Should you Build, Buy or Outsource

Should you Build, Buy or Outsource
April 12, 2013 at 1:00 - 2:00 PM ET
Shally Steckerl, Sourcing Specialist(The Sourcing Institute)
This one hour session will explore the factors in deciding if your company should build your own dedicated sourcing team or look at the options of outsourcing. Learn the key issues surrounding the decision process of build, or buy. What are the advantages of an internal sourcing team? What are the challenges of building a sourcing team? Why should your company consider going externally?

If you see your should recruiters are all working on too many requisitions a month, it may be time to consider some external assistance with recruitment research. In some situations, you may want to remove any possibility of questionable integrity by accidentally sourcing directly from a sensitive client or customer.

The other reasons to go outside for your research would include firewall limitations imposed on employees by overzealous IT security departments, those slow connection speeds, the lack of a training budget to develop your own sourcing team, or a host of other business reasons why your organization does not allow you to conduct direct sourcing.

You may consider an outside firm. They may be able to manage those risks more effectively. If none of these stumbling blocks apply to you in your organization, then why not should consider building your own dedicated sourcing team. Internet sourcers, or researchers, can save your organization money by providing your recruiters with candidates that may never have applied directly through your company’s website or online with one of your job posting partners.

Learn the pros and cons of both sides to assist you in making the build or buy decision.
