Talent GuideSource multiple roles to fulfill a team need for learning professionals

Strategic resourcing of the learning function is often achieved through a combination of internal resources, suppliers, and independent learning talent. This strategy provides flexibility to respond to temporary surges in demand or access to the necessary expertise

AllenComm Talent provides clients with access to an extensive network of learning and development professionals that meet our high standards for quality. We can augment the output of your existing team, expand access to learning experts, or quickly respond to unforeseen changes in resourcing needs. Depending on your needs, we can source talent based on industry experience in healthcare, finance, insurance, manufacturing, etc., or domain expertise in onboarding, sales, compliance, leadership, or skills development

We provide a free consult with a talent expert. Or you can start the process yourself with our short assessment

“Because we’re learning leaders, first and foremost, our analysis of your staffing and talent needs is paramount and a key differentiator. Unlike transactional recruiters, we’re not looking for the right keywords. We’re looking for expertise, and we break that down into capabilities, specializations, experiences, interpersonal factors, and more. Our goal is to partner with you and share ideas. We provide you with recommendations and not resumes.”

Outsourcing of Learning Roles or Team Functions

Often, the need for learning talent isn’t for an individual or even a few individuals. The answer may be to outsource certain learning functions or roles. This can range from partial outsourcing of a function, such as learning operations or eLearning development, to managed learning services (MLS) or business process outsourcing (BPO). At AllenComm, we design a workforce outsourcing plan specific to your needs. This may help with the implementation of new learning technologies or new programs. It may also provide efficiencies that enable you to better leverage your in-house learning leaders and experts.


  • Expert analysis and advisement from experienced learning leaders (not recruiters) 
  • A custom workforce outsourcing plan based on your needs and objectives 
  • Full outsourcing, following an MLS or BPO model 
  • Outsourcing of targeted functions such as elearning development, learning tech administration, course facilitation, course maintenance, etc.  
  • Consolidating data reporting and oversight  


  • Better upfront alignment on goals and objectives 
  • A tailored plan that balances your needs, costs, and timeline–not a one-size-fits-all solution 
  • Focus on your business expertise, and we’ll bring the learning expertise  
  • Fill gaps in your expertise and capacity  
  • Minimize overhead and administration 

Placement of Full- or Part-Time Learning Professionals

Over the last twenty years, as new learning technologies and approaches have evolved, the range of capabilities and types of specializations within the learning profession have grown exponentially. Finding the right talent for your in-house team can take months when you factor in all the process steps. This timeline only grows as the criteria for the role become more specific.
