When talking about RPO, it is often mentioned that there are ‘different types’ of RPO. A range of RPO organisations distinguish different types, often leading to confusion. Followed by the question what RPO solution actually suits the needs and requirements of your organisation. Basically, RPO provides a simplification of your recruitment and it’s process. A dedicated RPO partner does not offer ‘bite- sized’ packages from an existing scheme that will be implemented into your organisation, but a custom-fit solution that suits your company’s recruitment needs.
What is important ?
You do not need to predetermine a specific form of RPO, except the duration. Are you looking for a long term solution or a temporary solution? It is important that you can identify the issues/problems you are experiencing in order for your RPO partner to provide you with custom-fit solutions. Are you experiencing issues in your recruitment process and are you perhaps looking for a more efficient process? Do you want to increase the credibility with internal and external stakeholders? Are you looking to reduce your recruitment costs or make these variable? Are you looking to set up your Employer Branding strategy? Do you want to build talent pipelines in order to speed up the time-to-hire? Or perhaps you are looking for a partner to unburden your HR team by providing you with committed recruitment professionals who work on-site, totally client branded?
There are several solutions. Together with your RPO partner you will determine what steps can be taken, ensuring that all goals are met and taken care of from start to finish. Whether you are looking to determine your Employer Brand, building a career site, setting up your Social Media and your Employer Branding strategy, optimising internal processes and communication or payroll. All solutions are scalable and custom-fit. As an organisation you decided what you would like to ‘outsource’ to your selected RPO partner.
So, how can you tell with kind of RPO suits your organisation?
You basically cannot. The possibilities are endless and the partnership you agree upon with your RPO partner is always based on your recruitment needs, goals and requirements. My advice; go and talk to your selected RPO partner, discuss the problems you encounter. They should be able to establish a decided recruitment plan, in order to take your recruitment to the next level. This is the power of RPO: custom-fit, expertise, flexibility, scalability specifically suited to your organisation.
