If you are a business owner, one of the most important decisions that you will make will be about hiring. Getting people on board is a crucial step as you scale. But hold on, it’s not as simple as hiring somebody and paying them for their work. In a labor market that is complex and competitive, there are many employee types to select for your business needs. 

Here are examples of employee types: 

Full-time Employees

Part-time Employees

Temporary Employees


Seasonal Employees

Tenured Employees

Leased Employees

Job-share Employees

Apprentice Employee


Contingent Workers

Strictly speaking, contingent workers are not considered employees of a company. They provide services on a short-term arrangement such as a per-project basis and are not entitled to employee benefits.

Independent Contractors




Each organization is unique. The hiring structure and type of employees may differ from one business to another. When looking to hire employees or contingent workers, employers must consider the impact it will make not just on the business budget but also on the overall company culture and work environment.
