Some of the observations enlisted in our last article gave us a glimpse of the distinctions marked by the transformation of the RPO industry. Such as:
- Medium And Small Sized Industries Approaching RPO. These small to mid size companies may drive to the next economic run up. When dealing with such firms it is essential to sharpen up gaming skills, as they could be tough buyers well prepared with questions that blow one’s mind and a keen eye on the project. They invest wisely and expect ROI regularly.
- Generic RPO to the Left While Precision RPO Takes Right. There are always special allocations for large-scale enterprise programs there have always been especially for large-scale process centric RPO’s. As far as the rest of the industry is concerned and even so for certain specific mission critical areas, a higher level of precision is required. Specialized firms concerning RPO are emerging as stronger players in offering niche or intensely technical RPO hiring requirements. As such when positions are hard to fill up and talent is limited these key players can be relied upon to proffer superior services to the Big box RPO providers.
- Sophisticated Direct Sourcing Direct sourcing has turned out to be critical again, although a lot has changed over the decade. Technology is on the rise yet talent is hard to find as technology driven firms are in a tight spot locating the right skills. Aggressive outbound direct sourcing is essential, with actual human contacts and helping them explore new opportunities again.
- Recruiters Rise Again Times are about to change as RPO providers will work towards adjusting their employee satisfaction programs. Training will gain emphasis. The need would be to create an environment that recruiters’ want to work in.
- Client Centric Services- The Ultimate Motto. More than anything else now, RPO providers require learning from the faults of the past such as examples of unserved clients. RPO has little damage control to follow. Service levels to consumers have often suffered so buyers need to be forgiven if the vetting process gets a tad bit tougher.
