What is Recruitment Process Outsourcing or RPO?
Gone are the days when an organisation would accommodate secondary functions for the core process under the same workspace. Not only does it clutter the working area and lead to congestion but it warrants unnecessary investment in maintaining support administrative functions. In the advancing days with growing influence and integration of technology, today employers and enterprises are choosing the retain their main focus only on the core process, be it manufacturing or service oriented and outsource corollary functions to individual units that specialize exclusively in the field or expertise. This way the leadership can concentrate on their core competency and growth of the organisation while having secondary deliverables outsourced to other locations outside the workspace.
Recruitment Process Outsourcing (RPO) is when a company, firm or organisation transfers all or part of their permanent recruitment responsibilities to be handled by an exclusive recruitment specialist.
An RPO partner can act as an existing appendage of the company’s HR or Resourcing function, working closely with an offshore team on behalf of the client in providing seamless hiring solutions. The ideal RPO partner is one who can deliver the workforce match leveraging the benefits of technology while adhering to process guidelines in order to fulfil the client’s recruitment requirements.
