One of the human resource outsourcing industry’s fastest growing segments, recruitment process outsourcing (RPO) is a business model in which an employer outsources all or part of its recruitment process to an external service provider with the goal of improving cost, quality, scalability and overall efficiency. RPO providers are third-party companies who possess the proper staff, technologies and methodologies to take on the responsibility of placing top talent into the organizations they serve. They act as brand representatives and extensions of their clients’ internal HR or recruiting functions, with a singular focus on fulfilling their recruitment needs while reducing time-to-hire, improving quality-of-hire and delivering cost savings throughout the process.
So, How Does It Work?
Vanator’s RPO services follow a recruiter-on-demand model, in which we provide as many recruiters as needed to help your organization address spikes in hiring, new business initiatives, product launches, or other business goals. We expand your recruitment capabilities almost immediately, with customizable end-to-end recruitment solutions that can focus on specific markets and fields or encompass hiring needs across practice areas. Our RPO solutions can be tailored to filling specific needs within short time frames, such as in cases where companies are looking to hire new types of teams or meet temporary hiring demands due to scaling. Our contract recruiters can provide service for periods as short as one month or can be leveraged to support ongoing needs for a high-quality talent pool. RPO providers specialize in targeted sourcing strategies and recruiting both active and passive candidates to find the best fits for job requirements. By improving a company’s recruiting and hiring functions, we are able to help create environments in which both management and employees are happier and more productive, and organizations are better positioned for success.
How Is It Different from Traditional Recruiting?
Compared to staffing and search companies, RPOs are able to take more ownership of the management of the recruitment process and can have broader experience and understanding when it comes to filling a high volume of roles across all job levels. These companies themselves are able to find value in RPO providers and benefit from outsourcing their own recruitment processes. Our goal is not only to fill open jobs in the short-term, but to improve our clients’ overall recruiting processes and provide value to their long-term business strategies. By handling clients across industries and working on various projects under a single roof, our recruiters are able to gain insight into all types of domains. RPOs allow organizations to save on costs associated with aspects such as management, training, infrastructure and overhead, by supplementing or even replacing their internal recruiting functions with specialists who are experts in placing qualified candidates. They also free organizations to apply more resources towards other necessities for meeting their strategic goals and delivering value to their customers.
Who Turns to RPO?
Organizations with high-volume or company-wide recruitment needs use RPO providers to streamline hiring costs, decrease time-to-fill and improve candidate quality. Vanator’s RPO services combine dedicated recruiters with advanced technology and proven hiring processes to enhance our clients’ talent acquisition functions. Whether organizations are lacking in the proper recruiting focus and resources, seeking assistance for recruiting in specific functional areas, running into stagnant talent pools, or are even too large to centrally handle recruiting for many temporary projects, we can help manage recruitment functions while providing cost efficiency.
