RPO stands for recruitment process outsourcing. This is a form of business process outsourcing. Where an employer transfers or outsources the whole or part of their recruitment activities to an external service provider. In detail RPO needs to process when a business recruitment provider acts as a company’s internal recruitment function for any portion of a job or its entire job.
These providers do manage the entire recruiting/hiring process from those job profiles and looking through them on-board in the intention of new hiring, which also has including staffs, methods, reporting and even technology. Well-equipped and well-established providers who have keen knowledge in managing the RPO will intend in improving a company’s time to hire new staffs, and also increase the quality of the candidate and hence also providing internal factors like reducing the cost and improving government compliance.
On the other side of recruitment, occasional support recruitment is another type of RPO that makes the process through temporary, retained, contingency and executive search services which makes it more analogous to out-sourcing. This type of recruitment process is different and not the same as RPO recruitment as these service providers are a source for some particular type of recruitment activity. There has been a basic distinction between RPO and out-sourcing, this will help us in understanding in detail about RPO.
Out-sourcing is all about just being a part of the process and helps in developing their business. RPO is an internal service provider that works inside the business in recruiting staffs. Ownership of the business and responsibility towards the process is said to be the key that determines whether the service provides give the business an out-sourcing or RPO. This is why RPO makes such great sense for businesses and also helps in gaining knowledge about recruitment which makes the business stand out from the crowd.
