Understanding Recruitment Process Outsourcing

Recruiting has its costs—every company commits resources to ensure regulations are met, new hires are vetted, and its values are upheld during new-employee onboarding. But for companies that hire numerous seasonal, temporary, or project-specific workers such costs may be inefficient. And this is where Recruitment Process Outsourcing (RPO) comes in.

Why RPO?

You already know that talent is critical to your business’s success—your organization needs skilled people who are able to complete your projects when required. To fill many permanent vacant roles, an in-house Human Resources specialist or a Recruitment Consultant is the smart move to find the right worker. But ask yourself, when recruiting for non-permanent roles, do you really want your internal staff (sometimes your HR team, but often the Operations or Sales Managers) vetting resumes, checking qualifications and performing skill-testing?

For companies that require, say, a dozen skilled and ticketed workers at short notice, it helps to have a pipeline of talent that can be tapped into. And for companies that employ many low-skilled workers, it is inefficient to commit the salaries of HR professionals to a steady stream of reference checks and interviews. Short-term or long-term, such high volume hiring can make costs-per-hire frustratingly high.
