FACT: New generation RPO providers work as an extension of your business, supporting (not replacing) internal HR functions
The misconception that engaging with a recruitment process outsourcing (RPO) provider will replace internal HR functions is a widespread concern.
The truth is that many new generation RPO providers build tailored recruitment models in strategic partnership with internal HR teams, overcoming recruitment challenges together with collaborative solutions.
In fact, the most successful RPO models require the combined efforts of internal HR and marketing teams, as well as the support of recruitment professionals in order to be highly effective.
After all, promoting and enhancing your employer brand is the best way to attract and retain top candidates, and who’s better placed to champion the benefits of working at your company than internal HR and marketing teams?
Culture fit is more often than not a primary recruitment objective for many businesses, and only by working collaboratively alongside your existing teams can RPO partners achieve that objective.
And the beauty of new generation, agile RPO is that you don’t have to outsource the entire recruitment process!
You might choose to outsource the recruitment for a particular function or project, or partner with an RPO to manage the sourcing, screening and shortlisting process in order to increase the quality of candidates and free up valuable HR time.
Partnering with an RPO provider takes laborious legwork away from your internal teams, enabling them to focus on more strategic business objectives.
