How can RPO improve the quality-of-hire at your business?

How can Recruitment Process Outsourcing improve the quality-of-hire at your business?

Outsourcing the recruitment of your staff can be a daunting prospect. How can you ensure that quality hires still come through the door? We explore the three main benefits of using an RPO Solution to improve the quality-of-hire in this article.

1. Insights around talent availability by location, salary and demographics

Firstly, as with everything, it’s best to act from a position of knowledge. Your RPO partner can help you benchmark your positions to understand the availability of talent in your locations, salary ranges and candidate market demographics. That way, you’ll know for sure if the talent really is in short supply or if there’s a wider issue, such as your candidate attraction methods or your employer brand.


2. Reporting and consultancy on sourcing channels from an experienced partner

Secondly, your RPO partner can help you understand the effectiveness of your sourcing channels. From job boards, to social media, to advertising, to paid-for search; you can understand which channels are worth investing in and which aren’t. Being able to measure the success of every sourcing strategy, including return on investment, is fundamental to making improvements in the quality of hire you can achieve.


3. Consultancy to unlock your employer brand’s true potential

Finally, taking it back a step, what are the root causes of your inability to consistently find, engage and retain the best talent? Do the best candidates in the market know what they’re missing out on by not being a part of your company? If they’re the very best, why would they work for you and not your competitors? An RPO partner with experience in Employer Branding Consultancy (such as Gattaca), can help you figure out your Employer Value Proposition (EVP) and deploy methods to amplify this message to your candidate communities.


Ultimately, a permanent workforce solution will give you the tools and support to sustainably improve your quality-of-hire so that your business is able to access the best talent before your competitors.
