Impact Sourcing is a new type of business process outsourcing (BPO) that aims to create jobs for individuals with limited opportunity in rural or economically depressed communities. There are a number of new studies which show the significant business benefits for companies that partner with Impact Sourcing providers, including significant cost savings and proven social benefits. Additionally, Impact Sourcing can provide high-quality, reliable services at prices that are at least competitive with traditional BPO centers and, in some cases, almost 40 percent lower than what traditional providers can offer. It is estimated that 40% of companies currently outsourcing to traditional BPOs will allocate at least 25% of their budget toward Impact Sourcing providers by 2015. As a pioneer in Impact Sourcing, Samasource has connected over 3,700 poor women and youth across 9 countries to nearly $3 million in living wages. This work is sourced from some of the world's biggest enterprises including Google, Microsoft, Intuit, and LinkedIn. In this presentation, we explain what Impact Sourcing is, the benefits to clients and beneficiaries, and the forecasted growth of the industry.
