Project based RPO addresses the needs of a client with inconsistent hiring but likes the accountability and services of a full RPO solution. Our project based services were created to further scale our business to meet the needs of clients that have blocks of positions that need filled and have the desire to outsource that hiring to a competent solutions-based workforce partner.
“Tailored Managements partnership model has proven to be a valuable resource in heightening our efforts to acquire the best talent available. Their people and processes have reduced the burden on our managers and given us the ability to bring on exceptional talent we need in a competitive environment.”
-Terry L., Director of Human Resources
Examples of why clients have used project-based RPO in the past:
Rapid Expansion- Client acquired a large account which required an increase in headcount within the call center. Client contacted Tailored Management to fill 20 positions within a defined period of time.
Acquisition- Client recently acquired a competitor which resulted in consolidation of duties to our clients corporate HQ. Tailored Management assisted in assessing the upcoming hiring needs and developed a recruiting program that successfully filled a variety of positions from accounting/finance to engineering and marketing.
Reinvestment/new technology implementation- Client recently acquired new technology and equipment for their manufacturing facility which required the addition of 5 engineers over a 60 day period. Tailored Management implemented a recruiting program to identify candidates with the unique skill sets required and successfully completed the project.
Unexpected increase in turnover- Our client, a local University, recently experienced a higher than normal level of resignations and terminations. Before long, the existing recruiting staff was overwhelmed and fell behind in their duties which resulted in a decreased level of service to applicants and hiring managers. Tailored Management was engaged for a period of 3 months to assist in recruiting and research which ultimately resolved the problem and brought services levels back in line.
Measurable results- Tailored partners with our clients to develop quantifiable metrics which measure our success.
Vendor accountability- Tailored Management’s compensation is closely tied to performance- if we don’t meet and exceed expectations we don’t get paid.
Project Manager- Every client is assigned a project manager which will have ultimate responsibility and ownership of the success of the engagement. The project manager will also be charged with learning each client’s unique culture and hiring preferences.
Client-owned research- Each client receives a weekly progress report detailed every company and prospective candidate contacted with the result of that call. This report alone is invaluable!
