Our Story

It began with a desire to uncover the secrets of finding the unfindable using the latest in sourcing technology. This drive led to the creation of The Sourcing Institute (TSI), the first ever online school dedicated to talent sourcing and recruiting, which has grown to become the fountainhead of knowledge for successful sourcers, recruiters, and talent acquisition leaders.

In 1996, we founded the Talent Sourcing category and have been creating Sustainable Talent Advantages for recruitment organizations and individuals ever since. We have implemented highly successful Enterprise Solutions for many Fortune 100 Companies, and the majority of our graduates get promoted or increase billings within 6 months. TSI offers the only comprehensive diagnostic, design, & delivery developmental and advisory program in the industry, fully customized to focus only on knowledge and skill gaps, saving time and money.

Our recruitment curriculum is delivered via university-style online modules, instructor-led virtual workshops, and in-person onsite. Our solutions will produce an increase of a minimum 30% in overall productivity. When all of the recommended methods are deployed, many have been able to gain an increase in efficiency of 200% and higher within the first year after completing the program, with momentum extending that growth additionally over the second and third years.

TSI employs an intimate, hands-on, and extraordinarily thorough approach, and leaves no stone unturned. We are the most experienced and affordable solution in the market.
