Hiring Managers

Cliq is an online marketplace where top hiring companies can contract and collaborate with independent professionals in a virtual private workspace—without the overhead, saving you time and money.


In this increasingly gig-driven economy, CLIQ offers the reassuring benefit of fully-vetted independent contractors, allowing companies to avoid costly recruiting, relocation, on-boarding and residual overhead costs of in-house workers. In addition to our network of experts, hiring companies have access to a robust suite of professional productivity and collaboration tools at substantially reduced cost.

With CLIQ, hiring companies steer clear of costly turnover while benefitting from tax advantages and the added flexibility of on-demand talent.

  • Qualified skills search
  • On-demand interviews and vetting
  • HD video chat and screen sharing
  • Contract builder
  • Project management tools
  • Secure workspace creation
  • Automatic invoicing

According to U.S. government statistics, an in-house employee with an annual base salary of $75,000 really costs your company about $150,000 annually. (Data via Toptal.) We’re all familiar with the direct payroll costs of an employee, but the indirect overheads are much more impactful, and often missed in a typical analysis.

The average relocation package in 2013 was $72,627. Add recruitment fees, lost time spent on the hiring process, and residual overheads associated with an in-house resource—and you could save up to 45% utilizing a Cliq independent professional. These professionals come with far lower risk, plus the 1099 tax savings as a bonus.
