Direct Sourcing Using Artificial Intelligence and Matching Technology

More and more often, you see the term direct sourcing related to recruiting candidates for contract and permanent placements. At face value, it may appear the company itself is doing all the sourcing, utilizing an online platform targeted at a small subset of the overall talent pool; however, this does not necessarily need to be the case. Although direct sourcing solutions in the marketplace allow companies to manage the program for themselves, these programs can be challenging to implement and even harder to demonstrate their effectiveness.

Initiating change in any organization can be a considerable challenge. ICON’s direct sourcing approach, powered by Opptly, gives our clients all the benefits of direct sourcing without any of the drawbacks of trying to do it all on your own. With our service, the direct sourcing of candidates occurs with the least amount of effort. ICON has an end-to-end direct sourcing solution that includes AI-based matching technology, a database of millions of US-based candidates, automated workflows to efficiently campaign to matched candidates, curation services to complete the vetting and submittal process, and employer of record (EOR) services to manage the engagement after a successful placement.

ICON leverages the latest AI technology to create an ecosystem of tailored talent from all potential sources – including private talent communities – so that you can find the top talent for each role quickly and efficiently. This groundbreaking ecosystem provides a seamless candidate experience as candidates operate within one online platform. As this is happening within ICON’s system, there is no process change within your MSP, VMS, or current procurement process. There is nothing to implement, so there are no software costs. Recruiting and promoting your client brand occurs before the role is released to grow your branded talent community proactively. Then, when the job is posted, we use AI to match candidates to the opportunity automatically. This technique saves on time-to-fill by as much as 40% because candidates are available, interested, and matched to the role.
