#RPOA Weekly: Talent Acquisition vs. Recruitment

By Lamees Abourahma Tue, Oct 17,2017 @ AM

One-half of organizations surveyed by SHRM in a 2016 report cited factors such as a low number of applicants (51%), lack of the needed work experience among candidates (50%) and competition from other employers (49%) as reasons for difficulty finding candidates for their open positions.

With challenging recruiting conditions in the current labor market (according to 68% of HR professionals), a more strategic talent acquisition approach is likely to position employers better for the talent war than tactical recruiting activities. Our #RPOA Weekly highlights the difference between strategic vs. tactical talent acquisition and some characteristics of the new talent landscape.

The Alignment Between Business Strategy And HR - And The Role of RPO in This Paradigm

By Pam Verhoff Thu, Aug 11,2016 @ AM

I often define HR as “everything people”, therefore the essence of HR has to be strategic. As HR expands beyond its traditional administrative role, that shift provides a significant impact on an organization’s value creation. To properly align HR with the business strategy, the structure must support having the senior HR leader involved in the strategic planning process. It’s then that HR leader’s responsibility to ensure the entire executive team understands that it is human capital that impacts all areas of an organization. In turn, the HR function needs to ensure the human asset is effectively aligned with the business strategy. The focus on business strategy needs to be addressed within every department of HR – Talent Acquisition, Compensation & Benefits, Performance Management, Employee Development & Employee Relations.

RPO Experts Weigh in on Social Recruiting Strategy, Challenges and Trends

By Brent G Trotter Fri, Mar 25,2016 @ AM

Social media isn’t always the first place that talent managers think of when it comes to sourcing talent, but one might argue that in the near future, it might be. As of June in 2015, there are about 83 million millennials, which represents more than one quarter of the US population. That’s a segment of the population who is well-adjusted with social media. Understanding and engaging in that landscape is becoming increasingly important, if not mandatory for recruiting and staffing professionals.

By Mark Lukens Thu, Mar 10,2016 @ AM

The fundamentals of running a business are the most important parts and often the most neglected by leaders looking to improve. So much is taken for granted that we forget to consider why we do what we do.

#RPOA Weekly: How Measurement is the Key to Recruiting Success

By Carrie Kolar Thu, Nov 26,2015 @ AM

In recruiting and hiring, a lot depends on putting your time and money where they’ll do the most good. A high return on investment is considered a success; a small return on the resources invested means that you need to rethink where you apply them. To find out how successful any program, strategy, or business function is, you need to measure the return. Measurement is the key to success, as it shows what works and what doesn’t and allows you to craft your strategies and approach to get the most out of what you put in. In this week’s #RPOA Weekly, we take a look at how measurement is the key to recruiting success.

New Trend in Recruiting: Project RPO

By Carrie Kolar Fri, Oct 16,2015 @ AM

The on-demand economy is thriving, and more on-demand businesses are popping up every day. Business like Uber and StyleBee and apps like OrderUp are changing the fabric of the economy, as businesses and consumers increasingly expect and demand to receive products and services on their own schedules. On-demand businesses have been mostly business to consumer instead of business to business, but the on-demand trend is slowly but surely penetrating the B2B markets. A recent Recruitment Process Outsourcing webinar entitled “Project RPO: Testing the Water with Project-Based RPO” explores how RPO can be adapted to an on-demand model, and how this on-demand or “project RPO” can benefit client organizations. In the webinar Ray Rika, the president and CEO of Accolo, provides his insight into the efficient and effective new trend in recruiting: Project RPO.
