In this post we will be looking at the contract needed to be put in place to get your ESR started and what shouldn’t be forgotten when employing an ESR.
After giving you a good overview of the individual subjects in previous articles we are now continuing with our Starting Guide series to offer you some more concrete help with your projects. In this three-part-series we will be giving you tips on how to manage your projects in regard to the ESRs, starting with the recruitment process.
