A must attend Think Tank for Recruitment professionals who have dedicated sourcing teams and are exploring the best way to structure them to deliver optimum value to their business.

Hosted by Chris Tennant, EMEA Talent Acquisition Director @ Infor.

Delivering an effective sourcing strategy for your business has never been more important in today’s candidate-driven market where recruitment has turned into a sport of ‘who can win the best talent, the quickest’. And whilst speed and quality are obviously clear drivers, resourcing teams also continue to be pushed to make these hires in the most cost-effective way.

With increasing pressure to win the war for talent, businesses have to think strategically about how they best source candidates. Many organisations will operate with sourcing teams to do the initial candidate identification and screening, before involving their recruitment colleagues to take the process further. Businesses are then faced with the question of how they structure their sourcing teams to get the best results in the most cost-effective way.

At this Resourcing Think Tank, hosted by Infor, we will be looking at the different ways you can structure a sourcing team to meet the business’s hiring needs and asking if ‘Onshore, Nearshore or Offshore’ is best?

We will be posing this question whilst taking into consideration the factors below:

  • Cultural differences between where sourcing teams are based vs. the countries they’re hiring into
  • Understanding which model is actually the most cost-effective – fill rate vs. overheads
  • Driving engagement amongst sourcing teams where they’re based all over the world and/or working from home
  •  Segmenting/aligning your sourcing teams – geographical remit vs. role specialism
