Talent Spot | Changing World of RPO Offers New Solutions

Recruitment Process Outsourcing has become much more than just a solution for high-volume permanent placement, and as such, organizations need to be prepared to harness and leverage the additional assets RPO can provide.


When RPO was introduced twenty years ago, organizations were not accustomed to outsourcing their recruitment function – they were looking for cost savings. Today, it is about talent acquisition transformation through agility, effectiveness, candidate experience and proven results.


Sophisticated RPO programs can (and should) be designed to respond to the marketplace in real-time. The talent acquisition team must evolve beyond their internal and external engagement and be structured to ensure agility and resilience. This is the key to transformation in today’s economic climate.


Recruitment Process Outsourcing (RPO) programs often start with an expectation of lower cost-of-hire and reduced time-to-fill as the endgame. These goals are certainly worthy of achieving, but they are also finite. What happens when all possible costs are reduced? What happens when all reasonable expectations for time-to-fill have been met?


Transformation requires next-level thinking and action by both the employer and provider. To help organizations increase the effectiveness of their RPO strategies, there are some key elements that have been identified to combine and form an ecosystem that’s ripe for transformation:


Leadership: Transforming talent acquisition is a big effort and needs to be driven from the top. An internal communications plan with key messages for leaders to consistently drive is essential.


Branding: A best-in-class RPO provider will execute an organization’s existing employer brand strategy or partner with them to develop a new one.

Planning & Process: This is an effort that will impact virtually everyone in an organization, so it is important to engender support and buy-in early on. This requires a plan that outlines the approach to designing the RPO program and creating alignment across functions.

Measurement: Achieving transformational accomplishments requires bold changes that can be measured. Starting with a baseline and integrating highly developed metrics that generate strategic insights will demonstrate results and enable a dynamic journey.

Today’s age RPO is about talent acquisition transformation with dedicated teams of sources, technology specialists, industry analysts and social media experts. The key is to harness and leverage the assets RPO can provide. However, an organization must first be prepared for that transformation.
