It is commonly believed that outsourcing the recruitment process would not meet the expectations of organisational teams when it comes to talent planning, sourcing, and effective control and coordination between business and talent acquisition teams.

RPO - A customer centric approach to talent acquisition

An RPO service delivery model is designed to provide customer-centric flexibility and the right level of dedicated, high touch account management. The RPO partner provides resources for transparent communication and coordination with different teams balanced with efficient centers of excellence for transactional activities.

With well-articulated business requirements and clearly defined SLAs, RPO facilitates smooth service transition to stabilize the recruitment and talent management processes. Within the organisational framework, the demand for talent assumes varied proportions creating potential risk of high costs and longer time to fill open positions.

Effective planning to ensure faster time to hire

As such, line managers ensure they update recruitment teams about possible attrition scenarios and new business ramp up initiatives, creating more pressure on HR to identify and employ skilled professionals who can step in and assume critical roles. Working hand-in-hand with RPO experts can help organizations tap into talent pools that are more relevant for the identified roles, thereby reducing attrition and bringing in more economies of scale and scope.

Deeper expertise for better quality of hires

RPO partners utilise proven sourcing and recruiting techniques and have better access to specialized talent through their unique talent sourcing channels. Technological innovations, social networking forums, and other tools provide unprecedented access to active and passive talent pools that help in right-fit, quick role filling with longer retention periods. Further, facilitating seamless recruitment processes such as on-boarding, training, interviewing, and induction enables an RPO partner to improve deliverables over a period of time and provide greater business benefits to the client. Working hand-in-hand with RPO experts can help organisations tap into talent pools that are more relevant for the identified roles, reducing attrition and economise hiring.
