Talent, Technology and the Future of Direct Sourcing

Direct sourcing isn’t new. But the concept has increasingly gained prevalence among employers in recent years, becoming almost a catchphrase in the staffing industry today. The onset of the COVID-19 pandemic has only accelerated existing contingent workforce trends, growing already-heightened demand for direct sourcing thanks to the evolution and expansion of talent acquisition technological tools and services.

While there is no universally accepted definition, direct sourcing in a contingent workforce context can be understood as “the process by which a company leverages its own internal candidate pool … to place within the company as temporary employees,” according to a 2021 report using research by Staffing Industry Analysts. 

Contingent Workforce

Candidate Reference Checks: Preparing for a reference call

Properly done, reference checks are an excellent opportunity to verify all the key issues in your hiring decision for the candidate - ranging from qualitative information about a candidate's skill set, strengths and weaknesses, character traits and overall ability to perform the job they are being considered for.   

Great references start with effective preparation and ensuring you are prepared to ask the right questions A great way to do this is to draft a script to ensure you stay on-topic and ask the questions you need to ask when checking references.  

When it comes to the final stage in the acquisition process, are you conducting a reference check with a former boss or current BFF? An unprepared Hiring Manager may not know the difference - exposing the organization to the pricey, yet avoidable, impacts of the cost of a bad hire.

How to negotiate your employment contract

The pandemic has presented an unprecedented workforce climate - yet while the world is slowly recovering, the workforce is rapidly seeing an increase in jobs and opportunities.  

The final stage in cementing any business relationship is contract negotiation. Whether you're entering the contingent workforce, becoming a fulltime employee or re-negotiating a pre-existing agreement, the workers who get what they want achieve it with a sound negotiation strategy.

And while the current workforce and economic climate may impact an organization's payroll, your skills and experience are of value, and it's important to approach the bargaining table with confidence that a fair and competitive market rate will be agreed on - if you're prepared.

Before you accept the first offer, lay the groundwork for getting what you deserve. Here's how:
