Talent Solutions Toronto / RPO

Recruitment Process Outsourcing or RPO services as it’s called, is what happens when a company transfers a part of – or the whole of its recruitment process to an external service provider like Bumsa, hence the name. One of the main reasons for companies to hire RPO providers is that they can act as an extension of a company’s HR or talent acquisitions team. They can be on-site with the client and provide a scaled-up, holistic recruitment solution when push comes to shove. RPO providers do this by delivering the necessary manpower, technology, methodology and whatever else the client may need, to get the job done.


Difference Between RPO Recruitment and Traditional Staffing

While traditional recruitment firms still have a market so to speak, their main job is to source and place candidates in required roles. This is a stark contrast to what RPO recruitment does for clients, where they essentially take ownership of the entire execution of the recruitment process from start to finish.

This can often include services such as:

  • Talent engagement
  • Candidate management
  • Engaging the hiring manager
  • Recruitment analytics
  • Workforce planning
  • Pre-employment screening
  • Strategic sourcing
  • Compliance checks and risk management
  • Brand management
  • Vendor sourcing
  • Supply chain management

Three Basic Types of RPO Models

One of the things that makes RPO such a great solution is the fact that it is not a one-size-fits-all solution. There exist three different engagement models within the recruitment industry and these are:

On-Demand RPO

This is a contract-based engagement with a qualified provider that describes what the company needs, the messaging they are aiming for, the processes they have in place and their end goal. Each contract differs in the number of roles that need to be filled within a certain period.

Function-Based RPO

In this model, the RPO provider takes a portion of the company’s recruiting needs off their plate. For example, the recruitment for the IT Department or Digital Marketing Department can be taken care of in full.



Full - RPO

This is when the RPO provider takes care of a company’s entire internal recruiting function including providing them with access to the full range of services that the RPO agency has.

Quality Hires

Reduced Time to Hire

RPO agencies are experts in what they do. They have access to vast networks of job seekers and know how to find the right kind of talent. This means that time is saved and the process moves along much smoother.


Analytics and Reporting

RPO providers track and trace every candidate through the recruitment process. This allows for real-time reporting and gives clients detailed insights about what is going on. Not to mention how much stress it takes off your plate when there are future audits of your recruitment activity.

Social Media Management

As we mentioned before, SMM or social media management goes hand-in-hand with all this ORM. We ensure that your presence and message are consistent across the different platforms that you want to target. Keeping your profiles up to date and filled with engaging content is the key to winning over potential customers.
