Randstad Sourceright Highlights the Importance of Governance in Carrying Out an Effective RPO Strategy

Company's Latest White Paper Links Formal Governance Strategy to Successful RPO Operations

BOSTON, MA -- (Marketwire) -- 12/06/12 -- Randstad Sourceright, a global talent leader, today announced the release of its latest white paper, "The Role of Governance in an Effective RPO Strategy." The new white paper describes why governance is so essential to the success of any Recruitment Process Outsourcing (RPO) program and provides steps organizations can take to ensure proper governance throughout all levels of the engagement.

"A formalized governance structure provides critical advantages to an RPO engagement, from facilitating performance measurement to enabling adjustments to addressing evolving needs," said Rebecca Callahan, Randstad Sourceright's president of Recruitment Process Outsourcing. "With formal governance in place, the company and its RPO provider can more easily work together to ensure that goals are consistently met throughout the program, necessary development and support are easily facilitated, and the company's ongoing success is supported by a high-performing workforce and optimized talent strategy."

The role of RPO is changing and maturing, with companies moving toward solutions that address a growing array of strategic needs, such as driving the employer brand to aligning talent strategy to core business objectives. Additionally, a number of companies have adopted RPO to help them expand operations to multiple countries across global regions. As more organizations leverage RPO solutions to source talent in an increasingly competitive hiring environment, many will find that the success of their RPO engagements is dependent on the presence of formal governance.

"The Role of Governance in an Effective RPO Strategy" explains how a governance strategy can improve the effectiveness of RPO engagements by providing a structure for measuring performance, facilitating communications, and supporting decision-making processes. Based on industry data and best practices, the white paper also describes how formal governance allows companies and RPO providers to act quickly when addressing changing needs and conditions to improve overall business agility.
