Recruitment Process Outsourcing

What is Recruitment Process Outsourcing (RPO)?

RPO stands for recruitment process outsourcing. It is a business model where a company outsources the management of the recruitment function (in whole or part) to a third party expert to drive cost, quality, efficiency, service, and scalability benefits.

The third party RPO vendor is responsible for placing people into that organization. When managed well with a quality provider, RPO can reduce time to hire by 40 percent and deliver cost savings of more than 50 percent.

How does RPO work?

Our StaffingPeoples RPO quality recruitment outsourcing program blends dedicated recruiters, technology, and best practice hiring processes to transform an organization’s talent acquisition function. Aligned to your hiring managers, RPO solutions drive the end-to-end recruitment process from forecasting to sourcing, assessing, placing, on-boarding, and reporting while utilizing expertise, innovative technology, and key performance indicators.

Through clearly defined processes and deep specialization, RPO solutions can dramatically reduce cost-per-hire, time-to-hire, and attrition, plus measurably improve quality of hire, reporting, and scalability, delivering you a far greater return on investment.
