Most organisations would measure the value of any investment by increased efficiencies and/or reduction in costs. As the proposition of planning for any headcount becomes increasingly uncertain and talent acquisition teams become more and more stretched, working with an RPO (recruitment process outsourcing) provides a versatile, agile and cost-effective way of recruiting new talent. This isn’t just for the traditional volume fill (contact centres etc), but the proposition of an RPO can act as an extension of the existing TA team supporting in strategic hiring and future planning.
Here are a number of benefits that using the right RPO provider can deliver:
1) Increased speed of hire
