#SourceCon Session Roundup – The Challenge of Defining Sourcing and Why It’s So Important

#SourceCon Session Roundup – The Challenge of Defining Sourcing and Why It’s So Important

At this Spring’s SourceCon event in Las Vegas, the Association of Talent Acquisition Professionals (ATAP), was provided the forum to seek input and feedback on questions core to the Association’s work in developing a Body of Knowledge and Standards around Sourcing Metrics and the Fundamentals of a Sourcing Function. Both committees, comprised of a diverse group of ATAP members, felt that feedback on two questions, in particular, was a fundamental step to provide a solid foundation for their work going forward. The focus of these questions also was on sourcing as a function/activity within organizations, not on who specifically would be conducting sourcing. We presented the questions, and a lively debate followed.
