Recruitment Process Outsourcing (RPO): an Overview

Recruitment process outsourcing (RPO) has become a new trend in the field of human resource hiring and management. Owing to a wide range of benefits, enterprises of all sizes and sectors are choosing remote talent acquisition recruiters for capitalizing on the potential of an RPO model. According to the Grand View Research forecast, the global market of RPO is expected to grow at a whopping growth of about 18.5% (CAGR) between 2020 and 2027 to reach $20.77 billion by 2027 from just $6.32 billion in 2020. The role of virtual recruiters has become very pivotal in the exponential growth of this market across the globe due to its flexibility, scalability, quality, and cost efficiency.

Recruitment process outsourcing is a type of business process outsourcing (BPO) in which the entire way of hiring and managing human resources is handled by a local or remote outsourcing hiring company. The remote talent sourcer company can either take control of the entire existing staff, methodology, reporting, and technology on certain agreed conditions or provide its own tech talent branded under the name of the client company. In the past few years, the popularity of remote recruiters based on the RPO model has increased significantly not only in large organizations but also in small and medium-sized enterprises. The startups are also capitalizing on the potential of recruitment outsourcing to their benefit extensively.

Top Benefits of RPO Recruitment Model

Cost Efficiency

One of the most important benefits of offshore recruitment process outsourcing is cost efficiency. The remote recruitment of IT professionals in Eastern Europe saves substantial costs in the entire process.

Greater Quality

Recruitment outsourcing offers high-quality solutions because of the domain specialization of the remote recruiter agency in HR management. The experience and expertise of RPO specialist companies in all stages of recruiting and onboarding processes improve the quality significantly.

Faster Hiring

The employment speed through specialized RPO providers is much faster than the traditional form of hiring and onboarding. Thus, it offers faster product launches and continual improvements.

The reporting, analytics, career development, and other work are fully managed under flexible and customized terms and conditions.

Efficient Scalability

The RPO model is very flexible and scalable due to numerous factors such as faster recruiting, access to large pools of tech talent, dedicated candidate databases, and others. A professional staffing firm can expand existing teams, build new teams, and enhance project resources by using this model fast and efficiently.
