10 qualities to look for in a great RPO partner

A great RPO Partner:

  • Focuses on quality of hire

  • Knows how to build and communicate your employer brand

    Brings a track record of helping companies build their employer brand, with the tools and techniques to communicate your employee value proposition during the recruitment process.
  • Builds sourcing strategies and talent pools that reduce time to fill for business critical positions

    Experienced at identifying business-critical roles and building sourcing strategies and talent pools for these roles ahead of vacancies arising, enabling them to call upon top talent quickly when a role becomes available.
  • Demonstrates flexibility and scalability in the services they offer

    Able to provide several solutions for scaling the talent acquisition function up and down to minimise cost and risk as your hiring volumes vary throughout the year, as well as providing flexibility in the range of services offered.
  • Reduces your recruitment costs

    Can demonstrate a clear path to delivering significant cost savings, through implementing innovative direct sourcing and talent pooling strategies, consolidating use of third party agencies, streamlining processes and reducing reliance on jobs boards. By increasing quality of hire, they will also reduce cost of employee turnover.
  • Knows how to use technology and data insights to drive business improvements

    Able to bring market-leading technology and reporting expertise to produce comprehensive dashboard reporting and useful market intelligence to drive continuous improvement and better business decisions.
  • Makes compliance a non negotiable

    Ensures policies and processes are documented and adhered to consistently, and recruitment systems are updated with accurate information, to maximise compliance and data integrity while minimising risks.
  • Customises the solution to fit your needs

    Whether you require a high-touch, research-based approach for finding and hiring senior executives, or a fast-paced, cost-effective process for volume hiring, together we can design a solution that meets your needs.
  • Can provide additional talent management services

    Able to advise you on best practice psychometric and behavioural assessment practices and tools, the latest trends in graduate/intern recruitment and strategies for identifying, engaging and developing your high-potential talent.
  • Knows your geography

    Whether you need a RPO solution for a single country or a global solution across multiple countries, your partner should understand the nuances of that location and be able to advise you of the regulatory environment and most effective sourcing channels.
