Rightsourcing is a relatively new buzzword that has surfaced because of the recent rise in the relevance of outsourcing. Of course, ever since the beginning of human commerce we outsourced the things we needed, even going to the market was outsourcing.
Nowadays when we talk about outsourcing we mean the process of searching for specialists who can offer a better value proposition than is practical in-house. This is why we don’t manufacture cars in our own garages, or even at our local shopping centres. The leading companies have refined the process, scaled and optimised it in a way that it would be a waste of time to try to compete against.
Staffing solutions can sometimes be met best by insourcing, and sometimes by outsourcing. The wise judgement and execution of this is the definition of rightsourcing. (Incidentally, right sourcing without the space is the same thing).
Here is a third party definition of rightsourcing:
Rightsourcing is selecting the best way to procure a service and deciding whether a company is best served by performing a business requirement in-house (insourcing) or contracting it out to a third-part service provider (outsourcing). Rightsourcing literally means “choosing the correct source.
The current state of our industry demands careful decisions
The oil and gas industry is in the destruction phase of the boom/bust cycle, based on the persistent low oil prices that are now prevalent. Those companies that survive will do so as a result of smart decision making. Many of these decisions involve cost cutting and increased efficiency.
This is not new, or surprising to anyone who has been around for a while, and has been paying attention. This is how the industry works, as painful as it can be to go through these stages. It is during times like these that new ideas surface, new ways of achieving old objectives.
Now is the time for innovation.
This is the reason for our version of rightsourcing…
…A new way of approaching the recruitment model that solves many of the old problems. These are the types of problems that are a hindrance or a waste of money during good times, but demand essential solutions during bad times.
Our model of rightsourcing holds the key to substantial recruitment cost savings. In addition there will be time savings too.
This might sound contradictory, since time and money are usually part of a zero-sum game. You can either do something yourself and spend time, or get someone else to do it and spend money. For us to assert that we can save you a lot of time and money might sound unlikely…
If this sounds like a lofty claim, we encourage you to hold onto your skepticism for a few paragraphs as we spell out exactly how we can benefit you if you are a job hunter, or your company if you are a recruitment manager.
Progress involves questioning the status quo
We shouldn’t stay in the past when there are better alternatives available. Sometimes we see step-changes or new systems or technologies that make us wonder why we didn’t do it that way all along.
We would like to introduce you to the NatResPro method of rightsourcing and we are sure that you will be convinced that this is a better alternative to the old recruitment methods that are still used in the energy industry.
Here is a brief explanation of how our system works, and cost saving benefits. The time savings will be immediately apparent.
The key to rightsourcing is based on our unique system of using these three features:
- Skill Pool Advisors
- Verified Database of accurate candidate information
- An Automated Search Feature and advanced process of accessing candidate details
NatResPro has approached the business from the angle of making the process as easy as possible for candidates and employers alike.
Candidates are able to upload their CV directly through our website then have it optimised, standardised and updated by one of our skill pool advisors. Each skill pool advisor is likely to have similar experience to the candidate and the recruitment manager. (Minimum of 20 years, often 30 years plus). This means that the candidate knows that their information has been processed by the sharpest of eyes and the safest of hands.
The database and quality control is also organised and up to date. We value our databases highly, as we know that the majority of recruitment companies simply don’t have the boots on the ground know-how.
How can you update and organise something properly unless you are an expert on the subject matter?
Modern technology is used to allow an anonymous search feature to whittle down the database to a number of key search parameters that are inputted. This certainly beats digging through piles of out-of-date or inaccurate candidate CV’s, most of which will not be an exact fit for the skill and experience set required.
Rightsourcing simplifies and organises the whole process of candidate interaction and selection. Our skill pool advisors do all of the hard work so that landing your next job, or recruit will be a simple low-friction process, not a headache.
Oh, and did we mention that companies can use our services at a fraction of the cost of traditional solutions? This will help to keep costs down and reduce the need to trim on-boarding packages. With cost savings of up to 67-95% of your normal recruiting costs, rightsourcing through NatResPro makes complete sense.
