Recruitment Process Outsourcing (RPO) is a form of Business Process Outsourcing (BPO), where an employer transfers all or part of their recruiting process to an external recruiting service provider. Many companies have strong talent acquisition teams, but find RPO an effective way to supplement their recruitment efforts, especially when hiring requirements increase or become difficult to fill.  By finding the right specialty team of recruiters, an RPO team can make a big impact in meeting your company’s hiring needs. When hiring demands slow down, an RPO firm can decrease recruiting resources so a client only pays for the services they need.

Corporate hiring requirements are often complex and changing. Finding, recruiting and hiring top talent is a huge competitive advantage in the marketplace. Partnering with an RPO firm can help employers manage recruitment needs more effectively to meet the demands of the business.  RPO recruiters can work collaboratively with a company’s talent acquisition team, understand the company’s corporate culture and values, and are 100% committed to the client’s needs. An RPO firm can customize a recruitment plan tailored to a company’s needs, leverage new technology and recruitment tools, and utilize a deep candidate network to identify and approach talented candidates.

Reasons an RPO solution is attractive

  • It is flexible and scalable.
  • Specialty recruiters are focused on your needs.
  • Expert RPO recruiters improve the candidate and client experience.
  • Offers lower costs per hire, a deeper candidate pool, and measurable results.

Answering these questions will help you choose the right RPO firm

  • What type and how many candidates/resources do I need to hire?
  • What is my budget? Make sure you can afford the costs of RPO and you have an idea of what your return on investment would be. An experienced firm can give you a good idea of how challenging your openings are, determine an accurate estimate of costs, and a good faith estimate of how many qualified candidates they can produce.
  • Does the RPO have the depth of resources and can they attract the best candidates for my openings?
  • Does the RPO understand our culture, the nuances of our working environment, and what it takes to be a successful employee?
  • Are they flexible? Can they scale up or down based on my needs?
