This time, we conducted a survey on freelance full-commitment awareness among 105 freelancers with an annual income of 8 million yen or more.
64.8% of freelancers are doing business with multiple companies, and about 15% of them answered that they are considering making a full commitment to one company in the future. In addition, it is clear that the conditions for considering a full commitment to one company will be not only remuneration but also “freedom of work style and working hours” and “good character of managers and officers”.
On the other hand, 54.5% of freelancers who only deal with one company cited “good working conditions and working hours” as the most common reason, and the greatest advantage of freelancing is “freedom in working conditions and working hours.” It turns out that it is thought that there is.
It seems that there is a tendency to contract with multiple companies as a reality of freelancers who have achieved high income. In recent years, it is easy for mismatches to occur in hiring excellent human resources with high annual salaries, and not a few companies are struggling to hire them as full-time employees. Uka If conditions such as work style, flexibility of working hours, and sympathy with the corporate philosophy are met, the possibility of being fully committed to excellent, ready-to-work personnel that cannot be met through mid-career recruitment will increase.
