Disruptive Forces in the Recruitment Marketplace
In this dynamic webinar, top RPO leaders discuss five trends in the recruitment market place for 2013 including: consolidations, service segmentation, co-sourcing, and candidate pipeline.
“Recruitment Process Outsourcing (RPO) companies have a unique and well-informed view into overall economic trends and how companies are performing,” emphasized John Younger, President & CEO of Accolo. “There are few better leading indicators for employment data than knowing the recruiting activity that typically takes place three to six months before the hires are actually made. RPO providers have this aggregated data across many organizations. ”
“Consolidation through mergers and acquisitions (M&As) has led to a greater segmentation of available offerings for would-be RPO customers. Even with continued sluggish growth, the year ahead promises to be significant for the RPO industry,” said Joel Capperella. "The playing field in the recruitment process outsourcing industry has both narrowed and expanded, with numerous original founding players exiting, and a slew of new faces and makeovers joining the fray. This makes it harder for RPO providers to differentiate themselves, and harder for buyers to differentiate between them," said David Pollard, President and Founder of TalentFusion.
In this dynamic, high-energy session, several of the RPO industry’s leaders discuss the recruiting and hiring trends and activities across a multitude of companies and industries. Topics include how companies are becoming more sophisticated with their hiring approach and deploying strategies such as co-sourcing to satisfy their end-to-end recruiting needs, and the fundamental changes in the candidate landscape as they become more educated and tech-savvy. “In 2013, the markets will demand more aggressive talent community development and a greater focus on sourcing and pipelining,” said Joel Capperella.
The event is moderated by RPOA Immediate Past President president and Accolo CEO, John Younger. The panel includes: Joel Capprella, VP of Marketing, Yoh; Mark Lukens, Managing Partner, Method3; and David Pollard, President and Founder, TalentFusion.
“The recruitment landscape is rapidly changing from a provider, customer, and talent perspective,” said Mark Lukens. “Disruption is not about following a process, it is a mindset. To discard the old business cliches, challenge current assumptions, and remake the landscape”.
