Curate a Flexible Workforce Supply for Challenging Talent Needs

In a tight labor market, it’s challenging to attract and engage the extended workforce. So, when a specific talent need requires an approach outside your current workforce supply chain, where can you turn? For companies already engaged with a managed service provider (MSP) or recruitment process outsourcing (RPO) partner, direct sourcing provides an answer.

Direct sourcing supplements a managed services program by focusing on pre-determined job categories through a dedicated sourcing channel. In these cases, our recruiters – rather than staffing suppliers – fill contract assignments, meeting the needs of small to mid-market and enterprise customers alike. The result? Efficient sourcing without sacrificing talent quality.

Shorten the Recruitment Cycle

Leverage your company’s brand, the most advanced talent technology ecosystem and experienced recruiting specialists to attract and engage contingent workers faster for a better candidate experience.

Gain Cost Savings and Visibility

Reduce costs with competitive pricing and achieve total visibility into your contingent labor with workforce data insights reporting and analytics.

Meet Your Diversity Goals

Drive strong diversity hiring efforts within a privately branded talent pool.

Pivot Quickly to Stay Ahead

Gain the agility to adapt to market changes under the guidance of an experienced, integrated sourcing team.

”We estimate that around $1B of annual contingent labor spend is currently managed via Direct Sourcing, with about 5% corporate adoption. Looking ahead, we expect this figure to grow 10-15x over the next 5 years as more clients embrace the model and expand their scope and spend under management.”
