By Janine Lucas Thu, Nov 20,2014 @ AM

According O’Toole, Virginia Commonwealth University Professor of Economics, “Conditions in the labor market have improved in the first 10 months of 2014. In the first 9 months of 2014, private payroll employment improved by an average of 220,000 per month, up from 190,000 jobs per month in the same period in 2012 and 2013”. This created a more competitive environment for the labor market and allowed employees to have more confidence in jumping from job to another, creating recruiting challenges for employers.

By Allison Reilly Tue, Apr 08,2014 @ AM

In recruiting, the one thing that matters is the hire. Technology, management, resources, and experience are important and can make a difference in whether or not there is a successful hire.

Great hires with your RPO solution mean RPO success, and there are things you can do as a buyer to help guarantee that success. Many of those things actually happen before RPO service agreement is solidified, so here are few suggestions to help guarantee a successful RPO relationship.

Calculating your recruiting costs isn't as easy as you may think. It's not a matter of how much money goes into filling positions, but it's also the revenue lost because of unfilled positions.

Knowing how to make the calculations can make a huge difference in the resources that go to recruiting and how recruiting impacts the bottom line.
