RPO stands for Recruitment Process Outsourcing. What exactly does that mean?
To outsource your recruitment process is to hand over all your recruitment tasks and responsibilities. However, it’s not just for companies with no recruitment processes already in place. RPO can be used on a project by project basis, or it can be a complete option for those companies without their own recruitment department.
So, here are 5 key benefits of using RPO for your recruitment needs:
Utilising experienced recruiters who already have a talent pool at their fingertips will save your company money and reduce the overall time to hire.
Reduces retention rates
RPO providers are more likely to provide quality hires due to their awareness of the candidate market and their ability to match a candidate not just with a job role, but with a company. Quality candidates make quality employees, thereby increasing retention rates.
Scalable and flexible
An RPO is entirely scalable to your business needs. So, if you suddenly have an urgent need for new hires, an RPO can scale up. Or, save resources if your recruitment needs aren’t as high as you originally thought.
Enhances your employer brand
An RPO provider becomes an extension of your business, taking the time to get to know your business so that they can represent you accurately. So, recruitment attraction campaigns they undertake on your behalf can focus on promoting and enhancing your employer brand.
Quality candidate experience
RPO providers are experienced in crafting job advertisements and liaising with candidates right from the beginning of the recruitment process. They can provide continual support to candidates and ensure they have everything they need. A great candidate experience can give your company the edge in this candidate driven market.
