The RPO (recruitment processing outsourcing) industry might seem to be confusing for anyone who is not familiar with these services. Since it’s an emerging industry, some RPO services and solutions are not yet standardized.
For example, RPO providers would often use different terminology to describe the same RPO services, or in some cases, RPO providers offer all or just a subset of these services. Thus, making it more challenging for a neophyte in the industry to delve into the business and gain a better understanding of the intricacies of the RPO industry.
Simply put, an RPO service provider is a form of business process outsourcing wherein an employer transfers all or just a portion of its recruitment process to an external offshore service provider. RPO providers can manage the entire hiring process from sourcing to onboarding.
A successful RPO partnership will significantly improve an organization’s time to hire, increase the quality of the candidate pool, reduce costs, and increase operational efficiencies.
