  • Four Reasons to Consider Outsourced Recruiting

What is RPO In Recruiting and what does RPO mean?

Outsourced recruiting, known as Recruitment Process Outsourcing (RPO), is an overall business strategy in which sourcing, recruiting, and hiring (in whole or part) is outsourced to an expert to positively impact productivity and profitability. And, as this recruiting method gains in popularity, we think it a great time to share four reasons, courtesy of Accolo, an Orion Talent Company, to utilize RPO through Orion Talent.

1. Best Fit

RPOs encourage sourcing from ALL resources to find great talent. They source candidates on their own, through employee referral programs, and the company career site to help you find the BEST FIT candidate for your open positions.

That means that an RPO is not only managing the recruiting function to find top talent from any available resource, but they are also helping you to build your employer brand.

2. Candidate Ownership

RPOs don’t “own” the candidates they present. You own your own candidates, whether the RPO sourced them directly or they came into your pipeline through a company website or employee referral.

3. Beyond Placements

RPO manages the entire recruiting function. A true RPO takes care of the people, process, technology, and strategy of recruiting. That means doing everything from writing job descriptions and candidate screening to improving hiring manager satisfaction and employee branding. RPOs view their relationships with clients as a long-term, strategic partnership with built-in accountability to ensure a consistent talent pipeline.

4. Expense

RPOs typically charge a monthly management fee to manage the entire hiring function, along with some transactional fees to fill individual positions. When all is said and done, the total cost of an RPO ends up being 60% to 75% less than what some agencies charge, plus you get the added advantage of freeing up the internal team to accomplish other tasks.

Whether it be through Enterprise, Project, or Blended RPO, you can enjoy all the benefits of RPO with Orion Talent’s RPO Solutions. We can help elevate your recruiting department while we manage the people, process, technology platform, and strategy to boost your hiring performance.
