Contract jobs are traditionally considered “insecure”. However, how about getting a job at a top tech firm and being put on the ‘bench’ from day one? What if this wait stretches on for more than two weeks? Ofcourse, you are wiling away your time learning new courses and getting into training modules, but then, those won’t be of any use without real-world knowledge. Like how will you work in a team? How will you meet a project deadline? Or how you will get your subordinates to work for you. And importantly, how will you create a product and bring it to market? These experiential insights can never be learnt in any course, which is why your resume will always remain blank. If this is frustrating you no end, perhaps you should get off the bench and sign up with Workflexi.
What we do here is to get you a fixed term contract job. About 10% get rolled off before or after their contract expires, for various reasons. That means you are out of a contract job even before you have secured your next contract. If you happen to be one of those unfortunate ones, Workflexi will give you one month’s minimum basic pay, so you can either look for a job in the meanwhile (which we will also do), or chase your passion, take a break and come back again with renewed vigour with an all-new job in an all-new project, company or career path.
We call this the Basic Pay System or BPS in short. It’s meant to safeguard people who get fired (usually at a 24-hour notice). Agreed, it’s the industry standard and no one can argue for or against it. But it’s depressing news for any person who is handed the pink slip out of the blue. Looking at such a scenario, we came up with BPS. What this means is that whoever signs up with us not only gets a contract job, but their employer can also put them on the BPS scheme and safeguard their contract job. Once they complete atleast six months of employment with the company they are pay-rolled with, they automatically become eligible for claiming the basic pay.
The ‘bench’ is really going out of style. Who wants to drill holes in a resume and get depressed at the same time. Instead, it’s best to step out and walk into a fixed term contract job that sometimes even offers a better pay than a full-time job, depending on your calibre. Therefore, we would advice every jobseeker to get out of this ‘permanent job is the best security’ mindset and embrace a contract job that actually offers much more freedom and the best way to strike that largely elusive work-life balance. Imagine being stuck to a job you don’t like but you are peddling away because you are afraid you will not get a better job or a better pay. It’s this fear of insecurity that compels you to stay in an unhappy job. What’s more, some companies pay you more but also drain you the fastest. Your age begins to show and you think of retiring at 30, when your contract worker counterparts are thinking of staying on till 60. Welcome to the world of permanent jobs. If you don’t like the sight and sound of it, step out of that mindset now, and embrace the future of work: flexi jobs.
At Workflexi, we offer all of that and more. In your free time, you could pursue your passions. It could be a crash course in blockchain, crypto currency or AI, or become an adjunct faculty member at a reputable institute or go on a mountain climbing expedition to Ladakh or a cycling trip to Coorg.

We are your custom lifestyle managers. You decide what you want and we will deliver it to you. It’s that simple. Welcome to Workflexi. Welcome to a whole new world
