    s based on availability and the needs of the company at any given time. The

  • Efficiency. Different staff have different costs. Blending seniorities within a project/task can lead to ideal results at a lower staff cost, improving profitability.
  • Fairness. We like to get work to our people consistently and predictably, and should avoid overloading one person while leaving another person without the hours they want.

  • Ensure that each assignee has the opportunity to ask questions and get support. Set up meetings when needed.
  • Use Contributors liberally to diversify our workforce and facilitate growth
