Today’s article will show businesses what they need to know before you choose an RPO service provider or their recruiting solutions. In this post, Navigos Search will cover some of the newer RPO engagement options, also known as emerging RPO services in Vietnam.

What are the RPO services?

RPO stands for Recruitment Process Outsourcing and it is a form of Business process outsourcing (BPO). It is a business model where a company engages a third-party expert in the management of the recruitment function (in whole or part) to drive cost, quality, efficiency, service, and scalability benefits.

The third-party RPO vendor is responsible for hiring new staff to fill the vacant positions in that company. Moreover, an RPO provider can act as an extension of a company's HR or Resourcing function, sitting on-site with the client providing a holistic recruiting solution. 

Additionally, RPO can also help businesses with mass recruitment services, which allows the business to hire employees en masse for the same position. For example, when you need to hire 20 employees for the year-end campaign who are all to start on the same date and are of a similar position, then Mass Recruitment can bring you to success.

RPO could help enterprises reduce time to hire by 40 percent and deliver cost savings of more than 50 percent if they manage well with a quality vendor. In all cases, RPO differs greatly from providers such as contingent search providers or staffing companies in ownership of the management and design of the hiring process and the responsibility of results.

RPO provider acts as an extension of an internal HR or TA (Talent Acquisition) team of a hiring organization, which means that:

  • The RPO team adapts to the client’s policies, processes, and even culture
  • The team operates from the client’s premises unless requested otherwise.
  • The RPO team may follow their dress code, wear the client’s company name badges for the duration of the RPO project.
  • The consultants introduce themselves using the name of the client’s enterprise when they talk with potential candidates.

Benefits of Outsourcing RPO services

Below are some reasons that explain why RPO is important and the benefits of this service.

1. Scales according to need

RPO is important because it can result in a significant difference in the cost efficiency of companies’ hiring processes. In every business, resourcing needs vary throughout the year and across multiple years, in a kind of a cycle.

For example, retailers will typically hire extra staff in order to meet higher customer demand during the festive season. The resources of a traditional HR department cannot adapt to such an increase and decrease in demand and instead remain about the same level throughout the year.  Subsequently, the team passes through cycles of being overstretched and underutilized. With RPO services Vietnam, companies only pay for what they need at that point in time. It is a reasonable solution that adapts properly to the changing requirements of enterprises’ business.

2. Makes better use of companies’ time

Companies will have more time to focus on other parts of the business with the more time-consuming aspects of the hiring process passed onto the RPO services Vietnam providers.

An RPO third-party will not only search for enterprise potential candidates and initiate discussions with passive candidates, but also conduct the arrangement of interviews, filling needed information into the tracking system and doing necessary checks.

3. Provides enterprises with accountability

One of the main benefits of establishing a partnership with an RPO agency is the level of accountability that a Service Level Agreement (SLA) can provide. Usually, the RPO provider will share their breakdowns and measurements with enterprises, enables them to understand the proficiency of the overall hiring process. It is not that the traditional HR internal team do not conduct their own analysis. The difference is that companies can more firmly feedback their RPO provider when they fall below some expected standards and contravene the SLA. 


In conclusion, when implemented correctly, RPO enhances recruiting effectiveness and gives an organization a competitive advantage. By improving recruiting and hiring, an organization places the right people in the right positions, creating an environment where everybody wins: employees are happier, management is more effective, executives hit their numbers and the organization overall is better positioned for success.
