First of all…
The Recruitment Process Outsourcing Association defines recruitment process outsourcing (RPO) as…
“a form of business process outsourcing (BPO) where an employer transfers all or part of its recruitment processes to an external service provider. An RPO provider can provide its own or may assume the company’s staff, technology, methodologies and reporting. In all cases, RPO differs greatly from providers such as staffing companies and contingent/ retained search providers in that it assumes ownership of the design and management of the recruitment process and the responsibility of results.”
To put it in laymen’s terms, your RPO partner, becomes an extension of your recruiting department and is there not only, to fill the jobs you need help on, but also to assist with designing, developing or even just refining your recruitment process.
Working with an RPO provider can be a transformational to your recruiting and business success. Their value is demonstrated in the immediate effects and (more so) in the long-term effects. This type of partnership pays it forward long-term, as opposed to just in the immediate needs (as with traditional staffing models).
The recruitment process is also not set in stone forever. There are definitely terms, the plan is always well-laid out and agreed to by both parties. However, you can scale up or down, depending on your needs and the flux of your business.
The biggest benefits to your business is the reduced cost per hire and increased efficiency in your recruiting process!
RPO companies are generally are highly specialized experts in their industry. In the same way, Empowered Partnerships are specialists in mental and behavioral health recruitment. This means they maintain vast networks of candidates at all times and most often, has access to the latest and greatest recruitment technology. Saving your company the cost of having to invest in this technology and time, effort and energy required to build up these networks.
Lastly, RPO partners are always learning and looking to develop the most efficient and creative ways of recruiting.
