What is RPO?
Recruitment Process Outsourcing, or RPO, is one of the most in-demand services available on the market today. Recruitment Process Outsourcing means contracting out your organization’s recruitment function to an outside company. From construction companies to manufacturers, banks to retail chains, and insurance companies to utilities, businesses in many industries choose RPO.
So, why outsource your recruiting?
Why outsource something you can do yourself? Consider these questions: Why do you go to a restaurant when you can cook yourself? Why do you go to a doctor when you can search your symptoms online? Simply put: cost and efficiency. Every company is looking for cost and time savings, and when you don’t have the time or resources to focus on hiring quality candidates, an RPO solution can help. If you don’t have to hire recruiting staff, you save on staffing costs like salaries, benefits, training, payroll taxes, among others.
Maybe your company does have the staff to recruit, but leaving a position unfilled for a long time is costly to your organization’s productivity. Hiring the wrong person is even more costly. Using a professional recruitment service is an investment that will give results and do so within your deadlines. You don’t have to burden your current staff with recruitment or allow the slack to build up.
- Focus on your business: Outsourcing business functions like recruiting frees your company to focus on building your brand and delivering value to your customers.
- Access to technology and leading recruitment tools: RPO providers dedicate 100% of their time to finding qualified candidates for companies. RPO providers use the latest technologies and newest job search tools for finding active and passive job seekers.
- They are the experts: RPO companies have years of experience in recruiting for companies of all sizes and in all fields. They understand details of screening, interviewing and finally hiring candidates that you can only imagine. Choosing a good RPO provider will take away the guesswork from your hiring process.
- They have hundreds of suitable candidates in their databases: Most of these candidates may not know about your company, let alone a job posting you have placed on the internet. Without their invaluable connection, you could miss out on talent that would change your organization.
