Rental Business Period


A person who carries out management duty in any area can be a suitable candidate for a company’s need of a manager. But what is the term and scale of the development plan of the company in question? What promises can the company give about the future considering the ever increasing market uncertainty? Will it be possible for the manager in question to face the risks included in this new offer? As these questions remain unanswered, it will be more reasonable to prefer a freelance and flexible manager rather than transfer an already available manager with high pays. Consequently, it will be possible to tend towards new alternatives when the development process or the project is interrupted. 

This change has become inevitable. Just like cars, offices and houses, the business life is proceeding to become rental. Most probably, such life style has already started particularly for the members of Generation Y, who instantly learn about the things in the world through their mobile phones. They aim for flexibility, freelance, internet, home-office and the ability to define their own salaries and taste more richness in a short time. These can only be achieved through a rental business life.

The rental business life has several advantages:

  • It minimizes the challenges of today’s companies such as the inability to make long-term plans or to adapt fast to the changes
  • It allows for ending current relations when downsizing is needed or making new agreements in a fast way when expansion is needed
  • It prevents the employee to get emotionally (so, fallaciously) bound to the company
  • It improves the perspectives and communication levels of the managements which think that the employees are dependent on them
  • It gives the chance to eliminate the employees who neglect their duties by as they think that they will get their salaries whether they do their job right or not
  • It offers more and different job opportunities for those who try to do their job better
  • It encourages competition and forces the people to have full command of their job
  • It empowers the mutual bargaining force for the employee who is content with the employer and for the employer who is content with the way of work
  • It doesn’t restrict the persons with a single speciality or work area
  • It personalizes potentially problematic issues such as the union, collective labour agreement or salary
  • It enables the persons to have control over the legal obligations and extras such as the obligatory and private insurance, tax, education, premium, food and leaves

Such environment certainly has some disadvantages, as well:

  • As the persons will be totally free in determining pays and prices, continuity will be endangered for the employers
  • In areas with over supply or competition, profits will fall below the acceptable levels
  • The future plans which are already short-term will become even shorter both for the employer and the employee due to the annulment of the legal obligations
  • Due to personalization, it will become even more challenging for the responsible institutions and organizations to perform legal audits on the companies as a whole
  • The amount of black economy will increase due to mutual agreements, tax incomes will decrease
  • The rate of specialization will decrease due to being profit-oriented
  • The average amount of employees will decrease in companies that are in need of permanent staff
  • As the education and business life preparation processes will fall behind this change, the gap between the incomes will grow even bigger

There is no perfect life style, management form or work environment. If there was, it would have been discovered and applied by now. Yet; there is an inevitable change, there are some developments whose disadvantages are bearable when thinking about the advantages and there is a world changing itself through the information technologies. Whether we like it or not or accept it or not, there is an economy-based order that has managed to become a common language. The change is irrevocable, but it can only be reshaped for transformation. Even though it might seem unrealistic for those who are content with the current system or who are longing for the old, tangible data show that the change has already gone beyond the critical threshold.

There used to be a distinction between the state sector and the private sector in the past. Now, there is distinction between the personal and the corporate. This means, either of these will be preferred. Hard days are waiting for the ones who resist or criticize such change or who think that it will only be ephemeral; whereas new opportunities and incomes are waiting for the ones that are open to and adaptive to changes and that invest in this direction.
