What are the Advantages of RPO in a Post-Pandemic World?

It’s been an incredibly difficult business environment over the past 18 months and though the future is looking much brighter, it’s still uncertain. As some organisations expand rapidly, others are taking a more cautious approach; whatever your position, it’s vital that you have the right people in the right place. Recruitment Process Outsourcing (RPO) can provide flexible support that allows businesses to navigate uncertainty and access the right talent quickly and cost-effectively. This gives businesses fast access to the talent and expertise needed to build what’s next alongside the flexibility to scale their hiring up and down at pace – something that can be vital when facing unexpected obstacles.

In this blog, we take a look at some of the biggest advantages of engaging an RPO solution in a post-pandemic world of work.

RPO can help you to navigate uncertainty

You might not know what your hiring needs will look like in 6 months or a year, and this can make it hard to shape your talent acquisition (TA) team for the long term. An RPO solution can help you confidently expand your reach without the uncertainty of permanently adding to your in-house talent team. Plug in flexible TA resources for as long as you need them and move fast.

RPO can reduce costs

For many businesses, budgets are tight right now. A flexible, highly-focused talent solution can help to contain costs and add value. With a Modular RPO solution, you only pay for the specific talent acquisition services you need, while Project RPO can help you to stretch your reach during busy periods. You could even choose resourcing-on-demand (ROD) for access to an expert recruiter when you need them most.

RPO can help you to access talent safely

The pandemic has accelerated virtual hiring – video interviews and automated processes have become a vital part of the talent acquisition tool kit. But after a difficult year, it can be tough to stretch your resources to invest in new technology. The right RPO provider can ensure you have access to the latest talent tech and infrastructure to connect with potential hires safely and effectively.

RPO can help you to access new talent pools

Covid-19 has accelerated homeworking trends and removed geographical boundaries to work. This opens up huge opportunities to connect with skilled talent from all corners of the world – but without local market knowledge, where do you start? By partnering with a talent expert, you can tap into new talent pools more easily and engage with skilled people everywhere.

In a changed world, you need a solution that moves with you and that can flex to your ever-evolving goals. RPO gives your organisation the flexibility and depth of knowledge to hire people who can make a big difference in your business. At KellyOCG, we work with some of the biggest and most innovative enterprises in the world, providing recruitment solutions on their terms. Whether you need help with just part of your process (Modular RPO), help for a while (Project RPO), a crack recruiter you can call in a pinch (ROD), or support with everything (End-to-End RPO), we can help.
