The 39 Benefits (RPO full list)

In a related article, I mentioned that I would share the full list of all 39 advantages to using RPO services in hiring.

The outsourced recruiting model RPO is a specialized type of staffing service with the specific goal of providing a better quality hire than they could recruit on their own.  While this is a spectacular benefit, there’s actually many more other benefits that come along with it.


It’s with this goal in mind, RPO Providers offer staffing models that offer a variety of benefits to the hiring company.  


In a previous article, I needed to think through all the different positive variables and advantages to using RPO services in hiring.  After researching EP’s history with clients, carefully walking through the various opportunities where RPO drives revenue and positive change within the company.  I ended up working things out on the whiteboard in my office (photo of actual whiteboard below).  In conclusion, I ended up coming up with 39 different advantageous components and factors benefiting the hiring company using RPO staffing services.  


As promised, the full list is included below.
