What does a great RPO partnership look like?
An effective RPO partnership must have mutual investment and value. “RPO is all about mutual investment. The provider and client have to share a common objective, and both have some exposure related to achieving the desired end result,” states Greg Gary, Senior Director Business Development at Broadleaf. When RPOs providers can establish trust with their internal organization counterparts, they can proactively identify any recruiting challenges and make recommendations to increase efficiency.
