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?

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.
