Impact sourcing | Athena Alliance

May 25, 2023

Talent, be it in-house or with your sourcing partners, has become complex in 2023. Global services, especially, are always on the lookout for talent sources that are highly engaged and stable, ensuring high-quality work and low attrition. Impact Sourcing, or hiring skilled and motivated talent from disadvantaged groups around the world, is proving to be a solution – helping forward-thinking organizations tap into new talent pools, fill roles, create pipelines, and realize substantial business benefits.

Everest Group has designed a panel for Athena Alliance leaders and decision-makers. CXOs and several founders will share real-world lessons on creating an inclusive workforce focusing on marginalized communities and the business case to persuade the skeptics. All have a particular focus on women – as UN Women calls it – Gender Responsive Procurement. You will want to engage all these companies because of how they are marrying quality global services and sustainability, the ultimate of “doing good while doing well.”

In the last couple of years, we have witnessed the frantic adoption of cloud by enterprises trying to keep up with innovation.

Our speakers will discuss:

  • How can you define value from cloud, and what are the key elements beyond cost?
  • What does value realization mean for different stakeholder groups?
  • How can enterprises align on one consistent definition of value?
  • What is the role of different market participants in helping enterprises realize value?
  • How relevant is cost optimization as a value lever in the current recessionary environment?
  • What are the pragmatic steps enterprises can take to maximize value realization?
