Re: How to meet co-workers for your agency on upwork ?

Dear community,

 

I have two couples of questions concerning the agency creation, or more specifically, concerning what is allowed to do, and what is not.

 

Knowing that co-workers can work only under the agency projects :

1. Is it allowed to meet new co-workers here on the community by posting a topic (on which we could ask for a new cooperation)?

2. Is it allowed to meet new co-workers by sending private messages here on the community forum ?

3. Is it allowed to meet new co-workers on upwork by posting a job (where we could ask for new cooperation as co-worker in the agency)?

4. Is it allowed to ask a freelancer who has already worked for us (as a client) to join our agency to work on the projects of our future clients ?

 

Look forward to the answers.
Thank you so much for your time in advance, 

 

My best !

1 to 3 are not allowed, not sure about 4.

 

I seem to remember it is not allowed, but I may well remember wrongly.

 

As you are completely responsible for what your agency freelancers do, it is much better to work with people you know personally, not random strangers on the Internet.

Anyone worth working with would likely not join an agency anyway considering how most clients would not touch an agency freelancer with someone else's barge-pole.

Hi Mhammed,

 

It is okay for a freelancer with whom you worked as a client before to join your agency and work on projects for your agency.
