Strategic Sourcing Definition: Maximization of all tools and resources to continue to deliver the diversity of talent. Also, a consistent and continuous process that increases the pool of candidates but reduces the cost of recruiting them.
The business need is to centralize sourcing.Executive SummaryThe Talent Acquisition business opportunity presented here is centralization of sourcing processes across all regions. The involves developing a strategy that encompasses the understanding all sourcing touch points, centralization of resources that have been tested and proven to be effective, driving consistency through education of sourcing methodologies, formulating a value proposition, ensuring alignment with STAR, the Centers of Excellence, and improving CEA.

Improve CEA by streamlining process and allowing for one point of contact. This will entail elevation of sourcers skills in identifying talent without verbal contact with candidates. Provide Sample Spreadsheet for centralization of information
During Phase I: Meet with vendors to negotiate contracts that make sense for the entire organization. Ask for a national agreement. If you post 100 jobs per month at the current Monster rate. Taking a look at stats from compete.com, as of August 2008, Monster and Careerbuilder are close in visitors to their sites. This would cost around $300,000 annually. There was 3 million dollars spent last year. What resources were these dollars allocated?Other: Dice, Snag a Job, etc.
Provide Sample Training Presentation
My job is ensuring maintenance and optimization of the ATS system. Also, ensuring that we utilize all channels and resources available to build a talented pipeline. The sourcing group must be strategic in separating those that meet requirements and those that do not. Driving a consistent sourcing management process will help improve the pipeline of candidates within the ATS system.
One initiative that I would like to undertake is linking the values and behaviors to specific skills and behaviors that can be identified in the sourcing process. Linking the Dynamic Organization to candidate skills and behaviors will elevate the level of talent in the pipeline, help reduce turnover, and increase passion around culture.
Change is always difficult, but successful management of the process will help with the transition.
