1. Purpose and Objectives

When you are about to hire a recruitment outsourcing company, you have to really understand what your purpose is. What exactly do you need done? What processes are the most time-consuming and repetitive and manpower intensive? Before you decide to hire an recruitment outsourcing company in the Philippines, or another overseas destination, be clear on your objectives and overall goals. Define what success looks like, put together a plan, and execute.

2. Strong Management

A successful partnership with a recruitment process outsouring provider requires strong management.Good managers need to make the right decisions and ensure the business is able to exploit any opportunities open to it. At the same time, good managers protect the business by anticipating and acting against any threats to its welfare. Managers must decide on their priorities and allocate resources accordingly. They must decide what needs doing and how best to do it. A good manager should push the business and partnership with the RPO company forward, as new challenges arise, and take responsibility for their decisions.

3. Team Integration

Your in-house team must be fuly integrated with your outsourced recruiting provider (RPO). This effort will not succeed if you are not able to build a team integration between two groups. Your outsourcing provider needs to become part of your company, so to speak. Make sure that both sides, your company and the RPO provider, have the same thoughs, values, ethics, as well as the culture of your organization. The RPO must resemble your company to keep your reputation and credibility. In order to get the best integration, you have to give the outsourced employees the same training and let them know your organization more, so they will easily manage what they have to do. Your outsourcing provider should be a seamless integration with your company.

4. Continous Process; Improvement Planning

Continuous improvement, sometimes called continual improvement, is the ongoing improvement of products, services or processes through incremental and breakthrough improvements. These efforts can seek “incremental” improvement over time or “breakthrough” improvement all at once. You and your outsourcing provider must put in place a plan to ensure continuos improvement to processes across the board.

In conclusion, hiring a recruitment outsourcing provider (RPO) to help your company fill more job openings faster is a great idea, if executed properly. It all comes down to people, processes and training to ensure success.
