  22. 22. DIRECT SOURCING Comments - Currently our ATS search algorithm is unreliable and ineffective and we have shifted our internal database from being a first choice in direct sourcing to second choice behind purchased databases. - We prefer Email marketing to targeted lists. - Direct sourcing efforts aren't specifically tracked. - Company tends to rely on vendors for cold calling due to its conservative position on the practice. - In limited cases we have partnered with third-party vendors to provide sourcing support - We have a dedicated sourcing that supports corporate roles. - Networking, referrals from hiring managers are followed up as a priority. Sourcing is still evolving
