FLEXIBLE WORKING ARRANGEMENTS TO MEET PROJECT NEEDS

Halo Group provides flexible working arrangements to meet our clients’ budget and project needs. We offer the following options:

On-site

The consultant will work full time, in your offices anywhere in the U.S. While this option will be the most expensive, by working in your offices, consultants can more thoroughly engage with your team, get information quickly, efficiently interact with other departments as needed, and easily stay in tune with all changes and factors affecting a given project.

Off-site

The consultant will generally be provided with initial onsite training and orientation and then work remotely, with periodic trips to the client location on an as-needed basis. Maintaining a virtual consultant work force can help your company with retention as consultants appreciate no commute, better work-life balance. and quality of life. In addition, your choice of candidates expands and you can select specialized, highly qualified consultants specific to your needs who may not live in your local market. You will also save money by not providing office space, and many consultants prefer to work virtually.

With agile methodology and project management technology available today, managing remote resource is much easier. If you select a remote consultant, you will also save money on travel costs and gain improved productivity.
