Recruitment Process Outsourcing (RPO): What is it and What not!

We all know what BPO is, right? So, RPO is a special kind of business process outsourcing where the outsourced business is nothing but the recruitment process.

So, recruitment process outsourcing, as it is called, is much more than what exactly we know recruiting is.

In a RPO partnership between an organization with recruitment requirements and the organization providing recruitment services the former’s brand gets promoted over the latter’s.

Recruitment Process outsourcing companies service providers manage part or all of the recruitment processes for the external company. Clearly, RPO service providers are not outsourcing the business in the traditional format but there is a lot of scope of consultation and customisation.

Therefore, RPO is definitely more than usual recruiting.

What RPO is certainly not is the one size fits all formula! It’s anything but that. Recruitment process outsourcing is certainly far away from recruitment process offloading! Yes, it’s certainly not offloading a particular process of an organization but only outsourcing a chunk of the process to a professional who is more than a headhunter or a staffing agency.

Elements of the RPO Services

Recruitment Process Outsourcing generally is a customized service for a client’s recruiting solution that improvises the existing processes of the client and takes on the ownership of a major part of that recruiting process.

Some of the salient features of RPO are:

  • Requirement analysis
  • Candidate research
  • Reporting and Audits
  • Compliance tracking
  • Hiring Manager Training
  • Recruitment Process Mapping
  • Technology Consulting
  • Third Party Vendor Management

A professional RPO service provider will take ownership of the recruiting design and management of the process and also the responsibility of the outcome.

Why RPO?

Who needs a RPO? That organization that is looking for a headhunter or a staffing agency? Or something beyond that? Well, Recruitment process outsourcing is more than just recruiting. It’s a relationship beyond just outsourcing, it’s a commitment to boost the employment brand by the day, find the cream talent that justify the positions and not just fill those job openings!
