Today’s guest is here to talk
about the change in how to treat 1099 contractors just like your
regular employees. Russell Farbiarz is the Partner at Antanavage Farbiarz PLLC. He sees the
importance of building a good culture in your firm and has found a
unique way to do so. Russell joins host Molly McGrath to talk about
how people can treat their contracted employees just like the other
employees that come in everyday.

schedule on them so you want to find times that work for them for a
- You want to have weekly one on one meetings
with your employees to evaluate where they are at and get everyone
on the same page.
- When it comes to building a culture in your
firm, you want to bring those 1099 employees into that as
- If you give your employees undivided attention
and pour positive feedback into them, they will rise to any
occasion and go above and beyond.
- In this labor market, it’s easier to work with
people than to try to replace people. Invest into the employees and
contractors you already have.
- With virtual contractors, there needs to be a
lot of communication and make sure that they are aware of the work
that needs to be done.
- You don’t have to hire a full time virtual
assistant, you can change their hours depending on how much work
there is for them to do.
