Recruitment process outsourcing (RPO) is an industry born from the Internet and the impact of receiving hundreds of electronic applications for every open position. Recruiters couldn’t handle the administrative load, thus RPO took root. It has since evolved to be a strategic partner. Working with a trusted RPO firm, an employer can transfer all or some part of its business’s recruitment processes to an external service provider.
Top RPO companies offer recruiting alternatives that streamline an organization’s hiring process for today and long into the future. RPO partners deliver excellence, cost savings, scalability, and a technology stack and predictive analysis to provide clients with access to the top talent according to the company’s needs and capabilities.
How Is the RPO Industry Different From a Staffing Agency?
With a traditional staffing agency, the primary purpose of the staffing firm is to connect an employer and a candidate with the best qualifications and overall potential fit with the company. Once that position has been filled, it is usually the end of the relationship between the staffing firm and client until the client needs an employee for a different position.
An RPO firm takes traditional staffing and recruiting to the next level to meet more structural and big-picture needs for valued clients. RPO organizations and clients become strategic partners throughout the recruitment process. The RPO company works as an extension of the client business. The RPO team may take on tasks such as planning, technology, research, brand, and processes — serving in a more on-site and hands-on capacity.
The RPO partner often takes on some or all parts of the recruitment process for the business, working together to find the best solution for specific needs. This approach allows the RPO organization to maximize its staff, resources, pipelines, technology, and methodology. All of these tools are used to find exceptional candidates and create a large and readily available talent pool, based on the company’s goals.
