At every level of your organization, It’s talent that

makes the difference.


Recruitment Process
Outsourcing (RPO)

The future of work is uncertain, but what if organizations relied on the talent acquisition function to prepare them for what’s next?

Whether it’s the next product launch, organizational change, strategic shift or in-demand skillset, Futurestep’s scalable and innovative approach to recruitment process outsourcing (RPO) allows talent acquisition teams to demonstrate their strategic value by ensuring the business is talent-ready for next.

Informed with data and insights, equipped with tools and technology, trained for career growth and supported around the world, our RPO solution brings top talent into your organization while reducing recruitment costs over the course of an engagement.

For us, RPO is more than just outsourcing the talent acquisition process though. We believe in building a partnership with our clients, often through a co-sourced recruitment model, to discover and deliver those candidates that will have the greatest impact on your business.

Our RPO solution combines the expertise of our recruiters with a state of the art technology platform and sophisticated methodologies to help clients streamline recruitment processes, enhance hiring manager and candidate experience, and improve quality of hire, ultimately impacting the long-term success of an organization.

What you gain with RPO

  • The cost to replace an employee can be an expensive process - in some cases costing more than double the employee’s annual salary according to some studies. With decades of experience, we have honed and refined our RPO solution to be as efficient as possible, designing it in a way to keep costs low.

  • Every day your company goes without filling a position is a day your company is not operating at maximum capacity. While pressure to reduce time to fill is great, placing candidates that are a poor fit for your organization in response to such pressures only results in turnover and subsequent hiring needs. With the ability to flex and scale in response to changing hiring demands, Futurestep’s RPO solution allows you to meet target time to hire goals without compromising on quality of candidate.

  • Recruiting best practices require more than just posting a job and waiting for the right candidate to apply. While this approach may net a few interested parties, the selection will be small and there is little guarantee that any of those candidates will be ideally suited to the role. Through innovative sourcing and employer brand strategies, as well as the ability to leverage the Korn Ferry talent pool and comprehensive job market mapping, Futurestep’s RPO solution is equipped to source candidates from a broader network. Combined with our best-in-class assessments and behavior interviewing techniques, we can then determine which qualified candidates will be a culture fit for your organization.

  • A strong employer brand and keen understanding of an organization’s unique Employer Value Proposition (EVP) are an important part of any organization’s talent and business strategies. With each recruitment process outsourcing RPO engagement, we leverage our Brand, Marketing & Communications COE to develop bespoke employer branding collateral and refined EVP messaging to assist with attracting candidates to an organization.

  • Futurestep’s recruitment platform layers on top of a client’s existing ATS and integrates with current and new recruitment tools and technologies - like AI-enabled sourcing and machine learning - to improve sourcing capabilities, drive efficiencies, and provide a holistic view of the talent acquisition process across all open requisitions in real-time.

  • A good talent strategy is designed to dovetail with the broader business strategy and supply the people and skills to effectively execute on that strategy. We work with our clients to create comprehensive recruitment plans for roles in every level of the organization. Not only do we help you to recognize exactly what is necessary to make your business thrive, we work with your leadership to fill your organization with the people who can make that happen. Recruitment process outsourcing is just the first step.
