Insourcing is one of the most productive recruiting methods many companies use. The best candidates for new job openings are often within your company.
Insourcing is a recruiting method company uses to fill open job positions with someone already employed within the organization.
Why is insourcing a good recruiting method?
Often times, your current employees are the best match for your newly opened positions. These are people who culturally make a good match for your company. They already know what are your vision and mission, and they are more likely to align whit them than outsiders.
Insourcing is especially popular when filling higher-level positions. Besides insourcing, employee referral programs are another popular recruiting method among companies.
