What is RPO?

Many people hear “Recruitment Process Outsourcing” and think of a staffing firm or headhunters. But what Cielo offers goes far deeper than that, letting you partner with experts to design and execute a customized talent acquisition and recruitment process that delivers exceptional business results. We work as one with your internal team to transform your approach to getting the talent you need when you need it.

RPO isn’t for quick fixes or one-off hires. We go all-in with you, embedding our talent experts within your organization, living your values and protecting and promoting your employer brand. Our high-tech meets high-touch approach pairs the industry’s most advanced, integrated technology with important moments of human interaction. You will have high-quality candidates at the speed and scale you need them, all while satisfying candidates and hiring managers.

What is RPO?

RPO Models

Each organization has unique talent challenges. Sometimes what seems like one challenge reveals itself to be multiple challenges that are holding back your ability to find and keep great people. Whatever you think your challenge is, Cielo will work with you to assess your situation, uncover the true core issues and build a solution best suited for your needs and goals.

Typically, these solutions fall into four different types of partnerships.

Enterprise RPO

Sourcing, engaging, interviewing, hiring, branding, onboarding … you name it, Enterprise RPO covers it. This full-service offering is for when you want to completely transform your talent acquisition function, partnering with us as we design and implement your customized solution. You’ll receive full accountability from us and our embedded recruitment team, who will work with you and be responsible for achieving your specific business and talent goals.

Hybrid RPO

Hybrid RPO is ideal when you want RPO service support for a specific location, business unit or critical position within your company. In this type of partnership, we complement your current recruitment processes with a dedicated team of recruiters who live and breathe your culture, mission and values while giving your HR team the flexibility it needs to focus on strategic business objectives.

Project RPO

Project RPO is an ideal solution for when you need a certain amount of hires within a very short, and very strict, timeline, and your internal team is already stretched to the limit. In this partnership, Cielo assumes responsibility over the recruitment life cycle, balancing quality and quantity to make sure your talent demands go from your biggest worry to your proudest achievement.

Build Operate Transfer

The Build Operate Transfer model is aimed at organizations that eventually want to operate internally all or part of their own talent acquisition function in house, but are seeking a partner with experience at scale to help realize the transformation of their talent acquisition strategy. This offering will bolster your internal team with experts who accelerate change by designing a new recruitment process, improving candidate experience and assessing your technology stack while also building your team’s capabilities to deliver to steady performance.

RPO Technology

Getting the most from your ATS or VMS while trying to keep up with the latest and greatest technology – artificial intelligence, machine learning, virtual reality – can seem like an impossible task. When you have Cielo in your corner, you’ll get a partner that has built unmatched expertise in recruiting technology through both experience and innovation. We designed our technology, called Cielo TalentCloud, to have three specific roles:

  • SkyRecruit: to attract and engage the best talent
  • SkyAnalytics: to analyze data to inform decision making
  • SkyLabs: to test and invent new technologies that are the future of talent acquisition

The Cielo Difference: Bridge Pre-employment Team

Delivering a meaningful, positive candidate experience extends far beyond making the offer. There are still details like reference checks, background checks, drug screens and more to attend to, and each one needs to be handled quickly and professionally to keep your new employee engaged and excited to come work for you. Cielo’s Bridge Pre-employment Team takes care of all these steps, delivering an amazing high-touch new hire experience that will leave them ready to hit the ground running on day one.
