Guide to HR and Recruitment Outsourcing: 10 Reasons to Outsource Recruitment

Seb O’Connell, Cielo’s Executive Vice President and Managing Director for Europe, contributed a piece called, “10 Reasons to Outsource Recruitment” to the 2015 Guide to HR and Recruitment Outsourcing, a Recruitment Grapevine and HR Grapevine supplement.

Excerpts from the article:

“Partnering with an outside expert can transform your approach to talent acquisition and deliver measurable business results faster. Here are 10 challenges an RPO partner can help you overcome.”

“You need to cut costs, while continuing to acquire top talent. RPO provides a cost-effective solution while still delivering quality candidates, faster. Outsourcing partners also increase new hire and employee retention, mitigating the significant costs associated with employee turnover.”

“You need better metrics to report results and enable informed decision making. The C-suite looks to HR leaders to measure the effectiveness of their talent acquisition strategies. RPO providers work with you to identify metrics aligned with the goals of your organisation and provide quantifiable data on the impact of your recruitment efforts. ”

“Recruitment technologies enable you to identify and source job seekers, engage passive candidates, reduce time-to-hire and improve the candidate experience. The right partner provides resources and technical expertise that would otherwise come at incremental–often prohibitive–costs”

Seb’s 10 reasons are brief, compelling and provide a great summary of the benefits of working with an RPO partner. You can read the annotated print version of “10 Reasons to Outsource Recruitment,” on Page 16 of the 2015 Guide to HR and Recruitment Outsourcing.
