Many things need to be taken into consideration when assessing recruitment for a company to help bolster the firm with RPO assistance. One of the first things to register is whether the budget is realistic or not. It may be fine to recognize a specific salary amount that one could offer a recruit but it is also essential to look into the complete picture. The expenditure in terms of the total man-hours and trainee support must be considered when taking on a new hire. Many leaders often forget about the time and resultant expenditure arising from others in the organization during their initial training session and the impact of this initial phase on the forthcoming projects and work schedules. Taking these as important economic factors and considerations will help prepare the organization with a realistic budgetary requirement.
Another prime factor is to narrow down on the potential candidate focus. This is so because not everyone can be hired for the position. Therefore, it is the organizational responsibility to be as precise as possible before approaching the RPO provider to communicate the needs and requirements. Being clear with the set of tasks or projects that are lagging behind is a good way to proceed. In addition ensuring whether the existing employees’ requirement of any support or assistance is beneficial in the long run. Will the organization require mandatory training and grooming of new employees or indulge in train-as-you-go programs for time sourcing. These are some of the basic considerations that need to be thought upon. A professional RPO provider will embark on a similar assessment process. However having a detailed information and clarity before meeting up with the potential RPO provider will enable to optimize time and costs efficiently as your requirements will be easier to assess, match, and enable a better decision-making process
