RPO providers manage clients’ entire recruitment cycle, operating as a seamless partner. The focus is on building a strategic recruitment program that attracts, recruits and retains high-quality, full-time, permanent employees. Staffing agencies, which operate on a reactive recruitment model, work on a requisition-to-requisition basis. Also, they are often hiring temporary or temp-to-perm employees. RPO providers assume the responsibility of recruitment results during the partnership, which are held to service level agreement (SLA) and key performance indicator (KPI) standards.
