Recruitment Process Outsourcing

Recruitment is a prime HR area for outsourcing. On the one hand, it involves a great number of low value administrative activities. On the other, it is an increasingly complex function that requires specialist knowledge and expertise to capitalize on the vastly expanded source of candidates.

Unfortunately, too many businesses get caught up in the processes. Searching for suitable talent, sifting through CVs, responding to candidates, arranging interviews and checking references are all very necessary but time consuming and costly exercises.

Recruitment Process Outsourcing (RPO) is a form of business process outsourcing (BPO) where an organisation outsources or transfers all or part of its recruitment activities to an external service provider. This offering is most appropriate for start-ups or businesses going through a period of expansion or scaling up for new projects or for organisations that want specialised / technical recruitment skill.

Our RPO set up partners with our clients to provide end to end, total management and ownership of their recruitment function. Our trained professionals manage client in-house recruitment providing process specialization, efficiency and cost reduction.

Signing up for Asset One’s RPO offering will translate into the following benefits for your organisation: 

  • Improved fill rates & decreased time to hire

  • Lower costs

  • Minimised administrative effort, allowing HR and business managers to focus on business-critical issues

  • Detailed and comprehensive performance reporting

  • Centralised CV reservoir, most companies don’t have a centralised database even after years of recruitment because they lose access to candidate CV’s

  • Accessing the best available technology without having to make significant long-term investments in recruitment software

  • Assured maintenance of reporting, quality and performance standards via regular monthly feedback sessions

  • Dedicated on-site and recruitment consultants

  • Compliant recruitment processes.

Our RPO Options include:

  • Partial RPO (Source & Qualify): We source and qualify suitable candidates
  • Full RPO (Preferred): We assist with the entire recruiting process from client engagements, sourcing, qualifying, candidate submission, the management of interviews through to offer management
  • Project Based RPO: Project-Based Recruitment Process Outsourcing solutions are intended for situations in which a specific hiring need arises for a short duration. This is typically associated with scaling up for new projects.
