Basic understanding of RPO6Recruitment Process Outsourcing (RPO) refers to the process by which a company outsources part or all ofits permanent recruitment functions to a vendor. This can include job postings, sourcing, screening,interview scheduling and logistics, offer acceptance and on-boarding of staff, system compliance, and HRIS(human resources information systems) data entry.RPO is a viable option for companies that are short on internal recruiting resources, as is recently the casein many organizations that have downsized as a result of the recession. Similarly, by outsourcingrecruitment, the company can focus their internal HR staff members on other initiatives.Cost is another driving factor of RPO adoption. In many cases, RPO vendors (like Pontoon) can leverageeconomies of scale to reduce the client’s cost per hire. Plus, companies like Pontoon can utilize largecontracts with job boards and search engines that individual client companies often cannot afford.
