Flexing It is a new online platform which is looking to organise the market for short-term, flexible skills in India. Our platform - www.flexingit.com - connects organisations to highly skilled professionals for project-based work, consulting assignments, advisory roles, and other types of part-time work structures.

Given that this is a new, as yet evolving space, that are many aspects of independent working that do not have benchmarks yet. One of these is the right fee/compensation range for an assignment. A lot of us who are new to working independently or hiring consultants and contractors, face the problem of not knowing exactly what to offer, and may often lose good projects and/or talent as the case may be.

To address this, we are creating an algorithm that will help define how to think about consultant, freelancer compensation in a more structured way, taking into account a variety of factors such as skill-sets needed, experience of the professional, costs associated with a regular employee vs. a consultant, amongst others.

To get to the right assumptions and rules that should define this algorithm, we are keen to get input from experienced Human Resource professionals.

Please take a few minutes to fill out this short survey and help derive a useful algorithm that will benefit us all. Any information you share will be totally confidential and only used in a synthesized and aggregated form.

Thank you in advance for your time and perspectives.
