Staffing requirements vary significantly by the industry, skill sets required, and location of deployment. Maintaining an ideal resourcing function that can meet these requirements has become difficult in the current day and age. Today’s competitive marketplace is making it hard for enterprises to attract talented individuals who have the necessary skills and experience to make a transformative contribution. To that end, enterprises are looking towards Recruitment Process Outsourcing (RPO), once thought as an “all or nothing” effort, to augment existing resources or provide focused sourcing and recruiting functions in one or more areas.
Today, RPO providers are not only offering recruiting solutions for difficult-to-find positions but are rather becoming strategic solution providers for enterprises to improve their employer branding, create a centralized talent pipeline, enhance candidate and hiring manager experience, and recruit for culture fit among other benefits. And, due to the abundance of resources and recruiting tools in the market, there exists a confusion and opacity concerning the tools that are to be utilized for definitive tasks within the HR function; for instance, an RPO provider brings to the table clarity and experience that maximizes enterprise’s investments and helps expand their recruiting toolset. Moreover, it gives enterprises access to some of the best people in the industry. Since most HR professionals are generalists and hire people for all different kinds of roles, from receptionists to senior-level executives, it becomes tricky for them to judge a candidate for specialized roles and responsibilities.
Moreover, with these time-consuming operations passed onto an RPO provider, enterprises get more time to focus on other aspects of the business. However, the market is filled with hundreds of RPO providers claiming to be the best, while enterprises remain unaware of the most suitable avenues for their business infrastructure. To help them choose the best among the best, a panel of prominent CEOs, CIOs, CHROs, analysts, along with the HR Tech Outlook’s editorial board, has reviewed scores of RPO providers and picked out a list of premium choices. The panel has measured the vendors’ capability to build solutions and strategize to enhance today’s recruitment process for the benefit of enterprises.
