Are you familiar with Recruitment Process Outsourcing or RPO? While the concept might sound simple on the outside, there are some things to consider before selecting a service provider to help you source, screen and hire the best possible candidates for your open positions. Before you get started, it’s worth taking a closer look at how RPO can help your company succeed and hire the right people the first time while working with a partner.
Reduction of overall hiring cost.
Many people assume the cost of hiring lies entirely within the salary negotiated between the company and the employee. But there are a lot more steps between sourcing and hiring, and all of them cost money. With an RPO, that cost is built into their services which can reduce your investment.
Ability to scale the hiring process.
What happens when you need 20 people for a short-term job? Dropping all your other duties can set off an unexpected ripple effect which can affect all aspects of your business. Instead, an RPO can dedicate their time to this function and staff your need quickly and efficiently.
Reliable and consistent recruiting.
Sometimes, companies maintain multiple staffing relationships but that means you work with a variety of people and agencies all of whom have their own processes and procedures; however, a dedicated RPO will take the guessing game out of hiring for your company.
Better quality candidates.
These recruiters have been trained and have perfected their skills when it comes to hiring. They know how to source the best possible employees from diverse areas of talent and location. The beneficiary is you and your company as these dedicated recruiters are specializing in your needs.
Increased overall satisfaction.
Of course, your partnership with an RPO should have the end goal of increasing your overall satisfaction with recruiting and productivity. This is when it becomes essential to select the right service to help with your specific needs. RPOs are not one-size-fits-all, so selecting the right service is essential.
Improvement of your reputation.
Lastly, it’s important to know how working with an RPO will affect your overall brand. More and more companies are using social media and other forms of mass communication to reach a wider audience. But it isn’t just customer experiences that drive reputation, it’s all the satisfaction of your team. By working with an RPO, you can develop a positive company culture that will affect your reputation in a positive way.
