Engagement Model Segmentation Analysis

Based on the engagement models, the global recruitment process outsourcing (RPO) market is segmented into the following categories

  • On-demand RPO
  • End-to-end RPO

In 2014, the global recruitment process outsourcing market was dominated by the on-demand engagement model segment. The segment accounted for a market share, in terms of revenue, of more than 3/4th of the total market worldwide. On-demand engagement model includes a partial transfer of the recruitment processes to a third-party RPO vendor. This enables the client organization to have the necessary control over their recruitment process along with a reduction in internal costs. The on-demand engagement model is so far the most preferred type of engagement, majorly due to its flexibility, scalability, and low cost.

Another major factor responsible for the dominance of the on-demand RPO segment is the hesitance of business organizations toward RPO. Most organizations are hesitant about transferring all of their recruitment processes to the RPO vendor. Thus, the segment is expected to retain its dominant position in the market in the coming years. Nevertheless, with growing adoption and confidence in RPO service, the demand for end-to-end RPO is expected to soar substantially in the coming years. The end-to-end RPO model comprises the entire service package, including all of the recruitment processes of any organization. This enables the client organization to transfer their entire recruitment processes to the RPO vendor, thereby focusing on their core business operations.

Recruitment process outsourcing (RPO) is among the most promising emerging industries in the recruitment sector. It refers to a segment of business process outsourcing wherein an employer (client organization) hands over all or some of their recruitment processes to an external service provider. Recruitment process outsourcing should not be confused with staffing which simply includes recruiting, positioning, and overseeing the employees in the client organization. On the contrary, RPO service providers work along with their client organization’s recruitment process as a whole. Another significant difference is the RPO service provider bearing the responsibility for their recruitment results. Additionally, rather than promoting its own brand, an RPO service provider focuses on endorsing its client’s brand, which in turn becomes beneficial for its client.

RPO service providers may offer the following recruitment processes to their clients:

  • Job analysis
  • Candidate sourcing
  • Recruitment process mapping
  • Recruitment training
  • Recruitment/technology consulting
  • Third-party vendor management

The recruitment process outsourcing market has been in existence since the early 2000s, with major service adoption in the U.S. The concept of RPO hails from the human resource outsourcing (HRO) service, which was introduced in the early 1980s. The most prominent services offered by the HRO companies were taxes, benefits, and payroll handling. However, business organizations still face the challenges of cost as well as difficulty in hiring skilled personnel. In the course of time, as business organizations started shifting more towards outsourcing their processes, the idea of recruitment process outsourcing gained momentum. Initially, RPO service only included gathering a list of suitable candidates from the RPO vendors. This, however, did not help many organizations in reducing their overheads. With increasing competition in the labor market, a significant number of business organizations started outsourcing their recruitment processes to RPO vendors. As a result, the market for recruitment process outsourcing has witnessed substantial growth worldwide in the past few years. Due to lower costs coupled with the credibility of the service, the demand for RPO is expected to rise extensively in the coming years.

On the basis of the engagement model, the most popular models considered under the scope of this report are:

  • On-demand RPO
  • End-to-end RPO

On-demand RPO refers to an engagement model wherein the client organization transfers some of its recruitment processes to the RPO vendor. This is the most flexible mode of engagement with minimal cost. As per the term, the RPO vendors extend service to their clients depending upon the requirement. On the other hand, the end-to-end model comprises outsourcing the entire recruitment process to the RPO vendor. Currently, the on-demand RPO model accounts for the largest share, in terms of revenue and adoption, worldwide. Although RPO has become popular enough for business organizations across the globe, most of these organizations still prefer outsourcing part of their recruitment processes to RPO vendors. Due to hesitance toward outsourcing the entire process, the solution is less popular. Nevertheless, with the increasing adoption of outsourced services globally, coupled with reduced costs, the demand for the end-to-end RPO model is expected to surge substantially in the coming years.

Additionally, IT companies are among the first victims of economic downturn consequences and hence constantly put in efforts to reduce their overheads. As a result, a large number of companies are now adopting RPO services rather than having an internal panel. Thus, the segment is estimated to retain its dominant position in the market throughout the forecast period. ITeS and BPO segment accounts for the second largest share in terms of revenue and is expected to retain their position during the forecast period.
