Evaluating RPO vendors is much more than a cost comparison effort
Los Angeles (PRWEB) April 10, 2009
Futurestep, a Korn/Ferry Company (NYSE: KFY) specializing in strategic talent solutions, today announced the release of a new whitepaper, Changing the Conversation: Rethinking Procurement and Performance for Real RPO Value. Developed by Futurestep Chief Executive Officer Robert McNabb, the whitepaper was created in answer to a growing number of requests from corporate planners for practical input on guiding an RPO vendor selection process.
The publication draws from interviews with talent leaders who have undertaken successful RPO initiatives across a number of key industries, including oil and gas, telecommunications, global export (diary products) and financial services. Notably, the report highlights specific areas of interest beyond traditional cost-related points of comparison. Among the keys to success cited by talent leaders in the report, several areas of interest remained top of mind. These include: strategic capability, seamless relationship between provider and client, and a partnership approach to addressing talent issues.
“Evaluating RPO vendors is much more than a cost comparison effort,” notes Robert McNabb. “We constantly hear from clients who must balance procurement-driven cost concerns against the need to understand which choice will deliver the most business impact. They understand that RPO evaluation must begin as a conversation about total business value. This publication reflects that understanding, and is a part of Futurestep’s long-standing commitment to thought leadership in all facets of talent acquisition and talent management strategy.”
The publication was released today, and is available for download on the Futurestep Web site at http://www.futurestep.com.
