We make RPO work for you
Many businesses look for RPO solutions when recruitment processes been costly and inefficient, with too much dependence on recruitment agencies to fill positions. Our robust talent recruitment methodology ensures RPO benefits an organisation in numerous ways; improving the efficiencies of the process, providing accurate reporting and developing talent management strategies to future-proof access to the best talent. All whilst delivering real cost savings. And it’s not at the expense of an organisation’s internal recruitment team.
One of the biggest ways we can save you money is time. Every minute that you spend on recruitment is a minute less spent on other areas of the business. Recruitment is an incredibly time-consuming endeavour, particularly if you’re juggling it alongside a hundred other jobs and responsibilities. There’s the initial task of writing and publishing the job advert, trawling through all the responses (CVS, covering letters, portfolios), arranging, preparing for and conducting interviews, and negotiating the final package offer. If you can’t dedicate sufficient time to the process, it will simply take longer and the position will remain unfilled. That’s one less person contributing to the development and growth of the business.
Furthermore, throughout the whole process you need to remain aware of any unconscious bias. Spotting it requires extensive training, which takes further time out of your busy schedule.
By permanently outsourcing your recruitment requirements to Omni, we are able to streamline the entire process. We will take control of the time-consuming administrative work and leave you to make the all-important hiring decisions. In addition, our services will reduce the need for you to pay high rates of commission on individual searches.
The Benefits of Recruitment Process Outsourcing
We understand the challenges businesses face when it comes to recruiting, managing and retaining the best talent. Here’s why an RPO solution can help change the way you resource for the better:
- It’s scalable. As your business changes, so does your hiring strategy. Our solution can be flexed to accommodate expansion, downsizing or hiring freezes, for no extra cost. This could be over a long period of time or on a seasonal basis.
- It’s cost effective. Cost per hire is reduced, the quality of hire is increased and the time to hire is decreased.
- It future-proofs your business. Our job is to actively engage with the best candidates and create a talent bank for future hiring.
- It creates a consistent, company wide hiring process. All departments are engaged with a simple recruitment process which provides complete visibility and transparency at all levels.
- It engages with all stakeholders. From hiring manager, to candidate, to senior management, everyone is engaged in a clear process with agreed SLA’s which save time and money for your business.
- It provides real-time reporting. We track each stage of the recruitment process across every hire.
Our reporting analytics tools provide detailed insights for prompt decision making and people strategy reviews.
- It enhances your own brand. We use your brand to promote recruitment – we essentially become part of your company and protect your employer brand by providing a seamless recruitment experience, within an agreed strategy. We want candidates to be left with an excellent impression of your company.
Reduce your reliance on agencies
Across all our services, we use our expertise to help organisations reduce their reliance on agencies and minimise the cost of their recruitment by enhancing their direct sourcing capability. Our proactive and direct candidate sourcing strategy will access better quality candidates. Unlike an agency, Omni targets both active job seekers and passive candidates within the market via the widest routes possible.
From a short-term project to a long-term strategic partnership, Omni will become embedded into your organisation, sitting behind and your brand working in partnership with your internal resourcing team to change the way you resource for the better.
One of the major benefits of this method is centralisation. All too often when departments are tasked with managing their own recruitment needs, the approach becomes disjointed and inefficient. Each department develops their own way of doing things, during both the onboarding and recruitment process, and a lack of communication means that overlaps can occur. For example, multiple advertisement purchases when a single combined one would suffice.
Furthermore, a lack of consistency can result in candidates being left with very different impressions of the company. An undefined recruitment process can have a negative impact on candidate engagement, as they are simply left confused and unclear as to where they sit within it. Choose to outsource your recruitment to Omni and we will ensure that each and every candidate knows exactly what the process is, who they will be dealing with and when they can expect certain responses. This will lead to an increase in candidate satisfaction and put them in the right frame of mind to work with you.
Long-term strategy is where we are truly able to set ourselves apart from a traditional recruitment agency. Over a greater period of time, we able to build up a deeper and more complete picture of your recruitment needs. For example, we can identify any patterns in the peaks or troughs of your employment demands and make begin to forecasts for the future. These forecasts can then be used to assign resource more efficiently.
