The role of environmental, social, governance ESG initiatives in services sourcing and talent strategies

Services sourcing and talent models are two leading areas offering opportunities for thriving environmental, social, and governance (ESG) initiatives, and they’re easier to access than you think.

Let’s Connect

ESG initiatives: procurement and sustainability go hand in hand

Procurement is in a unique position to make a significant impact on a company’s sustainability and ESG initiatives. Procurement teams live where internal business units and the external ecosystem of suppliers and third parties meet, making them instrumental in aligning sustainability objectives with supplier selection and management.

Forward-looking procurement teams are devising creative solutions to include ESG initiatives across their services spend – turning commitments into actions. They are finding value by challenging traditional service sourcing processes with options like supplier diversity and specialist suppliers, increasing chances for ESG initiative success.

Everest Group insights show that nearly two-thirds of companies are implementing social responsibility into the way they select service providers. And innovative service providers that have adopted ESG and sustainability practices into their own business models are becoming the leading choice.

ESG initiatives: talent strategy with a purpose

When it comes to talent strategy, enterprises are turning to ESG initiatives to meet standards within the workplace, stay up on what’s to come, and reach new talent.

One growing practice benefiting talent models is impact sourcing. Impact sourcing is a socially responsible way to find affordable and untapped talent pools. It offers access to qualified workers with skill sets that match client needs, lower attrition rates, and opportunities to fulfill corporate social responsibility and diversity objectives.

Everest Group serves as the bridge between enterprises and the sourcing industry. We provide a deep level of expertise that clients find invaluable when making critical, strategic decisions related to the services industry.
