There are many benefits for companies employing consultants. A consultant’s experience means a minimal learning curve without the delays, cost or long term risk of recruiting extra staff. There are minimal overheads and non productive costs as the company only pays for the time worked on the project. Consultants can also produce quick results when projects are delayed by staff shortages.
