Outsourcing, specifically related to outsourced recruitment, changes the way businesses attract talent. Traditionally, when a business needs new staff, it uses its internal HR or talent acquisition teams, or quite often, hiring managers contact a traditional staffing recruitment agency, to find people for the job in hand.
Outsourcing recruitment under an MSP, RPO or SoW solution is similar to recruitment, except a workforce solution provider tackles every aspect of the recruitment process, and often at scale.
Whereas a traditional recruitment company works on a role-by-role basis, a workforce solution provider over time develops talent pools that are ideally aligned with a business’ needs. And under an outsourced recruitment model, people doing the same job are always paid at the same rate, increasing pay consistency throughout a business. Similarly staffing agencies engaged by the outsourced recruitment provider are each paid the same rate, saving the client company money and increasing agency fee rate consistency throughout the business.
Moreover, an end-to-end outsourcing solution takes on other beneficial purposes. From designing the onboarding process to using data analytics to predict future hiring needs, an outsourced workforce solution enables hiring to be strategic, improves a business’ employer brand, and ultimately gets the best talent at speed whenever a business needs it.
