Process

Recruitment & Vetting

PW Communications attracts and retains the most talented consulting professionals in the industry.

 

Prospective consultants undergo a thorough vetting process, including reference checks and background investigations, as required. All consultants must have a minimum of 3–5 years of proposal experience to ensure no "on-the-job" training at the time and expense of clients.

The Staffing Process

Our clients always come first. This mission informs every aspect of our business, including our staffing process. We never over-staff, and only present candidates with the requisite skills and experience.  

We tailor our staffing solutions to meet the unique needs of each client. Some clients outsource all proposal needs to PW Communications, reducing internal staffing and overhead expenses, while others turn to us to augment their existing staff, particularly in surge situations.
