Why is recruitment outsourcing one of the most in-demand services in today’s IT recruitment market? What is RPO, and how does it work? What are its benefits? Is the RPO model better than the typical fees charged by recruitment agencies in Poland?
In this article, we answer all these questions and more!
Recruitment process outsourcing, also known as RPO, is defined as transferring some or all recruitment processes to an external provider, such as a recruitment agency. You pay a fixed monthly fee, and the agency provides you with a dedicated recruiter who assumes responsibility for all recruitment processes in a given project. Depending on the specifics of the project, you and the agency decide on the details of the RPO service, such as the scope of the recruiter’s responsibilities and recruitment processes.
The market situation and potential problems
But why would you need an external recruiter (RPO), if you can theoretically hire a full-time one? The answer to this question is far from simple. First of all, the current market situation makes it difficult to recruit not only programmers but also IT recruiters. Demand for tech talent is huge, and it is expected to grow. This means that you also need more recruiters in your HR team. But you need to recruit them first, and this process alone can be costly and time-consuming.
Additionally, if you hire junior recruiters, you may not have enough resources to train them. In other words, they will need more time to reach full productivity. In specialized recruitment agencies, such as Humeo, such processes are well-organized and clearly defined. Consequently, even junior recruiters can quickly take over responsibility for all recruitment processes, including very specialized ones. In this sense, the agency also trains recruiters, preparing them in a practical way to join the labor market. All this means that the cost of hiring a recruitment agency in Poland will be lower than the total cost of recruiting and training in-house recruiters.
By definition, RPO is an excellent alternative to hiring in-house recruiters. Recruitment outsourcing naturally addresses a range of problems and needs you may have. Here are some examples:
Outsourcing recruitment is not just about meeting your basic recruitment needs. By choosing Humeo’s RPO service, you also get the following benefits (based on the agreed scope of the service):
