RecruitWest are the Experts in RPO
Recruitment Process Outsourcing (RPO) is basically the outsourcing of all, or part, of an organisation’s recruitment to a third-party recruitment specialist. When managed well, RPO can reduce the time needed to hire someone by up to 40 per cent and provide cost savings of more than 50 per cent.
I read an article a little while back called “Tips Around Selecting the Right Agency” which I wanted to share with everyone for all the wrong reasons and pull the article apart. When I read back over the article I realised it wasn’t a bad article and had some good information, it was simply the title that was wrong! If the article had been called for example “Tips Around Selecting an External Recruitment Consultant” the information would’ve fit, just not to selecting an agency.
There are a lot of companies out there that claim to be RPO providers. When RPO started to grow in popularity, just about every company that had anything to do with recruiting or recruiting functions added recruitment process outsourcing to their list of services.
The business conditions in today’s economic environment have created unique challenges for companies to remain competitive and viable.
