Starting a Consulting Firm? Some Reasons Your Clients Need You by Sachin Karpe. According to industry experts, here are the top 10 reasons organizations hire consultants today: To obtain specific expertise – Clients typically hire people who have the skills and expertise their own staff lacks, so it really pays to have a track record that speaks for itself. To identify problems – Sometimes employees are too close to a problem inside an organization to recognize it. That’s when a consultant rides in on his or her white horse to save the day. To supplement a company’s internal staff – Sometimes business executives discover they can save thousands of dollars a week by hiring consultants when needed rather than hiring full-time employees says Sachin Karpe.
