What is RPO?
Recruitment process outsourcing (RPO) is when a company asks a trusted provider to handle all or part of its recruitment process for permanent staff.
A permanent workforce solution or RPO can be a game-changer for your talent acquisition & management, reducing time-to-hire, lowering cost-per-hire and improving quality-of-hire . Below are just some of the things you can achieve in partnership with us as your RPO provider:
Wish you had more recruitment support to help you grow but aren’t sure you currently have the time, budget or risk-appetite to hire someone?
If so, an on-demand recruiter service could be perfect. A dedicated recruiter has the networks, experience, candidate attraction tools and market knowledge to make them immediately effective. This allows you to act quickly whilst mitigating cost, risk and time.
Expecting a spike in recruitment and need to act quickly?
A Project RPO applies a light-touch management whilst ensuring all of your critical positions are filled. It can either last for a set time, or until all positions are filled, and can be ramped up into a modular or full RPO.
This model is great for start-ups who need to grow overnight, or for companies that have just won a big new contract and can’t cope with the volume in-house.
You’ve already got an in-house recruitment team but there are certain skills or processes you want a partner to deliver. Why not go for a modular RPO?
Perhaps you want to outsource the technical skills recruitment that’s causing you headaches. Or maybe you just want someone to manage your supply chain of agencies.
Ask yourself; do you love delivering that process in-house and is there real benefit in doing so?
If not, why not give it to someone who will care about it on your behalf?
Many believe a ‘full RPO’ involves handing over control. In reality, it can be the best way to take it back and get the service your business needs for talent acquisition.
Acting under your orders, an RPO partner takes responsibility for all aspects of your recruitment; seeking to continually improve the process. You can demand excellence from an RPO partner: it’s in their interest to keep evolving their service.
Plus, Gattaca can even help you bring processes back in-house at the right time for your business.
This guide offers insight to 12 key ‘pillars’ every successful talent acquisition function should focus on, with key questions to ask of your organisation at every stage. It also contains handy exercises to help you map out your talent acquisition priorities and plot your current vs future state over the short, medium and long-term.
