Recruitment Process Outsourcing (RPO)

In a tight labor market, where hiring practices have matured considerably with the advent of AI, automation, and mobile-first approaches, many companies tap into external partners to bolster their talent acquisition efforts. A “Recruitment process outsourcing” (RPO) partner is an organization that supports the hiring of employees for a company. RPOs typically work with client organizations in a customized way, supporting the hiring of a portion of the workforce—for example, hourly workers or IT talent—using the newest technologies and efficient processes. Benefits of partnering with an RPO can include cost savings, access to wider pools of talent, increased workforce diversity, and regulatory compliance in global jurisdictions.
