TechWhirl (TECHWR-L) is a resource for technical writing and technical communications professionals of all experience levels and in all industries to share their experiences and acquire information.
For two decades, technical communicators have turned to TechWhirl to ask and answer questions about the always-changing world of technical communications, such as tools, skills, career paths, methodologies, and emerging industries. The TechWhirl Archives and magazine, created for, by and about technical writers, offer a wealth of knowledge to everyone with an interest in any aspect of technical communications.
Mike O. makes a good point: "If your CEO wants X months commitment from me, why not write me a contract laying out exactly what he wants, rather than take the risk that employees will exercise their at-will rights and leave?"
I have not seen any evidence of a business being loyal to the employees in more years than I care to count. Whenever a business is in trouble, it seems that their first reaction is to reduce expenses by eliminating staff posistiions. They demand loyalty, yet they willingly abandon loyal staffers when things start to get tough.
Could it be that Kelly's CEO and others on this thread that look down on contractors are simply afraid to make a reciprocal commitment?
