SOW Workers
One benefit of hiring a
SOW worker is that a
company can choose a
highly-skilled specialist
to work on a specific
task that needs to be
accomplished. Hiring
in this way is more
about employing a skill,
rather than a person.
employee as well as they treat their own permanent
workers - avoiding the " temp " mentality.
" The rule of thumb is the less separation between
[permanent and temporary workers] the better [the
work environment] is, " Stokvis says. " There are natural
boundaries, but in principle, the less walls you have
between the group of workers the better--because you
expect that this individual [will] give his or her best
in productivity and quality of work to the company.
Companies are wise to embrace the entire ecosystem of
talent. "
As company needs change, some employers may look
to convert permanent workers into SOW workers in
order to save money and meet more goals. While this
change is happening naturally, Stokvis cautions against
forcing it.
" I can see this happening from company's strategic
perspective, " Stovkis says. " They may reshape their
focus and prefer to change working relationships. The
challenge is that you more or less force people to move
into another construct. What I see best working is
when people themselves make the choice to move into
a freelance position. If company does it, there's a risk
there will be a turnover; the employees may redirect
their skills to find permanent positions somewhere
else. "
Stokvis advises companies themselves to come up with
ways to attract SOW workers.
" The starting point is to look at the company culture,
values, norms, " he says. " We see big opportunities
with our clients to broaden employee branding. If you
want to attract SOWs you have to deal with work that
needs to be done, and you need to understand that
talent nowadays have to options to choose from, so
employee branding becomes vital and critical. "
He says that companies should be looking at ways they
can improve their own reputation they are attractive
for workers to be associated with. " Try to interest and
intrigue [the worker], " he says.
Above all, securing the right resource for the job is
most essential when it comes to SOW workers. Always
ensure they know what their goal is, how to meet
it, and are able achieve it on time. Parrino sums up
the entire strategy in four words: " Defined task,
deliverable outcome. "
