Frequently asked questions

What is the first step to hiring HR talent and determining the project cost?

One of the first steps in hiring any talent is to determine which skills you need for your project. You know you need help with human resources, but what specific things are you trying to do? Upwork matches you with proven remote talent who can help you with all your needs, including:

  • Develop ideal candidate criteria
  • Organize and conduct new employee orientation 
  • Design materials and workshops for training and development
  • Prepare and review benefit and salary packages 

The cost of your project depends largely on your scope of work and the specific skills needed to complete your project.  

A human resource project includes the following: 

  • ●  Deliverables: What do you need done? Perhaps you need an expert to recruit and interview candidates or an HR information system expert to manage your HR data. 
  • ●  Skills: Identify the skills needed to complete the project (e.g., specialized in curriculum development or labor relations & negotiation).
  • ●  Project Length: Your job post should indicate whether this is a smaller or larger project.
  • ●  Budget: Set a budget and note your preference for either an hourly rate or fixed-price contract.
