When you’re a talent acquisition specialist, bringing in external help is a huge decision, and there can often be a bit of a stigma attached to it. Many believe that outsourcing recruitment or asking for the help of an RPO provider creates the connotation that your existing talent function isn’t working and that you need help to do your job. However, enlisting an RPO agency to work as a recruitment partner is a strategic way of finding this support without making permanent or hard to reverse decisions. In many cases, it’s a more cost effective and intelligent way of solving talent acquisition challenges.
An RPO provider who is a good fit for your business can help you scale, build your employer brand awareness, and take your business from strength to strength. They can free up your existing HR teams or leaders and work together to scale your business successfully by acting as a strategic partner, offering guidance and advice. However, the wrong provider can lead to higher recruitment costs and a lot of pressure on your existing HR function.
So, when it comes to the RFP stage, and you have various RPO providers pitching for your partnership, how can you tell whether they’ll be a good fit for you or not? It’s very hard in the middle of a presentation to know what a company will be like to work with and whether they will be a strong addition to your team.Here are some questions we think you should ask yourself during the RFP stage and beyond. You can save yourself time, recruitment costs, and stress from an unsuccessful partnership by asking these before you decide on your RPO provider. Then, you can be confident in the knowledge that the RPO provider you have chosen will have your best interests at heart and help your scaling tech business to be surrounded by talent.
RPO is an effective solution that is perfect for businesses of all sizes. These recruitment specialists put your business at the heart of everything they do, taking the time to understand your culture and needs, enabling them to act as a trusted, strategic recruitment partner. Unlike those agencies who want to make a hire and move onto the next role for financial gain, RPO agencies care about your mission and enjoy a longstanding relationship. While they could be more costly, the results speak for themselves with higher quality candidates, reduced turnover and even faster hiring times.
