If you’re struggling right now to achieve your hiring goals—and who isn’t these days—it might make sense to work with a recruitment process outsourcing (RPO) firm like AG Global Services. What are some of the common signs that it’s time to leave this work to the professionals? How can an RPO like AG Globe Services help your business?
Common Signs You Need to Outsource Recruiting
Hiring is always a moving target. If you’re not hitting the bullseye, it’s a good sign that you need help from a professional services firm like AG Globe Services. When your hiring needs increase, how is your recruiting team keeping up? Do they rely strictly on resume submissions? If that’s the case, you may have noticed that the one key performance indicator of your recruiting team is off-kilter. We’re talking about the time between a job requisition and onboarding. How’s your time to hire these days?
Another sign you should consider an RPO is when your diversity goals are not being met. Building bridges with underrepresented groups for your organization is not a fast or easy process. For obvious reasons, diversifying your organization is a key metric internally. But almost every candidate out there today considers your efforts to diversify as a selling point. Diversifying your teams is important for brand building and attracting high-quality talent. An RPO can help you achieve all of these goals.
What about your technology? Today, RPOs use a lot of it, from computer automation and chatbot to texting and the latest applicant tracking systems. If your organization is failing to keep up with the latest tech trends in recruiting, your candidate experience is likely a poor one. That means you’ll have a more difficult time attracting top talent.
If you have a full-time recruiting team, and many organizations do not, are turnovers in these positions a problem? That’s a red flag that something is terribly wrong within your recruiting workflow. Of course, this also could harm your time to hire.
Benefits of an RPO
Many companies split the HR function by adding in their recruiting responsibilities. This means that recruiting will, in fact, always be the afterthought before other HR-type functions. Today’s intensely competitive markets require constant effort to build networks, particularly in those hard-to-fill roles in engineering, healthcare, accounting, and others that require highly specialized skills. That’s problematic for human resource teams who rarely have the kind of time they need to build relationships within highly specialized industry niches. This leaves them only with a reactive approach to filling recruiting needs. That is something that simply will not net you the best talent in most markets today.
That’s exactly where an RPO can help your business. RPO partnerships allow you to outsource network building, sourcing, and hiring to industry experts that have years in the field. Firms like AG Globe Services bring the top tech along with deeply diverse networks we’ve spent years building. Reach out to our team today to learn more about your options.
