Q. It seems like our workload will increase due to communication, but how much workload will we be able to cut down if we ask for support by Direct Sourcing?

As a conclusion, your workload will not increase. On the premise that generally, we communicate directly with the person(s) in charge of recruitment and not with person(s) in charge of HR. After kicking-off the project, we would like to ask you for a couple of hours for an initial interview and feedback in order to share the same image of the candidates. Through this process, we will enhance the accuracy, and aim to decrease the process necessary for HR document selection. At a certain company we support, we achieved a document selection passage rate of around 80~90%. In addition, we share the image of our target with person(s) in charge of recruitment based on the accumulated data of candidates to whom the scounting emails have been sent, so we are able to apply the PDCA cycle fast.
