6 Tasks a recruiter can outsource to a talent sourcing company



Let us forget for a minute that there is no talent crunch. The Purple Unicorn you are searching for is available in the talent market.


All you must do is – search for them.


Here starts a talent acquirer’s journey to hunt potential candidates. Talent acquirer leaves no stone unturned - Social media job posting, job seekers’ website, networking, referrals, everything that could bring candidates closer to them.



Yeah, you heard it right.


On average, talent acquisition professionals spend nearly 1/3 of their workweek (about 13 hours) sourcing candidates for a single role.


Just think of the recruiter’s tasks including but not limited to - assisting with the interview process, attending & conducting interviews with managers, directors, and other stakeholders, and assessing candidates for cultural fitment! A recruiter spends the majority of the time on the single task of finding suitable candidates.


It’s no wonder wearing too many hats at once is causing recruiters to burn out!


What can employers do to help their recruiters and save them from burnout? What is the solution for recruiters that can help them focus on more core recruitment tasks?


The answer is - outsourcing a task that eats up their significant time – Outsourcing talent sourcing to a talent sourcing company!


Why? Because talent sourcing can help recruiters to

1. Attract more potential and qualified candidates

2. Engage candidates for anticipated requirements

3. Have a defined talent sourcing and recruitment function for an efficient hiring process

Hence, outsourcing tasks enable decreasing time to hire, cost to hire, and attrition rate.


1 in every 72 sourced candidates is hired, compared to 1 in every 152 non-sourced candidates.
