What is recruitment outsourcing?
Recruitment outsourcing means using the services of specialist external recruitment providers or consultants to facilitate the recruitment process. The search for a suitable RO provider can be confusing because suppliers come from various backgrounds and bring different skills. Some firms were born out of executive search companies while others are recruiters who have relabeled their staffing business as RO so they can offer a fully managed service. There are also software companies that have developed online recruitment tools and are moving into the service sector.
