ManpowerGroup on the Best Practices in Recruitment Process Outsourcing

MILWAUKEE, Aug. 26, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- ManpowerGroup (NYSE: MAN), the world leader in innovative workforce solutions, today released the white paper "What You Should Look for in an RPO Provider." ManpowerGroup recommends that, in the face of growing skills shortage and talent mismatch, organizations struggling to find the right talent, outsource or transfer a portion or all of their recruitment processes to third party Recruitment Process Outsourcing (RPO) providers.

"Today, companies face the difficult task of executing their strategies in an increasingly competitive and uncertain business environment. Narrower margins and compressed business cycles have become the norm, while the challenge to fill open positions with qualified hires persists," said Kate Donovan, President of ManpowerGroup's Global Recruitment Process Outsourcing Practice. "This means that successful execution of long-term talent strategies, ones that help attract, develop and retain the right talent, becomes that much more critical for organizations who want to maintain their competitive advantage."

Forward thinking organizations look beyond traditional service level agreements, costs and processes, observes ManpowerGroup. They intentionally seek out and partner with RPO providers who have specific competencies and expertise in the world of work.

As organizations struggle with the pervasive talent mismatch, they value RPO providers who anticipate global trends, understand the forces that shape the marketplace and apply their in-depth knowledge of the industry and the economy to help their clients win. Clients recognize that RPO providers with access to the best in global and local talent and who are knowledgeable about talent flows will improve the quality of their hires and consequently increase the vitality and sustainability of their workforce.

The best RPO providers, adds ManpowerGroup, have access to the latest and most innovative recruitment technologies. They know how to access and leverage data from multiple sources to inform decision making. They can increase the speed with which the best solutions are implemented and save clients' money. Clients recognize that by choosing to work with these RPO providers, they can focus their resources on key strategic initiatives.

The demands and complexity of the recruiting environment put an added pressure on organizations to identify RPO providers who can address their most complex recruitment needs and who are willing to share in risks and rewards with their clients. The best RPO providers offer clients innovative long-term workforce solutions that continue to meet or excel their evolving workforce needs and that will ultimately help them win in the uncertain economy.
