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. It’s why we don’t manufacture cars in our local garages, or even at our regional shopping centres. The leading companies have refined the process, scaled and optimised it in a way such that it would be a waste of time to try to compete.
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 adding 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
At the time of writing, the oil and gas industry is in the destruction phase of the boom/bust cycle, based on the persistently 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.
That’s not surprising to anyone who has been around for a while and has been paying attention. It’s how the industry works, as painful as it can be to go through these stages. It’s during times like these that new ideas surface, new ways of achieving old objectives.
Now is the time for innovation.
It’s 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 issues 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. Also, there will be time savings too.
It 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 scepticism 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 want to introduce you to the NatResPro method of rightsourcing, and we are sure that you will get convinced that this is a better alternative to the old recruitment methods 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 got 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 can upload their work history details directly through our profile builder which has optimised, standardised fields that are specific and relevant. Filling in the NatResPro profile builder is easy, because many of the options have accurate, correctly spelt drop down option boxes. Nothing significant will get missed. That certainly beats trying to type out a CV from scratch!
The resume build application gets checked and verified by one of our skill pool advisors before publishing to our database. Each skill pool advisor is likely to have a similar work experience to the candidate and a typical recruitment manager. (Minimum of 20 years, often 30 years plus in the oil & energy industry). A 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 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 crucial several search parameters that get inputted. It 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 interactive database, (overseen by our skill pool advisors) does 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? That will help to keep costs down and reduce the need to trim onboarding packages. With cost savings of up to 67-95% of your standard recruiting costs, rightsourcing through NatResPro makes complete sense.
