Orion Talent Joins Everest Group’s Impact Sourcing Pledge & Clinton Global Initiative
April 25, 2023- Cary, NC - Orion Talent is proud to announce it has joined Everest Group’s Impact Sourcing Pledge to connect hundreds of thousands of under-represented individuals to new jobs. In addition to all of the work that Orion already does in matching military veterans with rewarding careers, Orion pledges to further help businesses hire, train, and retain a more stable workforce by hiring traditionally marginalized workers including women, young people, and economically and socially disadvantaged individuals.
“Over the next three years, Everest Group is helping industry partners grow the impact sourcing workforce from 350,000 to 500,000 full-time-equivalent workers,” said Former President Bill Clinton, recognizing Everest Group’s Impact Sourcing Pledge at the September 2022 Clinton Global Initiative meeting. “To do this, Everest will work within the impact sourcing ecosystem to develop job readiness programs and encourage incentive programs and hiring mandates that expand opportunities for both employees and employers.”
Through impact sourcing, organizations hire and provide career development opportunities to individuals from marginalized communities globally while simultaneously meeting or exceeding their business objectives, driving efficiency and social justice simultaneously. “We are thrilled to have Orion Talent join our movement to scale impact sourcing and applaud its unique focus on veterans and military spouses,” said Rita N. Soni, Principal Analyst, Impact Sourcing and Sustainability Research at Everest Group.
“We are excited to join Everest Group’s Commitment to Action and bring job opportunities to under-represented communities throughout North America,” said Laura Schmiegel, Senior Vice President, Strategic Partnerships, at Orion Talent. “Impact sourcing is a powerful way of reaching segments of the labor force that have historically been left out. Orion is committed to diversity hiring and sustainable workforce development to bring opportunity to everyone.”
Orion Talent proudly joins Everest Group and other partner companies in their commitment to grow the impact sourcing market significantly over the next three years. You can read more about this partnership here.
