To RPO or Not to RPO: That is a BIG question

To RPO or Not to RPO: That is a BIG question
April 12, 2012 at 2:00 - 3:00 PM ET
Mary Claire Ryan, Partner(Mary Claire Ryan)
Christine Nichlos, CEO(People Science)
By now most of the HR community is familiar with the term RPO, recruitment processing outsroucing, and as evidenced in our findings, many have varied ideas of what is or is not RPO. The title or category of RPO has been aligned with a wide spectrum of services from traditional staffing companies to background companies to the full assumption of all the recruiting of an organization. Arguably, RPO may just be the most widely used and interpreted term in recruitment today.

This program will focus on RPO as its own industry - assuming a portion of recruiting or the entire recruiting iniative of an organization.

Specific topics discussed will be:
o The variyng types of RPO
o The solutions RPO can provide: they may surprise you
o Building an internal COE that replicates RPO
o Why RPO’s work
o How RPO’s fail
o The business case for and against
o Pricing structures
o General contract terms

The program is targeted to the HR professional who wants to learn more about RPO, who is considering RPO, who is considering building an interal recruiting COE or who has an RPO and is looking to advance it or expire it.

Focusing on attendees we’ll conduct polls asking your thoughts and opinions and encourage an open interface of the many ideas and or concerns that arise when the term “outsourcing” is related to recruitment.

Examining multiple types of RPO’s and case studies, we’ll shine a light into the why’s and how’s partnerships have been formed, how they evolved, how they survive and how they expire.
