(PRWEB) February 10, 2011
HR.com, the largest social community dedicated to human resource professionals, with 194,000 members, is proud to announce their Advisory Board for the Institute for Human Resources – Recruitment Process Outsourcing Certification Program, launching on February 14th and 15th, 2011.
The ultimate goal of the Recruitment Process Outsourcing program is to provide certification and accreditation to industry professionals who are interested in advancing their career, obtaining deep domain expertise, valuable hands-on experience and knowledge that will enable them to make measurable improvements in their workplaces with respect to recruitment and managing RPO service providers.
Recruitment Process Outsourcing (RPO) is an outsourcing arrangement whereby an external provider takes over part or all of the recruitment functionalities of an organization. The RPO provider assumes responsibility over the hiring process, from job profiling through onboarding, as well as the resources, methodologies and reporting used. With effective implementation, RPO can reduce a company’s time to hire and associated costs, increase the quality of candidate pool and ensure regulatory compliance.
IHR’s certification and accreditation process is developed through an independent Advisory Board composed of industry experts with access to the latest technology, best practices and thought leaders in their respective spaces.
Gary Bragar, HR Outsourcing Research Director, Nelson Hall, says, “With the global economy in uncertainty and companies needing to control costs, yet still be ready to quickly meet demand to hire the best talent, outsourcing your recruitment might be the most efficient and scalable option for many HR Departments, both domestic and global.
