Many business owners encounter a choice between hiring a permanent in-house employee for a new position or retaining the services of a software development consultancy to meet their needs. This is rarely a simple choice, and business owners have multiple factors to consider before making a decision. Each option has unique concerns in terms of cost, so business owners need to carefully analyze their operations and cash flow before committing to one or another. At Fairway Technologies, we understand the importance of making confident decisions that will impact your business in the future, so consider the actual costs of both before making your decision.

A business that can’t grow is a business that won’t survive. Some company owners put off hiring new employees as long as possible to maintain operating costs, while others pounce on the first opportunity at hiring top talent. It’s crucial to strike a balance between these two methods; you don’t want to jump the gun and hire someone who will not work out in the long run, but you also don’t want to be too conservative in your hiring and miss out on a potentially amazing new team member.
