2:40 PM – 3:30 PM (Concurrent session)

In-House Sourcers: Building and Managing a Research Resource
If your organization currently has, or believes it needs dedicated sourcing assets – don’t miss this session! Sourcers, also called researchers, can save big money by pipelining candidates that may never have applied through traditional avenues. But there is a downside: sourcing experts are difficult to find, and retain. This session takes us through how a sourcing guru built and led some of the world's most successful sourcing teams. We’ll uncover how to find, select, hire, manage and lead world-class researchers. Along the way you’ll learn if you need a dedicated sourcer, and if so how many, how to measure the research function, what to look for (and what to avoid) when hiring sourcers, how best to organize your researchers to support your recruiters, and performance enhancers and inhibitors for sourcers.

Presenter: Shally Steckerl, Chief Cybersleuth, Jobmachine
