​How Does Recruitment Process Outsourcing (RPO) Work?

We are seeing that Recruitment Process Outsourcing (RPO) has risen in popularity in Malaysia. To help you understand this recruiting solution, we wanted to share a few thoughts.

RPO is one of Malaysia's fastest-growing service models due to its ability to manage high volumes of recruitment. With a more customized approach to hiring, sourcing, and screening, executive positions can be filled more easily and efficiently.

What is RPO?

RPO is the process of permanently outsourcing your hiring needs to an external company. It enables employers to outsource part or all of their internal recruitment operations to an RPO provider and they offer you with the requisite skillsets, technology, and process methodologies.

How does it work?

Sourcing – Experienced RPO firms have access to vast candidate databases that they have accumulated over time. Moreover, they understand how to leverage the power of social media by discovering and learning about candidates you are less likely to face.

In-depth screening – RPO providers will carefully screen each applicant they bring, making sure to cover any industry-specific specifications. An agency will determine if the applicant is a good match for the company's culture, and whether they uphold your ethics and principles, at this stage of the hiring process.

Hiring – Following that, an RPO provider will begin scheduling and facilitating interviews. They will be able to support you with any pay or benefit package negotiations once you've made your final call.

Besides, as a long-term partner, an RPO provider is able to provide continuous evaluation of the hiring process. This is likely to include the duration to hire, cost to hire and the retention rates. 

How does RPO differ from conventional recruiting?

RPO differs from traditional recruitment due to the nature of the relationship between the provider and the client company. A typical staffing firm will collaborate with you to fill one or two open vacancies.

An RPO provider, on the other hand, gets more involved and works with you over time, knowing all there is to understand about your business and what a candidate needs to fit in. So, RPO:

  • Optimizes your recruitment process

  • Streamlines your operations

  • Focuses on long-term business strategy

  • Re-build talent pipelines with high-quality talent in a rapid, cost-efficient way while receiving a guaranteed 100% project fulfilment.

Why should you consider engaging with a RPO provider?

Today's hiring environment is very challenging. You must negotiate a tight employment market, become competent in a set of related technologies, and handle and nurture applicants and hiring managers in order to efficiently attract top talent.
