The Recruitment Process Outsourcing Association defines recruitment process outsourcing (RPO) as a form of business process outsourcing (BPO) where an employer transfers all or part of its recruitment processes to an external service provider. An RPO provider can provide its own or may assume the company’s staff, technology, methodologies and reporting. In all cases, RPO differs greatly from providers such as staffing companies and contingent/ retained search providers in that it assumes ownership of the design and management of the recruitment process and the responsibility of results.
The Recruitment Process Outsourcing Association is the only professional association serving the global RPO community. Our members are talent acquisition professionals passionate about the impact recruitment process outsourcing has on individuals' satisfaction and organizations' business success.
We are "THE PLACE TO GO FOR RPO™."
