a man looking at business headshots in front of a mapWhen it comes to attracting and hiring new talent for open positions, the process can be time-consuming and costly. It requires keeping up with new recruiting technology and social media, developing relationships with successful candidates, asking the right questions, conducting background checks – and that’s just the start! Maybe it’s time to consider Recruitment Process Outsourcing (RPO) to help streamline and simplify your hiring practices. You may have heard of RPO, but what exactly is the difference between RPO and traditional recruiting? The biggest difference it that RPO doesn’t end after filling a position. An RPO partner works with an organization’s recruiting process as a whole and looks at turnover rates, technology, how much time it takes to fill a position and much more.

Contemporaries is not just a professional staffing firm, but we can work with you as an RPO partner, determining your specific hiring needs and objectives and helping you build a stronger business.

Here are a few reasons to consider RPO for your company:

  • Help With Rapid Growth: Seasonal recruiting or periods of rapid growth can put a lot of strain on existing employees. An RPO partner is ready to handle periods of growth and can have a proactive plan in place for seasonal shifts or projected growth patterns.
  • Reduced Costs: The cost to hire new employees is expensive, from advertising positions to background screenings. An RPO partner can scale up and scale down recruitment activity to match your fluctuating needs.
  • Increased Focus On Your Core Business: When the recruiting process is outsourced to specialists, it enables you to find the talent you need without distracting you and your staff from your day-to-day activities
  • Improved Turnover Rates: High employee turnover costs your business money in so many ways. When recruiting is outsourced, it leads to highly qualified candidates who are compatible with your company’s needs and culture. And they’re more likely to stay in the position!

As the economy and business climate have changed, so has the challenge of recruiting and hiring the right candidates. Whether you’re trying to save money, reduce turnover or deal with seasonal spikes in employment, there are a multitude of reasons why working with an RPO partner makes sense.
