Each recruitment initiative has different challenges and requires a unique solution. One size does not fit all. As Recruitment Process Outsourcing
is coming of age we see many varying degrees
, many different models
, suppliers, expectations and proclamations of success and failure.
With so many variables in play, perhaps a good starting point of understanding Recruitment Process Outsourcing is to look at some commonly held misconceptions:
||Actually, RPO has been proven to reduce overall recruitment costs by 15-40% on average for companies of all sizes
|The Cheaper the better
||There are varying degrees of RPO at different price points, one size does not fit all.
|Losing Control of Recruitment
||RPO actually allows for more control as well as visibility with clearly defined processes, extensive reporting and agreed upon metrics
|Won’t work for my company
||RPO has been a successful part of HR strategy for over 10 years. When both the company and the provider are committed, the outcome is always successful
|Supplier Wins and You Lose
||A well designed and implemented RPO allows for both the client and provider to drive organizational success through productivity, efficiency and cost savings
|Losing Your Recruiting Team
||In many RPOs, current client team members are transitioned to the RPO provider in order to retain organizational knowledge and productivity
|Transition will be Time Consuming
||With a properly defined analysis process and access to data, RPO solutions can be designed, implemented and operating in as little as 4 weeks
|RPO Solutions are “One Size Fits All”
||The best RPO providers offer clients the flexibility to outsource or in-source. In some cases, it makes more sense to augment a client’s current process rather than replace it
|Cures all recruitment challenges
||A 3rd generation RPO can be instrumental in finding solutions, but only while working closely with the client.
|Must be initiated through HR
||Many Recruitment Process Outsourcing partnerships are created at the business level or through finance.
|Complicated, long term contracts
||The length of terms vary depending on what your company needs. RPO can be very successful even with a short, one time need to ramp up hiring.|
