The Recruitment Process Outsourcing Association defines recruitment process outsourcing (RPO) as a form of business process outsourcing (BPO) where an employer transfers all or part of its recruitment processes to an external service provider. An RPO provider can provide its own or may assume the company’s staff, technology, methodologies and reporting. In all cases, RPO differs greatly from providers such as staffing companies and contingent/ retained search providers in that it assumes ownership of the design and management of the recruitment process and the responsibility of results
Currently, we are providing recruiting support services (RPO) to clients across India for candidates sourcing, resumes searching and screening on leading job boards, short listing potential candidates resumes, communicate with candidates via email and phone and route only interested candidates resumes to executive or technical recruiters of our client companies. This helps executive and technical recruiters to focus on their core functions what they do best; networking, build relationships, interview and hire candidates.
Is RPO for you? Or are you looking for a solution that’s different from hiring a headhunter or a staffing agency? If so, then recruitment process outsourcing may be a good choice for your recruiting needs. Remember, that RPO is much more of a relationship than other outsourcing services, and recruitment process outsourcing is much more than paying someone else to do it all for you. You need to be committed to boosting your employment brand and to finding the best talent possible, instead of filling positions and simply finding people who are qualified
RPO providers assume ownership of the design and management of the recruitment process and the responsibility of results. So, a provider will do more than X and Y for a company, but work with company resources to improve upon recruiting processes and recruiting results. This makes it easier for clients to hold providers accountable and to hire the right talent for the company, instead of simply keeping positions filled.
