In the past, businesses were utilizing Recruitment Processes Outsourced (RPO) providers to help them rapidly scale their organizations. Over time, RPOs started to create more frustrations than productivity, leaving companies worse off than they were before they implemented an RPO.

We set out to build a solution that will reimagine how the RPO industry is structured and conducted. And this approach is called Managed RPO Solutions (MRS).

Below I have provided a detailed breakdown of the true differences between an RPO service and a Managed RPO Solution.

  1. Completely Customized Solution
    An RPO provides standard, cookie-cutter talent acquisition solutions. While this business model may be beneficial for the RPO provider, it doesn’t really help their clients achieve their goals. With MRS, we take the time to learn about your specific business’s challenges and goals. We then take that information and curate a fully customized talent acquisition solution that will enable your team to meet your hiring goals.
  2. 100% Flexible
    Unlike RPOs, we don’t lock our customers into a 1-year, 3-year, or 5-year contract. Our Managed RPO Solutions are completely flexible and can be turned ‘on or off’ whenever our clients feel that they may or may not need the extra support.
  3. Consultative Approach
    At the end of the day, our main goal is to make your internal talent acquisition team better than they were when we first came in. RPOs take the approach of selling a person to get a seat filled. With MRS, we take a process approach, where we can train and implement our proven methodologies – S4 Recruiting Methodology and the Recruiter Capability Model Process – to ensure that your team will eventually be up and running successfully all in-house.
  1. Managed
    RPO providers will provide a business with the right amount of manpower, but they will leave it up to their clients to train and manage their outsourced recruiters. With MRS, our recruiting consultants are completely trained, guided, and managed by our team of leaders. This approach ensures that our clients never have to worry about “what their recruiters are doing.”

Overall, Managed RPO Solutions provides a variety of key benefits over RPOs – flexibility, fully customized, consultative approach, and management by our team of leadership.
