancers are also often highly specialized in their areas of expertise, which can be an advantage if you need a very specific type of training. On the other hand, hiring a full-time training contractor can provide more stability and continuity in your training programs. Full-time contractors can also provide ongoing support and coaching to employees, which can be invaluable for their development.

Ultimately, the decision between freelance and full-time will depend on your specific needs and budget. But regardless of which option you choose, it's important to ensure that you hire the right person for the job. Look for someone with a proven track record of success in your industry and with the specific type of training you need.
