What is RPO?

RPO stands for Recruitment Process Outsourcing and is the outsourcing of a portion, or all, of a company's permanent recruitment, to a third-party provider of recruitment experts.

What are the benefits of RPO?

In a post-Covid-19 world, we believe RPO will be the chosen recruitment model for many organisations due to the three main benefits:

Cost

RPO is more cost-effective; it’s cheaper than working with agencies (due to economies of scale) and cheaper than carrying the fixed costs of an in-house Recruitment Manager or recruitment focused HR person

Time

RPO services can save your key people vital time - by undertaking some of the significantly time consuming recruitment tasks they do like organising candidates, arranging interviews, dealing with all agencies… RPO can get hires in to a business quicker – measure our performance on ‘time-to-hire’

Talent

RPO services will deliver better quality talent for their clients than those companies that work with multiple agencies - our RPO service works more closely, more consistently, and builds better relationships with clients and this has a positive impact of the quality of the talent being delivered.  We are also under contract so we're in it until it's done, even with the toughest hires

Is outsourcing recruitment the right option for your company?

Questions to consider when asking if outsourcing recruitment (RPO) would benefit you and your organisation:
  • Does your company pay too much to multiple recruitment agencies?
  • Does your company spend too much money having to replace staff?
  • Do your company's most important employees spend too much time dealing with multiple recruitment agencies, reviewing huge numbers of CVs, and interviewing inappropriate candidates?
  • Do you think your recruitment method could bring you better talent?
  • Have you paid recruitment fees for a new hire who has left shortly after starting?
If the answer might be "yes" to any of the questions to the left, and you would like a recruitment service that reduces your costs, saves you time, and delivers you the best available and interested talent – and would replace new starters who leave for free - then contact us to discuss how Macildowie RPO can help your business

Unique Service Offerings

Macildowie’s RPO has unique service offerings, including our Learning Hub system and Retention Based Pricing – services which help companies retain their best talent and are also huge cost saving tools.

There are many theories about how to calculate the cost of a bad hire, or the average cost to replace an employee but they share a common thread - it's both expensive and time consuming.  

We base our approach on ensuring quality hires because we will be contracted to take the pain of a bad one...

  • Macildowie screened the candidates thoroughly, not just for job suitability but also for business and team fit. They took the time to get know, not only what the vacancy was, but also who we were as a business, our mission, our vision and how we were looking to grow.

  • I would advise anyone recruiting to have the conversation with Macildowie first to see what’s on offer and how they do it differently.
