Recruitment Process Outsourcing (RPO)
There is no question that RPO is an evolving business solution and there
are more and more recruitment outsourcing providers in the marketplace
every day. We believe there are several critical components that
any organization must consider when selecting an RPO provider. Your
organizational focus should be on the demonstrated capabilities of the
RPO provider in these areas:
Recruitment Capabilities and Results
Strategic Partnership/Value-Added Services
The difference between a successful and
unsuccessful RPO often lies in the fundamental DNA of the provider. A
vendor who is proficient in sales management recruitment will find the leap to
corporate/mid-level IT recruitment an enormous canyon to cross. Our
roots in very specific technology orientated search
focused our efforts in the relentless recruitment of top-tier talent in the marketplace. Our
focus will upgrade an organization's talent compared to a firm that focuses on process only.
While maintaining an efficient process
is critical, process should enable getting the right talent - not the
right resume. This provides the most value to the
client and the candidate and is a core competency of our team.
With economic conditions in the market today, companies understand that they are engaging RPO
providers for purposes other than supplementing recruiting needs. Utilizing an RPO engagement
in a volatile economic climate can keep your organization lean and efficient. In a majority of
instances, RPO will be a cost efficient measure. Companies, who are looking for flexible
recruitment solutions that scale up and down depending upon hiring spikes, should recognize
that cost is important in terms of selecting a provider. An RPO provider should deliver
savings, however a true RPO provider is an investment into the recruitment of quality hires.
The real value of RPO will be determined by its ability to deliver on business strategy
through full client partnership.
Strategic Relationship/Value-Added Services
An RPO provider should be able to guide you through the process of building, identifying and
selecting the best recruitment practices for the acquisition of diverse talent. Providers
should develop customized solutions to meet long term goals by creating programs that differ
with each engagement. An RPO provider can help clients understand demographic changes in the
work force, give competitive intelligence, develop modules to educate staff, build networks,
attend conferences and capture the effectiveness of specific recruitment strategies.
Talent Acquisition can make one of the greatest impacts on the strategic
capabilities of the organization. Recruitment Outsourcing solutions
drive businesses to rapidly acquire high performing staff, optimize
their workforce and reduce operational costs and risks, while benefiting
from unparalleled recruitment expertise. We believe it is very important
that you select a provider who fits into your culture and who becomes a
true partner to you.
