Recruitment Process Outsourcing, as the name suggests, is the outsourcing of the permanent recruitment responsibilities of an organisation to a third party.
The recruitment of talent is at the heart of the HR function of any organisation, but the option of diverging its responsibility to a third party can be taken for a number of different reasons.
Morgan McKinley Managed Services (M3S), conducted research on this topic to identify why companies opt for RPO, and what benefits incurred from this decision. For this study a number of clients from the IT, BPO, Financial Services and Pharmaceutical sectors were surveyed who had a range of RPO tenure (<1-10 years) experience. M3S conducted face to face surveys with the heads of HR and TA.
