Issues to Consider
An Interim Manager's career is challenging and rewarding
At Boyden interim management, we work closely with our Interim Managers to ensure that they are well informed about the interim management marketplace and understand how we work as an Interim Management provider.
Making the transition from a permanent to interim career can be challenging. One of the greatest issues faced by Interim Managers is dealing with the loss of "corporate comfort." Much that is taken for granted during a permanent role, whether the corporate career path, financial and job security, or the social environment is no longer guaranteed.
We encourage our Interim Managers to maintain regular contact with us, ensuring that we have all the necessary information -- current CV/resumes, for example, or availability updates -- so that we are well placed to find the right candidate for each job opportunity.
Issues to Consider
- Independent contractors – our Interim Managers are independent contractors to Boyden, they are not our employees. Thus, at the end of the calendar year, Boyden issues 1099’s to each of its Interim Managers. This insulates our clients from any type of direct employment relationship with these resources.
- Only under contract when on assignment – Our Interim Managers are only contracted with Boyden during a Boyden assignment. We encourage our managers to seek other opportunities during time frames when they are not under contract with Boyden. This allows them to continue to deepen their skill sets and broaden their networks.
- Disclosure Agreement – Boyden interim management requires our Interim Managers to sign a disclosure agreement before sharing details about each potential client assignment. The purpose of this agreement is two fold. First, the agreement protects our client's data and ensures confidentiality. Secondly, the agreement requests you confine your pursuit of the assignment and the client to joint efforts with Boyden.
- Background and reference checks – Boyden requires all deployed Interim Managers to go through a formal background and reference check process.
