Direct Source Your Talent with Tailored Workforce Solutions

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.

Reactivate Your Database and Unlock New Opportunities

From talent shortages to the rise of a new contingent workforce, finding and retaining quality talent has never been more important for helping businesses meet their goals. Many professionals are prioritizing flexibility over stability, opting for project work rather than long-term employment at one company.

According to the CXC Contingent Workforce Global Trends Report, 77% of executives worldwide believe that the freelance and gig workforce will outnumber full-time employees within the next 5 years. To answer this workforce shift and find strong talent, Ardent Partners found that 70% of businesses are making Direct Sourcing and talent pool curation a top priority.

Using Direct Sourcing to supplement your talent acquisition process opens a dedicated sourcing channel to find new quality candidates while nurturing your entire talent pipeline, not just those actively engaging with your current openings. When it comes to crafting and implementing a Direct Sourcing strategy, there is no one-size-fits-all solution. Partner with Pierpoint to design a solution that works for your organization today.
