The Role of Technology in RPO-Buy or Build?

Ladd Richland, chief executive officer of CRI, a global Recruitment Process Outsourcing (RPO) firm, will be a featured panelist at the inaugural RPO Summit sponsored by the RPO Alliance. The RPO Summit will be held in Chicago on November 6, 2007 at the Hyatt Regency O’Hare and will gather the top thought leaders in the RPO industry for discussions of recruiting best practices.

Richland will be a panelist on the topic of technology and its role in Recruitment Process Outsourcing. The panel – titled "The Role of Technology in RPO-Buy or Build?" – will examine and discuss technology’s impact on the overall talent acquisition process.

With over a decade of experience in the RPO business and overseeing PeopleCapital, an award-winning Applicant Tracking System, Richland has a deep understanding of technology and its impact on recruiting.

"Determining how best to leverage technology and the dynamic factors involved with purchasing or building technology in-house will become a substantial differentiator for companies looking for the edge in the recruiting process," says Richland.

The panel will highlight the benefits, functions, features and economics associated with technology solutions. Richland will share the perspectives from a RPO provider as well as end-users of the technology relative to what has been successful in his experience.
