Global RPO Leaders Talk Talent in Latin America

By Staff Writer 8/6/20 5:25 AM

The challenge to attract and engage high-quality talent is especially acute in Latin America (LATAM). Cultural differences, disparate legal systems, and shifting politics play a significant role in recruiting and hiring practices. These challenges have been magnified by the COVID-19 pandemic, which has had a substantial impact on the region.

In June, the Recruitment Process Outsourcing Association (RPOA) launched a new initiative for global RPO leaders who operate in LATAM. The forum’s designed to bring RPO peers together and provide them a platform to connect and share experiences and perspectives on current talent issues.

We recently hosted the group’s first virtual event; a panel made up of experienced LATAM RPO leaders. Topics ranged from how hiring has changed during the pandemic to how organizations deal with inter-country issues. The exclusive forum was moderated by Cynthia Cohen, an RPO veteran and Founder & Managing Director at Mynt Consultants.

Operating in a World of Uncertainty: How RPOs Fare During a Recession

By Guest 4/13/20 10:55 AM

When we published our first take on this in mid-April, the landscape was already looking challenging, but some of the economic indicators that we were watching then have continued to shift over the last month. This piece has been updated with new information available as of mid-May.

A world of uncertainty. 

This is the reality for many employers today. The landscape changes daily, and of all of the legislative movement and other pandemic responses, one of the biggest challenges is the sheer uncertainty at how long it will last and what the economy will look like on the other side. The RPO provider landscape is not immune to this economic uncertainty.

Aberdeen's Zach Chertok shares his reaction to the coronavirus

By Guest 3/19/20 10:28 AM
Among all the disruptors that anyone might have predicted for 2020 (e.g., presidential campaign, trade tariffs, etc.), no one would have predicted a global pandemic like the coronavirus we're currently experiencing. And while employers have been priding themselves with driving higher employee engagements in the workplace, we're finding ourselves having to experience "social distancing" and working remotely.
