What is the direct sourcing market?

The direct sourcing market is a has seen a recent and rapid evolution in the contingent workforce management market which is estimated to be worth about US$130 billion. It is typically managed through procurement and involves clouds of contractor talent that can be directly sourced, hired and payrolled.

According to LiveHire, 23 per cent of employers surveyed by Gartner are planning to replace full-time equivalent roles with contingent roles post COVID-19 as a cost-saving measure, which could see the contingent workforce market accelerate on top of its 11.3 per cent forecast compound annual growth rate.

LiveHire said its technology is uniquely placed to deliver rapid and high return on investment to organisations looking to implement direct sourcing, as its differentiated architecture enables a high percentage of total contract hires on-demand.

LiveHire enjoyed a nice boost to its share price following the announcement, finishing the day 12.8 per cent higher and is selling shares for 22 cents each.
