Workshop D: Build or Buy: The Business Case to Recruitment Outsourcing

Outsourcing recruitment is not new; in fact it’s been around for almost 20 years in different forms, under different names. But the move to RPO firms has really ignited during the past few years. Would outsourcing some or all of the recruitment function be right for your company? As service offerings mature and stabilize do they meet your tentative needs? How will you measure the many dimensions of success or failure of the service levels? What is an appropriate exit strategy if necessary?
During this workshop you’ll answer these tough questions in the context of your organization’s needs. You’ll identify the key criteria you need to make sound business decisions in regard to RPO. The workbook provided in this workshop will be your roadmap where you apply your company’s existing processes and review what make sense for your recruiting group at any given moment. If you’re thinking about recruitment outsourcing, in the middle of negotiation or perhaps have already entered into an agreement, you’ll take away hands-on, practical advice that can affect the success or failure of your RPO model.

Workshop E: Demonstrate Your Recruiting ROI with Recruiting Metrics: Measurement Tools for Today’s Recruiting Initiatives

Recruiting Metrics help recruiters make more informed decisions when it comes to candidate quality and experience. Used properly, Recruiting Metrics can advance a relationship between the recruiter and hiring manager, and can provide increased credibility and consistent results. This workshop will point out the problems associated with traditional metrics like cost per hire and turnover as it focuses on the recruiter of today and the metrics designed to address today’s recruiting challenges.
In this workshop you will learn how to apply these metrics to increase efficiency, productivity, accountability, and hiring success. You will explore how to align the right metrics with the corresponding recruiting goals and initiatives, how to utilize metrics to motivate your recruiters to accomplish clearly defined goals and more.
