Today I had the pleasure of sitting together with a young successful entrepreneur that has at the age of 26 already two offices for his company; one in Prague and one in New York.
We talked about culture and the challenges he is facing in his company with maintaining the culture as the company expanding in two locations, however his greatest concern was how to ensure that all the part-timers and external temporary workers are really in the culture and treating the clients as his full-time employees knows that his company wants to treat their clients.
After some further explanations from Vojta about his company, I suggested him to try 3 things for his part-timers:
1. Set up an app for them to let the company know when they are able to work (giving the choice to them)
2. Implement a "champion system" where it is clearly communicated how you will celebrate the part-timers success.
3. Set up a 15 min training at the start of each gig of what is your company culture. Make it easy for anyone to train anyone-else on what the core of your company stands for.
After we parted I realized that I had forgotten to tell him the about the:
Connecting part-timers to your organization is always a clever move, as they can be brand ambassadors and sales people of your company, if you are treating them right.
Apart from that it is always the best thing to do - to treat people right and it feels good. It is also very good for your reputation - no negatives only lots of positive outcomes if you invest the time in looking after your part-timers.

I agree with this! All employees working for a firm, whether they are part-time workers or full-time workers, should feel that they are part of the company. They should be given importance to even if they are only part-time workers because they work just as hard as full-time workers. A company should be able to make sure that every person working for the company is motivated. Therefore, they should always make sure that everyone feels that they are a huge part of the company's success.

Regardless if they are part timers or full timers, you should give them the balanced and enough respect that they need as your workers. Thank you for this article as I am a freelance writer and I value the idea that the employers should value us; same treatment that there regular writers have been getting. They may differ from rules they are setting and full timers can be said to be more dedicated and they are carrying bigger burden, but part timers have to be compensated too!
