What is Direct Sourcing for Contingent Workforces?
Direct Sourcing – sometimes referred to as “RPO for contingent” – is a workforce solution in which a company uses its own talent pool (e.g., former employees, retirees, and silver medalist applicants from its own ATS) to meet recruiting demand for temporary employment roles at their company.
Often, this relationship is managed through RPO providers with expertise in curating talent pools using best-in-class technology like artificial intelligence (AI) to manage the process. Modern direct sourcing programs use the employer brand in job advertising to ensure successful recruitment and increase employee retention.
