What You and Your Business Needs
Now that we cleared up the difference between the two we are closer to answering the main questions. However, It depends on you. You know for yourself how you want your business to be handled, after all. If you want more freedom and less hassle, then get contractors.
If you are running a small business, a contractor is a good idea as you don’t need much communication with them. You tell them a job needs to be done and they do it- end of story. For employees you get to train them, teach them how things are done in your business.
