  • E-BOOK: Impact Areas of Recruitment Process Outsourcing

What is RPO? What can it do for your business? When does it make sense to engage an RPO provider? These are excellent questions to ask when exploring how recruitment process outsourcing works.

Recruitment Process Outsourcing (RPO) is when a business outsources all or parts of its hiring processes to a recruitment firm, whether in targeted support or an end-to-end solution. The demand for RPO is skyrocketing with an expected compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 18.5% from 2020 to 2027. And the reason behind this is simple.

RPO is an effective business strategy that helps businesses overcome time, productivity, and profitability obstacles. It not only lowers costs, but it creates flexibility, scalability, seamless compliance, and global reach.

Consistency is key with RPO, and it is this consistency through documented practices that give companies the edge they need to recruit top talent. This is not to say RPO is not customized, though. It is! No matter how you engage with RPO, you will find there are six consistent areas of your business that RPO will impact.
