Incentives & Opportunities for Scaling the "Impact Sourcing" Sector
|Avasant carried out a comprehensive study with the support of the Rockefeller Foundation with the goal of providing recommendations for governments and industry to implement and scale Impact Sourcing based on global best practices that align policies and incentives to industry needs.|
Impact Sourcing has the effect of raising the spirits and dreams of individuals that have never had an opportunity to be part of the Global Economy. We hope that Avasant’s collaboration with the Rockefeller Foundation on this project will yield poverty reduction, not just in emerging countries, but also in more developed economies.

Impact Sourcing provides an enormous opportunity for governments to harness the skills and talents of often marginalized populations, and put them to work in good sustainable jobs. The Rockefeller Foundation is proud to have funded this important report from Avasant. Identifying the right policies for governments to establish a thriving impact sourcing sector is integral to its success and ultimately in creating employment options for poor and vulnerable people.

For governments around the world, Impact Sourcing takes advantage of business imperatives to expand the supply of labor while simultaneously generating large scale employment for poor and vulnerable people. With the endorsement and backing of governments, buyers and suppliers of IT services have an opportunity to implement a sustainable socially responsible sourcing model at an affordable price.
