RPO: The Scalable and Cost Effective Recruiting Alternative

Before getting into why an RPO Solution is an excellent choice for your company’s hiring needs, let’s start with a quick “RPO 101.”

RPO stands for Recruitment Process Outsourcing, which simply means that recruiting, in part or whole, is transferred to an outside partner.

Get your minds out of the gutter, ya’ll. I’m talking about staffing firms.

Hello, everyone. I’m Jenny, and for the past five years, I’ve been employed by a “boutique” staffing firm known as STS Technical Services (STSTS).
