(WPG)™, the foremost company in Recruitment Process Outsourcing (RPO), and Raul Valentin, Sr. V.P. of Human Resources at Covance, one of the world's largest and most comprehensive drug development services companies, will be co-presenters from 11:05 a.m. – 11:45 a.m., Thursday, April 27 at the HRO World Conference at the New York Hilton. They will speak on the successful recruitment outsourcing relationship between their companies.

Covance’s remarkable business success created the need for novel and “best-in-industry” practices for managing fluctuating hiring needs, responding to fierce competition to hire the best talent, while minimizing costs, maximizing results and satisfying hiring mangers at all organizational levels. According to Covance’s 2004 Annual Report, with WPG’s assistance they were able to, "...double the volume of new hires, bringing approximately 1,600 employees on board in 2004...At the same time, we decreased our overall cost per hire by approximately 15% and improved the 'time-to-fill' a position by 10%."

Key success factors that will be highlighted include the implementation of the WPG team into Covance’s culture, lessons learned, 12-month results and expansion of the RPO model into Covance’s international locations.
