4 Things You Need to Know About RPO

Attracting and retaining the best talent in today’s candidate-driven market is no easy feat. To make it easier, however, many organizations are turning to Recruitment Process Outsourcing (RPO) providers to help improve their talent acquisition process.

RPO providers can efficiently manage every element of an organization’s talent acquisition process, utilizing their expertise to implement a process that will attract the right talent to fit an organization’s specific needs. As many companies struggle to fill their open positions, there’s no better time to elicit the help of an expert RPO team and uncover all the benefits they provide first-hand.


How Will an RPO Provider Benefit Your Organization? 


1. Candidate Experience 

RPO experts specialize in providing a seamless candidate experience through their white-glove service during every step of the talent acquisition process. With the defined, proven processes and techniques they have in place and their access to broad talent pools, RPO partners can consistently reduce the time-to-hire for their clients.

When it comes down to it, the candidate experience could be the principal reason whether or not someone accepts a job offer. Candidates should be treated with the best care from the moment they apply for a job until the moment they cut ties with your company. Today’s candidates could be tomorrow’s customers, so even if they don’t accept a job with your company, it’s still important to leave them with a great experience. RPO providers work on optimizing the candidate experience everyday – it’s what they do best.


2. Dedicated Teams 

If your organization decides to partner with an experienced RPO provider, you can expect a dedicated team of recruiters, sourcers, and coordination professionals who will act as a seamless extension of your organization. The RPO team will work full-time, branded as a part of your company, immersing themselves into your culture and making it easier to sell your organization to candidates. They can also help enhance your employer brand to help you initially attract top talent, because they know first-hand what candidates want from employers today.

When an RPO provider is dedicated to one client at a time, the candidates in their talent pool are not being submitted for job roles at several companies, so your organization won’t have to stress over competing offers. Your dedicated talent partner will give all their resources to your organization and be available to meet your ever-changing needs.


3. Scalability 

One of the main reasons companies choose an RPO program to solve their talent ills is due to the potential for scalability. RPO providers can help organizations with as little or as much of their talent acquisition process as they want – it’s completely up to the client. An RPO solution is ideal for organizations who regularly face fluctuating demand.

If your business is growing at a rate that outpaces your expectations and needs more talent to meet the demand, an RPO team can fill open positions quickly using their talent pool of top candidates. On the other hand, if your business needs to scale back, it can do so with no consequence from your RPO partner. In the end, a scalable RPO solution will produce cost savings for your organization while delivering on your talent goals.


4. Technology and Reporting

It’s no secret that technology has become a key component of most companies’ talent acquisition processes today. An experienced RPO provider will have access to the latest innovative technology and will always be at the forefront of the next best tools including AI and RPA. These advanced technologies can enhance your organization’s talent acquisition process by utilizing sourcing tools to find the best candidates while meeting diversity goals, tools to communicate with candidates throughout the entire process, onboarding tools, scheduling tools, etc. And if your organization doesn’t want to pay for its own technology, you can use an RPO partner’s best-in-class technology to avoid that costly expense.

It’s vital for companies to stay on top of business reporting and analytics if they want to succeed. You won’t know if you need to make any changes within your organization if you aren’t continuously tracking analytics to gain visibility into your processes and outcomes. An RPO provider will also provide best practices to ensure you are putting the right data in, getting the right data out, and tracking the right metrics including time-to-fill, cost-per-hire, diversity percentages, retention rates, etc. Having data about every step of your talent acquisition process is essential for having an efficient hiring process.
