By Lamees Abourahma Wed, Dec 13,2017 @ AM


Many talent acquisition leaders are still oblivious to recruitment process outsourcing (RPO) as a strategic alternative to other recruiting options (namely, internal recruiting and staffing agencies). Understanding the challenges RPO solves, the benefits it brings to an organization, how to start with an RPO, and what to expect are some of the information talent acquisition professionals need to know and the Recruitment Process Outsourcing Association provides through its various programs including the Leadership Forum, a webinar series featuring thought leadership from the RPO and TA community.

This year, we were thrilled to have many of our members and partners speak at the Leadership Forum on a variety of TA and RPO topics. In this week’s #RPOAWeekly, we present a recap of 2017 RPOA Leadership Forum webinars. Watch these webinars and others on-demand at your convenience and get informed.
