Keep in touch

Intercommunication proves to be efficient, time and cost saving, at the same time it leads you to fruitful and successful cooperation.

Test before you hire

Hiring somebody new for your project is a serious process. You can read their resume, do job interviews but you still don’t know how they will do before they start a job. If you are not quite sure about the professional competence of the candidate you can hire him/her to complete a small task for a certain fee. This way will help you to evaluate the candidate’s job fit, cultural fir, motivators and potential problems that might appear in the course of the workflow.

Be aware of the wage

The wage of the average programmer in Ukraine varies from 30 to 50 dollars per hour. Take this information into account while estimating the value of the project.

Communicate respectfully

Respectfully interacting and communicating with your co-workers is a foundation of the respectful workplace. Create meaningful relationships and prevent procrastination, gossip, stonewalling and other aggressive methods in the team work. On the other hand, rewards and incentives will retain the employees who stay with the company, boost employee productivity, idea generation and profits. Moreover reward system doesn’t always need to involve cash.
