Process Your Recruitment Process With Outstrading Management Strategy

What is Recruitment Process Outsourcing (RPO)?

Recruitment process outsourcing (RPO) is a type of business process outsourcing (BPO) where an employer transfers all or part of its recruitment processes to a third party service provider, according to the Recruitment Process Outsourcing Association (RPOA). An RPO provider can offer its own or may assume the company’s staff, technology, methodologies, and reporting.

In all cases, RPO differs immensely from providers such as staffing companies and contingent/ retained search providers in that it expect ownership of the design and management of the recruitment process and the responsibility of results.

Why consider RPO?

Depending on what an organization is searching for, an RPO solution can bring an array of many benefits including managing hiring variations throughout the year, reducing total recruiting cost and dependency on staffing agencies, improving hiring manager satisfaction, reducing time-to-fill, artistic employment brand, improving candidate experience; simplifying or simplifying the hiring process; and saving time for other duties among other benefits.

Analysis And Planning

When run adequately, RPO providers work with their clients to recognize the business side of recruitment or business goals. They help clients determine staffing needs and plan the necessary resources to respond to these needs, which help achieve those business goals.

Extensive Job Marketing

RPO providers market client jobs through job boards, social media, referrals, and networking to drive candidate revelation to jobs and employer brand (a major differentiator from staffing solutions).

Sourcing And Engaging Talent

In addition to searching talent, RPO providers build up employment brand and recognition; engage future capability talent through talent communities and talent pipelines; and source candidates in advance and with multiple sourcing assessments.

Candidate Assessments

RPO providers determine candidates, guide them through the initiation of the recruitment process, and make sure they have the core skills, competencies, and motivators to do the job.

Candidate Care
