RPO – Recruitment Solutions
from Allegis Group Services
There is no question that RPO is an evolving business solution and there are more and
more recruitment outsourcing providers in the marketplace every day. Many companies are
cautious and apprehensive if this is the right solution for them. We believe there are
several critical components that any organization must consider when selecting an RPO
provider. Your organization’s focus should be on the demonstrated capabilities of the
RPO provider in these areas:
Recruitment Capabilities and Results
Strategic Partnership/Value-Added Services
Recruitment over Process
The difference between a successful and unsuccessful RPO often lies in the fundamental DNA of
the provider. A vendor who is proficient in call center recruitment will find the leap to
corporate/mid-level recruitment an enormous canyon to cross. Our roots in retained executive search
focused our efforts in the relentless recruitment of top-tier talent in the marketplace. Our
focus will upgrade an organization’s talent compared to a firm that focuses on process only.
In actuality, talent hunters who specialize in sourcing, care and closing of candidates should
be at the very heart of any best-practice RPO provider. While maintaining an efficient process
is critical, process should enable the hunter mentality. This provides the most value to the
client and the candidate.
With economic conditions in the market today, companies understand that they are engaging RPO
providers for purposes other than supplementing recruiting needs. Utilizing an RPO engagement
in a volatile economic climate can keep your organization lean and efficient. In a majority of
instances, RPO will be a cost efficient measure. Companies, who are looking for flexible
recruitment solutions that scale up and down depending upon hiring spikes, should recognize
that cost is important in terms of selecting a provider. An RPO provider should deliver
savings, however a true RPO provider is an investment into the recruitment of quality hires.
The real value of RPO will be determined by its ability to deliver on business strategy
through full client partnership.
Strategic Relationship/Value-Added Services
An RPO provider should be able to guide you through the process of building, identifying and
selecting the best recruitment practices for the acquisition of diverse talent. Providers
should develop customized solutions to meet long term goals by creating programs that differ
with each engagement. An RPO provider can help clients understand demographic changes in the
work force, give competitive intelligence, develop modules to educate staff, build networks,
attend conferences and capture the effectiveness of specific recruitment strategies.
Talent Acquisition can make one of the greatest impacts on the strategic capabilities of the
organization. Recruitment Outsourcing solutions drive businesses to rapidly acquire high
performing staff, optimize their workforce and reduce operational costs and risks, while
benefiting from unparalleled recruitment expertise. We believe it is very important that
you select a provider who fits into your culture and who becomes a true partner to you.
