Resourcing and administrative procedures for contract and permanent recruitment require time, effort and HR resources. This dilutes the efforts of HR which could be put to more valuable use if allocated to more strategic HR management issues. To take this administrative burden off HR practitioners’ hands, many organisations are turning to recruitment process outsourcing (RPO) partners.

Hence, why, research by Technavio shows the RPO market in Asia Pacific is expected to grow at a CAGR of over 21% between 2018-2022, driven by a need to improve the HR value chain and compliance. Among the key RPO target sectors, BFSI held the largest market, accounting for nearly 30% of the share. However, by 2022, the manufacturing segment is expected to surpass the BFSI segment to become the leading segment, accounting for a share of 30%.

The winners and finalist of the Best Recruitment Process Outsourcing (RPO) Partner category at the HR Vendors of the Year 2019Malaysia and Singapore, are organisations which clearly take the administrative recruitment work off their clients, while performing the required job with top quality. If your RPO partner is among the firms on this list, you can be assured you’re in safe hands.
