As an HR leader, you know it is critical to locate, hire and retain highly qualified people for key positions. But have you considered that doing so from within your organization may be hurting your results?
You and your colleagues know your company better than anyone else. You are deeply involved in your industry’s daily realities. We know this also means you need to be fully engaged in leading your business – not in deploying the latest strategies, tactics and technologies of modern talent acquisition on your own. Here are three reasons you should consider finding a dedicated Recruitment Process Outsourcing (RPO) partner to help.
1. Outclass Your Competition
If you have handled recruitment internally, you are well aware of how difficult it is to implement on your own. Building a successful recruitment team and strategy takes a lot of time, training and trial and error, and there’s no guarantee of success. All of that time and effort could be spent on other essential HR projects while your RPO partner handles the talent. Skip the building or overhaul stages of creating an internal talent acquisition team and get straight to the results (while your competitors play catch-up).
With the right partner to outsource recruitment, you will benefit from a wealth of accumulated talent acquisition knowledge, innovative technology, and dedicated groups whose sole purpose is to locate and recruit hard-to-find, exceptionally talented people that are an ideal fit for your industry and company culture.
2. Streamline the Talent Acquisition Process
As you know, there is a lot more to the hiring process than an introduction and closing handshake. For instance, once a candidate has been given an offer of employment, they must complete a series of tests, background checks, reference checks and more depending on the complexity of your industry. To ensure a candidate is compliant, companies are often forced to deal with more than six outside vendors with widely varying turnaround times and accuracy requirements.
To give you an example of how this could be a more optimized experience, when clients work with Cielo, we collaborate with our trusted vendors to handle these tasks from start to true completion. Recruitment Process Outsourcing ensures that candidates do not fall through the cracks and are ready to contribute on day one. To further elevate a candidate’s experience, our support specialists are on hand at all times should the individuals have any questions or difficulties completing these steps.
The outsourcing process differs depending on the company you partner with, but the right recruitment provider will deliver a transparent, worry-free experience.
3. Save Time and Money Without Compromising Your Results
As the cost of business rises, companies of all budgets are forced to have their teams wear multiple hats just to complete everyday business tasks. But giving recruitment responsibilities to your HR generalists is unlikely to yield the best results. Outsourcing recruitment is a safer and more cost-effective solution that will help you find the right people for the right roles without overloading your team. It also relieves you of the burden of finding recruitment experts or becoming one yourself. With the help of a recruitment partner’s experience, technology and methodologies, you can find the right people for your organization quickly and efficiently while you focus on strategic HR business priorities.
