Cutting Costs and Exceeding Expectations Through RPO

Share this post:

What is your organization’s biggest annual expenditure? If your company is like most others, your largest cost is talent. And when the wrong talent is hired, the cost to find a replacement is doubled. That’s not a winning business model. So it’s understandable that when you outsource your talent acquisition program, you expect your recruitment process outsourcing (RPO) partner to:

  • Reduce costs
  • Deliver more efficient processes
  • Help grow your company

RPO is a way to fill open positions more quickly and at a lower cost. In fact, past RPO clients of IBM Talent Acquisition Optimization have achieved:

  • 35% decrease in time to fill
  • 20% decrease in cost per hire
  • 22% decrease in turnover rate

In addition to delivering these and other measurable outcomes, a well-designed RPO program supports your company’s most critical business objectives.

 

Outcome-driven RPO

Any RPO provider that is worth your partnership must begin the relationship by discovering and understanding two fundamental facts about your organization:

  • The business outcomes you want to attain
  • Your short-term and long-term strategic initiatives

With this knowledge, the RPO partner can design and deliver a recruitment strategy and hiring processes to achieve your desired outcomes.

Besides delivering improved recruiting metrics, your RPO partner supports your high-level strategies by freeing your HR and talent acquisition teams from the time- and labor-intensive activities of recruitment. Also, your internal teams don’t have to be experts on the newest digital recruiting technologies or know how to integrate disparate systems — your RPO partner can do that for you.

Instead, your teams can concentrate on the intrinsic value they bring to your company:
