2013 and the Growth of RPO
In a global survey of Chief Human Resource Officers completed by IBM in 2010, leaders specified that 50% planned on employing contingent labor to fulfill labor models. 53% of leaders stated they would hire more part time labor and 56% would seek to boost outsourcing options to the firm. As the market continues to grow more global and interconnected, this talent landscape will more than likely be the norm as firms work to remain as lean and agile as possible.
What will be the focus of RPOs to drive differentiation in the market and innovate? RPOs will need to bring qualified talent to the firm, but also focus on the same issue areas as the rest of the market like how to utilize social media to improve engagement and develop their own online talent communities. There are a variety of solutions available in the market, and firms will need to do the research to see which solution will best fit their particular immediate needs and ideally continue to serve the firm’s strategic needs 3-5 years out.
