Streamlining Staffing Services with a Statement of Work
SOW services are typically used when a company needs to hire a vendor or contractor to perform specific tasks or projects, rather than hiring full-time employees. SOW services can be used to access specialized skills or expertise on an as-needed basis, or to provide flexibility and scalability for a company's operations.
Client was struggling to manage operations and results
Our client was struggling to manage the complexity of their operations and deliver consistent results for their clients. They were using a traditional time and materials billing model, which made it difficult to accurately forecast costs and project timelines.
Implement a SOW model their services
To improve efficiency and profitability, N2S decided to implement a statement of work (SOW) model for their services. Under the SOW model, the agency and their clients agreed to a fixed scope of work, deliverables, and price upfront, rather than billing based on hourly rates.
The transition to the SOW model was not without challenges, but with the help of our team, N2S able to successfully implement the new billing model and realize numerous benefits.

The SOW model also helped to improve communication and collaboration between the agency and their clients. With a clear understanding of the scope of work and deliverables, both parties were able to work together more effectively and achieve better results.
Overall, the staffing agency's transition to the SOW model was a success. It allowed them to streamline their operations, improve cost predictability, and enhance collaboration with their clients. The agency is now able to better serve their clients and grow their business with confidence.

Frequently Asked Questions
How does the SOW process work with a staffing company?
The SOW process typically involves the following steps:
- Client consultation: The staffing company meets with the client to understand their project requirements, objectives, and timeline.
- Scope definition: The staffing company and client collaborate to define the scope of work, deliverables, and desired outcomes.
- Resource identification: The staffing company identifies suitable candidates from its talent pool or conducts external recruitment to find qualified professionals.
- Proposal submission: Once the staffing company has identified potential resources, they submit a proposal outlining the project details, estimated costs, and timelines.
- SOW agreement: If the client accepts the proposal, both parties negotiate and finalize the SOW agreement, including terms, milestones, and payment schedule.
- Project execution: The staffing company provides the necessary resources, manages the project, and ensures deliverables are met as per the agreed-upon SOW.
How do staffing companies ensure the quality of resources provided for SOW services?
Staffing companies have stringent selection and screening processes to ensure the quality of resources they provide. This may include technical assessments, interviews, reference checks, and evaluations of previous work experience. Additionally, some staffing companies maintain ongoing relationships with their resources and offer training programs to enhance their skills and expertise.
What happens if the project scope or deliverables need to be modified mid-way through the SOW?
In the event that the project scope or deliverables need to be modified during the SOW, it is essential to communicate the changes to the staffing company as early as possible. The staffing company will assess the impact of the changes, consult with the client, and work towards reaching an agreement on any necessary adjustments or revisions to the SOW. This could involve updating timelines, costs, or resource allocations.
What happens at the end of an SOW engagement with a staffing company?
Once the SOW engagement is complete, the staffing company ensures that all deliverables have been met as per the SOW agreement. Any outstanding payments are settled, and a debriefing or review session may be conducted to evaluate the overall project and identify areas for improvement. At this point, the client may choose to extend the engagement, initiate a new SOW, or conclude the relationship with the staffing company.
