We are living through the great resignation – as more people than ever before decide to exit their current roles for a new opportunity (or a complete career shift). Add this to a growing need for skilled talent inside many organisations and things can feel tough for in-house recruitment teams. They want to extend their talent acquisition reach and access hiring expertise and tech, but their to-do list is already overflowing. Many are thinking about outsourcing part or all of their recruitment function but are worried they don’t have enough hires or that they will losing control of their talent processes.
This truth is that every business can benefit from the right RPO (recruitment process outsourcing) solution in the right place. And for small and midsize businesses, Modular RPO can be a great way to access a personalised solution quickly. This customisable and cost-effective option allows you to focus support, choosing just the talent acquisition services you need.
In this blog, we look at 7 big reasons midsize businesses can benefit from Modular RPO.
1. Tap into a flexible, on-demand solution
Modular RPO can move with you, providing personalised support for a single part of your hiring process or multiple areas and giving you the flexibility to increase your reach or scale back quickly. Whether you need help screening candidates, setting up interviews, or onboarding, Modular RPO is a great way to personalise the support you need.
2. You only need to manage a single contractual relationship
Juggling multiple suppliers, technology providers, and talent experts can be a headache. Plus, it can be tough to keep up with the latest innovations and tools without making industry watching your full-time job. The right RPO supplier will help you to reduce complexity through a single contractual relationship and keep you ahead of the latest talent trends.
3. Your talent team can focus on what really matters
Your talent acquisition team are highly skilled and it makes sense for them to focus those skills in the areas where they can add the most value. Modular RPO can reduce workloads and help you to hand off those repetitive or specialist tasks that your team doesn’t have the time or specialist knowledge to tackle, to outside experts.
4. It helps to standardise processes (within agreed services)
If you’re feeling stretched, it can translate into different experiences for different candidates and this reflects poorly on your employer brand. Ensure your candidates and new hires have a consistent, high-quality experience by embedding support from talent experts who can deliver great service every time.
5. It can support consistent messaging
A great RPO provider can spread your employer brand message and ensure your values and purpose shine (within the scope of services). One of the biggest concerns organisations have about external recruitment partners is the potential dilution of your brand and message. A great RPO provider should achieve the opposite – putting your voice, values, and goals at the centre of their approach.
6. Reduce your hiring costs
The time and resources you put into hiring can have a significant impact on your bottom line. By streamlining and standardising costs, Modular RPO can reduce unnecessary spend and add value. Plus, because you only pay for the services you really need, you can ensure that your budget goes further.
7. Win the battle for exceptional talent
Competition for talent is fierce right now, and it can be hard to keep the skilled people you need engaged throughout the hiring process. By plugging into targeted support from recruitment experts, you can boost access to hard-to-find or passive talent pools and benefit from specialist engagement expertise.
