Recruitment Process Outsourcing Services

The recruitment landscape has changed significantly over the past decade, with recruitment process outsourcing gaining popularity. Outsourcing has emerged as a number one solution for organizations looking to cut hiring costs and manage fluctuating hiring demands. The human resource teams at smaller organizations often have to wear multiple hats performing various functions, including payroll, benefits, compensation, admin, compliance, and hiring and recruiting.

RPO providers help organizations of all sizes to manage recruiting processes by outsourcing. This allows businesses to save variable costs, brings scalability to their hiring needs, and provides flexibility during lean and peak demand cycles. Recruitment Process Outsourcing (RPO) offers different RPO engagement models to suit the needs of every business and industry, along with varying pricing models.

But how are RPO services different from traditional recruiting and recruitment outsourcing? Learn below.

What is the Difference Between Outsourced Recruiting and RPO Services?

Unlike other outsourced recruiting models, recruitment process outsourcing services offer strategic partnerships that bring value-added benefits, including analysis & planning, candidate care, and more. Below are some significant differences between traditional recruitment outsourcing and offshore/nearshore RPO services.

  1. Analysis and Planning

RPO service providers help their clients identify business needs for recruitment and understand the hiring requirements for future projects along with the current conditions. An effective RPO provider works with your business goals and helps forecast staffing needs so they can respond to the requirements, including seasonal demands allowing flexibility and scalability. Recruitment process outsourcing services are better than traditional recruitment outsourcing due to the advantage it gives businesses to scale their hiring requirements according to the demand or business goals.

  1. Job Marketing Management

Recruitment outsourcing or staffing outsourcing done the traditional way does not provide extensive job marketing. However, RPO services include job marketing through various job boards and social media platforms helping drive candidate sourcing. RPO companies’ job marketing also helps build a strong employer brand and attract potential candidates to apply for the vacancies.

  1. Talent Sourcing and Engagement

RPO providers help clients find top talent and build the employer’s brand and recognition. Recruitment process outsourcing services offer dedicated talent sourcing services to help develop a talent community and create a talent network of suitable candidates for current and future requisitions. RPO services enable the development of a talent pipeline and engage in sourcing candidates in advance through forecasting and sourcing assessments.

  1. Assessment and Interviews

RPO companies help clients find the most suitable candidates by assisting them in outsourcing assessment and background check services. Dedicated recruiters working for clients guide the candidates through the recruitment process and assess their core skills and competencies, making them the right fit for the job. RPO providers have the necessary domain experience to understand the job and skill requirements for a particular industry to enable them to find suitable candidates.

  1. Candidate Experience

One of the most significant advantages of recruitment outsourcing over traditional recruiting is candidate experience. RPO services are a great way to ensure a positive candidate experience as dedicated recruiters take candidates through the recruitment process, engaging and managing communication with potential candidates throughout the journey. Whether the candidate is selected or rejected or accepts or rejects the job offer, RPO providers maintain good relationships with all candidates, strengthening the talent pipeline and developing a huge network of potential candidates.
