Direct Sourcing
Term Used Globally

Direct Sourcing

A term commonly used to refer to the process by which a company leverages its own candidate pool (e.g., former employees, retirees, silver medalist applicants from its own ATS) to place within the company, as contingent/temporary employees. Direct sourcing does not necessarily mean that 100% of a company’s hiring will be done in-house and with no relationships with intermediaries.

In earlier times, this practice for contingent workers largely consisted of informally sourced, pre-identified candidates who were placed on the payroll of a third-party payroll provider. More modern and mature direct sourcing programs typically leverage the employer brand in job advertising to maximize candidate flow.

More recently, the demand for direct sourcing has been accelerated by the evolution and multiplication of talent acquisition tools and services (aided by developments in artificial intelligence and big data). Such tools include software for managing and curating candidate talent pools. Next-generation direct sourcing programs often include a talent curation service layer (either internal or outsourced) and a partner to take on employment responsibility (employer of record/agent of record services in the US) for those workers who should not be or do not want to be classified as independent.
