For those of you that aren’t in the know, Recruitment Process Outsourcing (RPO) is a form of business process outsourcing where an employer transfers all or part of its recruitment processes to an external service provider.
Moving to an RPO model of recruiting can be intimidating for most companies. The idea of completely handing over the recruiting responsibilities to another team outside of the organization scares executives even more than being locked in a room with a bunch of millennials.
How do I trust these new recruiters? How will they understand our culture? Another company can never do it as well as we do.
These are concerns that our Kinetix team hears over and over again – but we still continue to work successfully with our unique variety of clients and deliver better talent results than they ever could’ve imagined. These are a few of the reasons why RPO actually works better for so many growing companies:
Flexibility is the name of the game
Every business has its ups and downs, and there is nothing worse than having to let go of good people – but with RPO, you can keep the best talent on your own team. RPO allows you to vary the number of recruiters working on your jobs at any given moment. So maybe you only need one or two recruiters to fill your open jobs…or, you have a huge project coming up, and you need more people than it took to build the pyramids.
With the RPO model, you can supercharge your recruiting team or thin it out overnight based on your needs.
Time is money
Imagine how long it would take to find, interview and hire 30 recruiters to handle your growing hiring needs. Are you picturing months or even years? The faster you have an A-team in place, the better – and with one phone call, you can have 30 top-notch recruiters at your fingertips. There really is no faster way to fill jobs with the right talent for your organization.
Recruiters are commission-based which means if we don’t fill your positions we don’t get paid. We aren’t sitting back collecting a salary and avoiding your hiring managers’ phone calls (not that any of your recruiters would ever do that). We have extreme motivation to provide your managers with the best possible customer service and fill your positions as quickly as possible. Think of it this way – when you win, we win (don’t worry, there’s room for all of us in the winner’s circle).
We only hire the BEST recruiters, not just the ones in your local market
You know the great thing about the digital revolution? You can all use the communication tools you are so fond of just about anywhere. This gives us the power to hire the best recruiters across the country to work on your positions… and we do not take that responsibility lightly.
Whether our team members are remote or at the HQ, recruiters like us are still able to give you what you need to keep moving forward. That’s right, we just opened up the talent pool so that we can score the best of the best for us and for you.
