An article in the directory, “RPO: The Next Generation,” features commentary from Marissa Geist, Cielo’s Managing Director – Americas. It covers how technology and increasingly advanced metrics are the wave of the future for RPO and talent acquisition partnerships.

Excerpt from the article:

Rather than first-generation strategies focusing on short-term goals, RPO programs should be looking toward long-term success. “Buyers should ensure the model they are creating with their chosen partner can support not just where the organization is, but where it wants to be,” says Marissa Geist, managing director of the Americas for Cielo. …

Geist explains that having a broad value index is important. “A reduction in cost per vacancy, which includes talent productivity and impact, drives better business outcomes and creates better accountability with business leaders. Integrating longer-term measures allows an RPO provider to get even closer to the business, which is exactly what a successful partnership needs.”
