In a recent survey conducted by Brigad among the community of Talents using the platform, we found that almost 50% of self-employed professionals want to receive more feedback to help develop their skills and, therefore, work more shifts.
There are now plenty of solutions and concrete ways for self-employed professionals to develop their careers and increase their skills.
Having visibility on career progression & getting qualitative feedback from clients are the most important things that stood out when we asked Talents how to help them to grow.
Why? You have flexibility and control over your finances and you are your own boss. Getting feedback on your work to improve is vital to work more and therefore, more income.
Career progression is key for people who decide to become self-employed. We talk a lot about how employees have regular performance reviews and the frequent opportunity to improve and progress in their career. Therefore, Talents, who are their own boss, deserve to also have the tools to progress & get constructive and critical feedback on their performance.
On top of recognising where you can improve, asking for feedback from clients also increases your chances of being whitelisted by businesses. It demonstrates your ethic and your desire to progress and, if they whitelist you, you’ll get more shifts.
