How RPO Differs from BPO?

Few outsourcing examples include:

  1. Help Desk Support
  2. IT Infrastructure Support
  3. IT Applications Development
  4. IT Applications Development
  5. Claims Processing

RPO Models

Handling the 360 recruitment cycle can be effectively applied for a single market, region, country, or worldwide. Similarly, an RPO solution can focus to serve for a specific business division, role biased industry or can encompass full-cycle recruitment across the enterprise. Unlike an end-to-end RPO, a Project RPO solution hires expert talent acquisition professionals to quickly fill a specific need within an assigned time frame, as recruitment back-logs, launching a new sales team, meeting an unexpected hiring demand, or talent pooling and sourcing. Our On-demand Recruiter solution is similar to Project RPO but this process involves one or two outsourced recruiters work with your expert talent acquisition team for a set project or time frame. Lastly, you may also leverage an outsourced provider to build your contingent workforce, ensuring you have access to a high-quality talent pool whenever needed.
