The majority of companies will reach a point in their development where they will ask this question; Do you want to hire in-house or outsource the recruitment process (RPO)? Both options have their merits, but the decision ultimately depends on the scope of the project. Let’s first discuss what RPO is and how it works.
In recruitment process outsourcing, companies or employers transfer some or all of the talent acquisition and hiring responsibility to a third-party recruitment agency. An external recruitment service provider acts as an extension of a company’s HR department. The advantage of having an employee assistance program in-house is that you get the team’s full attention. RPO agencies, however, can tackle many tasks in addition to recruiting.
An in-house team will have a better understanding of your company brand, industry, and your specific hiring needs. As HR professionals, they can have multiple responsibilities, such as planning and developing workforces, managing employee relations, implementing employee engagement programs, and recruiting, among others.
When it comes to managing responsibilities, RPOs providers provide flexibility. Employers can get guidance on effective workforce planning, employer branding, training, and development, as well as building long-term talent pools from these experts.
HR departments face a catch 22 situation where recruiting assignments can fall behind if the team is already overburdened. In the same way, hiring can take up valuable time from their other HR responsibilities. If this scenario sounds all too familiar continue reading to learn about the additional benefits that RPO partnerships can have for your business!
Drastically Reduce Talent Acquisition Costs
An RPO solution can offer organizations many benefits, and this is one of the most common reasons for choosing it. It’s not uncommon for companies to spend crazy amounts of money on headhunters and job boards, money which is then wasted from high turnover rates.
By using an RPO provider, your company can drastically cut back on those costs. Advertisements in traditional, expensive outlets can be omitted as It is the RPO company’s responsibility to find the candidates.
Some companies are simply wasting time with outdated hiring processes and old tech. An RPO can help you reduce costs by simplifying your recruiting process and showing you how to find better candidates, faster and more cheaply than you ever thought possible!
Unique & Quality Candidates
The hiring manager understands that a great candidate means more than just experience, education, and previous accomplishments. People under time pressure or those whose resumes are overwhelming may not pay attention to qualities that determine whether or not a new hire will stick with the job long-term. RPO services can tap into those qualities while still finding candidates with the necessary skills and experience.
RPO providers constantly update their candidate databases, resulting in the best possible candidates that you otherwise wouldn’t have access to. To put it simply, RPO providers will present clients with the very best talent for the job. RPO’s nurture a strong network of candidates who are actively engaged, resulting in a community for future hiring needs. This unique talent pool has the added benefit of contributing to a diverse and inclusive workforce.
Ease of Scalability
RPO is also great for companies that are growing rapidly, that may need extra help in scaling their recruiting capacity to meet growth. RPO can handle multiple hires across numerous regions and global markets at once, making it easier for you to scale your talent acquisition efforts.
A company’s hiring needs vary throughout the year according to its goals and targets. As a result, it can be difficult to know with certainty how many employees are needed for optimal workplace productivity. Good RPO firms will anticipate and handle such situations easily. Regardless of companies hiring needs, RPO providers have the structures in place to adapt!
