  • Financial Cost: What are the dollar cost differences?
  • Knowledge Retention Implications: What are the implications for knowledge retention? Will knowledge leave with the contractor or remain with the permanent staff?
  • Commitment and Motivation Impact: Will the permanent-versus-contract decision likely affect the commitment or motivation to the role and overall company success?
  • Flexibility of Changes: Is staffing-level flexibility required and/or beneficial?
