What is Impact Sourcing?

Impact sourcing is when organizations intentionally hire and provide career development opportunities to people from marginalized communities while simultaneously meeting their business objectives. Impact workers come from groups that are economically disadvantaged, socially marginalized, under/unemployed, and/or have other unique factors which have excluded them from decent livelihoods. Women and unemployed youth form the largest segments of the impact sourcing workforce.

Globally, businesses are desperately looking for sources of talent that are highly engaged, stable and deliver quality work with low attrition rates. Meanwhile, governments and social development agencies are eagerly trying to enable decent work and livelihoods to lift economically excluded communities. The concept of impact sourcing arose at the intersection of these two needs.

Lifting Marginalized Communities and Fighting Poverty with Impact Sourcing

Everest Group’s Commitment to Action focuses on three stakeholder groups: employers or service providers, enterprises that buy their services, and enablers. Enablers are organizations that provide support and incentives by devising job-readiness programs and influencing policies and regulations. Everest Group pledges to promote and track the inclusive talent model of impact sourcing with robust research; provide enablement tools and how-to guides to employers and buyers; engage enablers; and share best practices
