Arbita Expands Services with Flat-fee Sourcing for Hard-to-Fill Jobs

Minneapolis, MN — July 19, 2010 — Arbita, a leader in recruitment marketing and sourcing solutions, today announced Arbita SourcingOutSourcing, a uniquely powerful and effective candidate pipelining solution that leverages the skill, expertise and agility of the industry’s leading sourcing authorities to return a five-person roster of pre-screened, highly qualified candidates for any job, in any industry, anywhere in the world, for a fixed fee.

“This is a natural extension of our core capabilities,” said Don Ramer, founder and CEO of Arbita. “It takes our expertise and knowledge and makes them available to recruiters and staffing managers, so they can get out of the technical world of sourcing and get back to what they love to do and what they do best: recruiting and hiring.”

Arbita SourcingOutSourcing delivers five pre-screened, highly qualified candidates within days, for a flat fee of $5,000. That’s a fraction of the cost of hiring a staffing firm or contingency search firm to do the job, Ramer said.

“But the cost savings is only one big difference,” Ramer added. “We are uniquely capable at sourcing. It’s what we do, it’s what we’re known for. Arbita has the ability and insight to tightly target searches by going both deeper into and wider across the wealth of all possible sources of candidates today.”

In addition:

• Unlike a hiring manager or staff recruiter, Arbita SourcingOutSourcing focuses exclusively on candidate sourcing.
• Unlike an RPO, it only brings clients candidates. The client controls the recruiting, hiring and onboarding.
• Unlike a staffing agency, Arbita SourcingOutSourcing puts its team to work as part of the client’s team, with their best interests at heart.

Arbita SourcingOutSourcing is also supported by the The Arbita Sourcing Center of Excellence, a deep and expansive repository of engaging, authoritative, timely and accessible resources from the industry’s top sourcing and recruiting consultants.

“The Sourcing Center of Excellence is, in essence, the context from which all of our efforts are delivered, on behalf of all of our clients,” Ramer said. “It is the differentiator that sets us apart from body-shop consulting firms that are simply pushing contract sourcers at their clients’ problems, without much regard for their qualifications.”

Sourcing is rarely a core competency for hiring managers or corporate recruiting. This truth has become self-evident as the world of sourcing has become more complex with the social networking revolution, significant shifts in workforce demographics and an increasing reliance on the Internet in nearly every aspect of our lives.

In the complex world of recruiting, it only makes sense to have experts help an organization with its most technical and challenging sourcing requirements.
