A Contingent RPO solution is built strategically around a business’ unique contingent talent needs. Because of this, an organisation is able to form a strong partnership with its workforce solutions provider, enabling it to attract new talent and reorganise and engage existing talent pools (such as retirees, alumni and referrals) – improving time-to-hire and intensifying cost-savings.
In addition to its cost benefits, a Contingent RPO solution also allows businesses to build on their contingent employee value proposition (EVP), employer brand and end-to-end onboarding process. This drives better quality candidates who are more closely aligned to a business’ culture, aiding long-term retention of the best contingent talent – especially vital in a competitive talent market.
How is this done? With a contingent RPO solution, you get a direct sourcing team who are solely dedicated to finding contingent talent for your business. This gives you sole access to recruitment experts singularly committed to your business’ success.
Contingent RPO doesn’t have to completely replace a business’ use of traditional recruitment agencies, however. Some companies who utilise Contingent RPO within their business opt for a hybrid model. In this scenario, Contingent RPO is employed for specific segments within a business – often for high-level, hard-to-fill roles, or when candidates are needed at scale.
