What is Direct Sourcing?
Direct sourcing happens when an organization recruits its own workforce directly rather than engaging the services of a third party vendor like a Managed Services Provider (MSP) or a staffing agency. Direct sourcing allows the organization to establish its own talent pool and control its employer brand.
It's a new work world in an uncertain labor market, yet hiring is happening, and life - and business is moving forward.
In fact, a new study from StaffingHub finds that 71 per cent of staffing firms expect the industry to come back stronger than before, which intimates employers are putting strategies in place now in order to capitalize on immediate, current or future needs - and many employers are planning on moving away from traditional employment models.
As employers attempt to drive business forward by leveraging more flexible workforce models, it's critical that recruitment professionals are aware of the sourcing strategies used for these types of non-traditional worker engagements.
