RPO Management


Hire the folks that do this best so that your company can focus on what you do best!

Megatrend:  More and more companies and their Human Resources departments are looking for ways to reduce costs without sacrificing quality hiring practices. Coupled with other megatrends…

  • Retiring “baby-boomers” are causing our U.S. workforce to fall short of needed numbers to fill critical management positions.
  • Generational differences in work ethic, attitudes as well as education and training shortfalls or mismatching of skills.
  • Changing workplace requirements & expectations of the employer.
  • Globalization and competition for jobs has intensified.
  • Traditional ways of finding talent has changed and the necessity for Social Media and direct recruiting has increased. Finding top talent can no longer be managed as simply running ads, processing the applications and hoping that you can hire the best talent.

Outsourcing the search & recruitment processes from the company Human Resources department has become a very attractive alternative and megatrend that has caught much attention from employers. The RPO has become a creative way to help align the RPO with the organization’s needs to adapt to the multitude of megatrends that are impacting employment within the United States. Thus we have the creation of the Recruitment Process Outsourcing (RPO) industry. The RPO industry has grown from $.6Billion in 2008 to $1.4Billion in 2011 or a 33% increase.  The RPO meets the needs of the client employer around some of the most direct and measurable benefits that we have discussed below.

Definition:  A RPO is a partnering concept whereby a client outsources the search & recruitment processes entirely or in part out to a RPO, a company with expertise in search & recruitment and who has systems in place to offer client certain benefits that they didn’t enjoy in performing these duties themselves.
