1:50 PM Workshop: Direct Sourcing – Do’s and Don’ts

On the radar for many organizations, direct sourcing has been a hot topic for the past few years as a strategy that can augment your contingent staffing supply base. This interactive workshop will discuss some of the best - and a few worst - practices gained when attempting to develop or build such an initiative. Key takeaways include:

• Assessing where and when direct sourcing makes sense
• How to manage internal legal and compliance roadblocks
• Tools and techniques to protect your brand

2:50 PM Interactive Roundtables (2 Rounds of 30 Minutes)

These interactive roundtable sessions take a deep dive into the specific areas you came to learn about. Sit and learn in an intimate format from the speakers who have had an impact on their company and industry. Take control of your own event experience and don’t be shy! Ask questions (or answer them!) alongside other conference attendees who are dealing with the same challenges as you network with industry peers with very similar challenges, interests and responsibilities.

- What tools are out there – how have they worked/not worked within particular organizations and programs
- Have talent pools achieved the expected results
- What is the future of talent pools and how should we best leverage them?
