The Strategic Edge of RPO over Traditional Recruitment

When it comes to projects that are being outsourced, most people think around the fields of customer service, data entry processing, technical support, and tech projects. These are indeed the most common examples, but projects in Business Management shouldn’t be overlooked. Recruitment is one of the projects that any business can benefit from the most to outsource - mainly because of the unique advantages that Recruitment Process Outsourcing (RPO) has over traditional recruitment.


The bottom line will always be that the company will save on costs when outsourcing the recruitment process. We can consider this as the main reason why outsourcing to countries like the Philippines and India has become so successful. Outsourcing companies can cover everything the client needs at a much lower price compared to hiring in-house.

Data Gathering and Reporting

This is where strategic advantages come in. RPO’s are designed in a way that the process would continue even after the position has been filled. It gathers, analyzes, and reports information such as turnover rates and how long it takes to close a job position.

RPOs keep the entire recruitment process running smoothly whenever there’s a turnover or every time the company calls for new job positions to be filled.


RPO is not just about providing the right people that the clients look for. It’s a whole process model that adapts accordingly to the needs of the company. RPOs are commonly structured so that it can be scaled up and down without causing any problems in the recruitment process.

The expertise of RPO’s can go beyond what people would normally expect.
