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.
”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.”Talent Tech Labs
