Recruitment process outsourcing (RPO) is increasingly one of the most popular recruitment solutions on the market. The right RPO solution depends on a number of factors, and as such there are several RPO recruitment models to choose from.

RPO is a form of business process outsourcing where an employer outsources or transfers all or part of its recruitment activities to an external service provider. But with many providers out there offering the service, how do you successfully select and manage a RPO solution? In this blog we examine the why’s and wherefores’ of finding the perfect result.
Recruitment process outsourcing (RPO) meaning the outsourcing of all, or part, of a company’s permanent recruitment requirements to an external service provider, can include delivery of the end-to-end recruitment process, from workforce planning through to the onboarding of a new hire. RPO could also encompass a single element of the recruitment process, such as attraction or selection, or a combination of different elements. In all cases, RPO differs greatly from providers such as staffing companies and contingent search providers as it assumes ownership of the design and management of the recruitment process and responsibility for the results.
RPO is a form of business process outsourcing (BPO). Whereas BPO involves the contracting of non-essential business tasks to a third-party provider, RPO sees an employer transfer all, or part, of its recruitment processes to an external provider. Recruitment process outsourcing involves more than simply filling positions in time of high demand. It is about improving the overall recruitment process in an organisation. RPO provides the talent to grow an organisation, while BPO allows organisations to concentrate on core functions.
The main difference between an RPO and a managed service programme (MSP) is the type of worker they supply to a company. RPO providers solely focus on finding permanent employees, while an MSP will find you the perfect temporary workers via an engaged supply chain. Another difference is the way of working. An RPO provider is an outsourced provider so will operate as an extension of your business by utilising your brand and integrating with your permanent recruitment processes.
RPO recruitment costs can vary greatly because RPO recruitment is designed to accommodate both small-scale and large-scale business needs. However, one of the advantages of recruitment process outsourcing is that as a standard cost is agreed for each successful hire, RPO is a vary cost effective solution. Indeed, working with an RPO partner significantly decreases the average cost-per-hire.
There are three basic types of RPO recruitment models. It is important to say that RPO is not a one-size-fits-all solutions, but it can be divided into on-demand RPO, function-based RPO, and full RPO.
On-demand RPO consists of a contract-based agreement with a provider which looks after an organisation’s messaging, processes, and the results they require. This solution specifies a defined number of jobs within a set period.
Function-based RPO sees a provider take a section of an organisation’s needs from them – for example, taking control of IT.
Full RPO involves an organisation’s entire recruitment function being provided by an RPO vendor.
A tailored RPO solution provides an organisation complete visibility and control over its entire recruitment process or a single stage within the process, helping to shape informed recruitment decisions. The benefits of outsourcing recruitment and selection processes include increased quality, efficiency greater visibility and control of recruitment, access to market-leading recruitment and HR expertise, improved selection, reduced costs, and a reduction in the time to hire.
Selective RPO addresses specific parts of an organisation’s internal recruitment process. With selective RPO, organisations receive best practices for those specific services, such as the screening process.
RPO can be used by organisations of all sizes and types. One of the benefits of recruitment process outsourcing is that it can be implemented for both small-scale and large-scale business needs.
