Pushing Through the Pandemic with Recruitment Process Outsourcing (RPO)

By Suzie Mitchell, Vice President of Client Delivery

At the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, the workforce solutions industry – like other business sectors around the world – took a substantial beating. Progress was slowed and growth had frozen as companies were forced to make difficult decisions to atone for the financial hurdles that were placed in their path. While several divisions of the workforce solutions world were hindered by the coronavirus outbreak, no sector was more impacted than recruitment process outsourcing (RPO).

But despite several RPO programs stalling in March and April of this past year, the future looks bright for recruitment process outsourcing initiatives across the country. As existing RPO business has expanded and new RPO clients are coming into the fold, it may be time for your organization to consider this solution to bolster your workforce.

Here are some of the many reasons why your business could benefit from a recruitment process outsourcing program:

RPO is scalable

Are you seeking a solution that will provide your organization with much-needed flexibility to scale up and down with ease? Then look no further than recruitment process outsourcing! As hiring needs will continue to fluctuate in the months ahead, organizations will seek to maintain workforces that can be flexed with ease. Whether you’re looking to quickly bolster your team with added resources or scale down your staff due to lessening demand, Broadleaf’s RPO can help you to adjust the size of your workforce to optimally align with your overall needs.

RPO is smart

A well-designed RPO can help your organization to significantly expand its reach and attract even the most hard-to-reach candidates. By utilizing recruitment technologies like applicant tracking systems (ATS), RPO providers can accelerate the hiring process altogether. Our team of tech-savvy recruitment professionals – paired with our offshore sourcing unit – will help you to connect with high-quality candidates – anytime, anywhere.

RPO is cost-effective

If your organization lacks the time, resources, or financial means necessary to deploy an effective recruiting plan, aligning your internal talent acquisition team with an RPO program may be the right fit. At Broadleaf, our recruitment experts will serve as an extension of your company’s brand to help you find the right talent at the right time. Through the utilization of our flexible RPO solution, we’ll help to offset many of the financial and administrative burdens that accompany the quest to discover top talent – saving you time and money in the process.

RPO is customized

Prior to the deployment of our flexible RPO solution, Broadleaf’s key stakeholders will gain an intimate understanding of your organization’s needs. We’ll study your mission, vision, and company culture to determine the types of candidates that best align with your defining values. Our RPO program is far from “cookie-cutter” – we’ll design and tailor our workforce strategies to drive cost savings and deliver value to your business.
