How Recruitment Process Outsourcing (RPO) Can Improve Your Organization’s Recruiting Process

By George P. Linke, Jr., Psy.D.

Recruitment Process Outsourcing (RPO) is a recruiting solution in which an organization delegates all or part of the ongoing recruiting process to an external provider.

Many companies and organizations attempt to handle their staffing needs in-house, but frequently become overwhelmed by greater than normal workloads for a variety of reasons, including new programs or start-ups; seasonal fluctuations; company growth; or higher than expected turnover.

Linke Resources’ outsourced recruitment solutions can supplement your organization’s current resources and provide the help your organization needs, when it needs it. Linke Resources can design a solution that will allow you to focus on your core business while placing your staffing needs in the hands of experienced recruitment specialists.
