Recruitment Process Outsourcing

Recruitment specialists driving today’s changes to meet tomorrow’s workforce needs

You focus on your goals, we find the people to reach them

Recruitment process outsourcing, or RPO, gives you specialist hiring support when you need it. An external partner, like us, handles some or all of your hiring process—tackling the tricky task of finding the right people at the right time, without sending costs spiraling. We scale our searches depending on what your business needs right now—or will need soon. And we make your recruitment processes fairer and more inclusive.

We have decades of experience as an award-winning RPO partner to all types of industries around the world. The kind of experience that got us named Leader in RPO by Everest Group in 2020.

And, unlike recruitment process outsourcing agencies who hire and go, we’re the only provider that evaluates and benchmarks skillset and mindset for each role, including market insight, job design and sourcing specialists to hit hiring targets without compromising on candidate quality. So you find candidates that don’t just tick boxes on paper, they fit your team and culture too.

How we help you

Recruitment is a long-term investment in the people who power your business. We’ve shaped our teams and technology to quickly find quality candidates who want to work with you, making our recruitment process outsourcing (RPO) services much more cost-effective than traditional recruitment agencies. Which is why we consistently rank in the top global RPO providers for client satisfaction, even while filling over 100,000 permanent roles every year.

We can take on the whole process or provide support where you need it. We find great candidates and recommend the top talent to choose from. And we tailor our team to fit your goals—so no matter what your recruiting needs, we’re right there with you.

We find the right people, faster

Our advanced recruitment platform, sitting in the Korn Ferry Intelligence Cloud, uses insights and AI to spot the people who have both the skills to do the job and the mindset to grow and develop in your culture. So you spend less time and money finding quality candidates. And we don’t stop after the search—we’re there to settle them in for the road ahead.

We adjust our strategy to meet your goals and control costs

Hiring can look different from one year to the next. But no matter what, you’re under pressure to reduce your cost per hire. We flex to fit what you need right now, and what you need tomorrow — that’s how we’ve helped clients who rely on recruitment agencies save at least 50% on their yearly hiring spend.

We make it a better hiring experience for everyone

With a focus on hiring quality talent, we know how crucial it is to instill a sense of equity and ethics when communicating with both internal and external candidates in order to bolster a professional and attractive image during the recruitment process. We keep your candidates excited and the lines of communication open throughout the process. And we prepare you for interviews with custom candidate guides so you’re consistent in your evaluation approach and find it easier to measure criteria and consider your options.

We help you achieve your diversity, equity and inclusion goals

Diversity is infused into every part of our recruitment process. Our approach provides results in a differentiated and non-biased process experience for all candidates while keeping them engaged at every stage. We partner with you to explore your drivers for diversity and discuss which job requirements are most critical for you. We can advise on the attractiveness of your employer brand with key diverse talent pools and explore how ready your organization is to retain diverse talent in any given market.
