By Lamees Abourahma Tue, Oct 11,2016 @ AM

A year ago, Welch’s Foods Inc., a Concord, Massachusetts consumer goods company, and About Talent, a Denver based RPO service provider, engaged in a recruitment process outsourcing (RPO) implementation which they discussed in an informative Leadership Forum webinar, "RPO implementation: Laying the ground work for success."  In this week's RPOA Weekly, we take a look back at key takeaways from this case study of an RPO implementation. 

On October 27th, Ryan Baca, Vice President of About Talent, returns back to facilitate a discussion with a panel of human resource practitioners (including Welch's) who are in or have been in one or several phases of an RPO engagement, including selecting, implementing, recently launched, or in a continuous improvement phase. These customers will share their experiences and methods that contribute to developing a productive relationship with an RPO provider. Register for webinar.
