Direct Sourcing & Recruitment

More and more often you see the term direct sourcing as it relates to recruiting candidates for contract and permanent placements. At face value it may appear that 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 there are direct sourcing solutions in the marketplace that allow companies to manage the program for themselves, these programs can be difficult to implement and even harder to demonstrate their effectiveness.  


ICON’s direct sourcing approach gives our clients all the benefits of direct sourcing without any of the drawbacks of trying to do it all on your own. Initiating change in any organization can be a huge challenge. 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 A.I.-based matching technology, a database of over 16MM+ 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 A.I. 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. This provides a seamless candidate experience as candidates operate within one on-line 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 of your client brand occurs before the role is released to proactively grow your branded talent community. Then, when the job is actually posted, we use A.I. to automatically match and connect candidates to the opportunity. This technique saves on time-to-fill by as much as 40% because candidates are available, interested, and matched to the role.
