Recruitment Process Outsourcing (RPO) is a form of business process outsourcing (BPO) where an employer outsources or transfers all or part of its recruitment activities to an external service provider.

As per the Recruitment Process Outsourcing Association, “Recruitment Process Outsourcing is when a provider acts as a company’s internal recruitment function for a portion or all of its jobs.”

As people are increasingly using social media to network and identify employment opportunities, the trend of RPOs is becoming more popular as more all sized organizations are outsourcing their recruitment process right from the entry level jobs to executive level jobs.

RPO is a segment of HR outsourcing, which consists of subcontracting the recruitment processes of an organization to a third-party vendor that has expertise in required domains. These service providers act as a company’s internal recruitment entity, which handles all or part of recruitment activities such as sourcing, screening, selection, on-boarding, and training.

An effective RPO arrangement includes a standardized recruiting process, platforms for workforce planning, applicant tracking, and workflow. It helps client firms increase their operational efficiency, concentrate on their core competencies, reduce time to market, obtain access to fresh talent and experience along with succession planning and project ramp services.
