As long-time supporters of Impact Sourcing and Corporate Social Responsibility, IAOP, The Rockefeller Foundation and Global Impact Sourcing Coalition (GISC) launched this award in 2017 to raise awareness, share best practices, test models and measure the progress of this socially responsible business practice.
Impact Sourcing happens when organizations intentionally hire and provide career development opportunities for people who otherwise have limited prospects for sustainable employment. Impact Sourcing can provide the start of a meaningful career path leading to a lifetime of full employment and can happen in any geography.
Examples of Impact Sourcing in Practice:
- Creating jobs in underserved communities or emerging markets where high unemployment exists
- Intentionally hiring workers who have fewer prospects for sustainable jobs and providing them training
- Hiring people with disabilities
- Hiring women where there is a disproportionately high unemployment rate for women
- Creating a positive impact on local communities by creating employment opportunities
- Earn-while-you-learn training programs
- Creating job opportunities for refugees or rescued victims
The Global Impact Sourcing Award will evaluate how buyers or providers are creating jobs in underserved areas. These could be anywhere in the world and criteria would be based on how they impact local communities with these jobs and the efforts undertaken to ensure success in these communities, i.e., outreach and training programs.
Leadership teams from customer or provider companies of any size are eligible for this recognition and will self-nominate through an online application. IAOP membership is not required to apply or be recognized.
Winners of the 2019 Global Impact Souring Award will be selected by a judging panel from IAOP's CSR Committee.
The Global Impact Sourcing Award will be presented at OWS19 in Orlando.
