One of the major trends we are seeing in the Hospitality and Leisure sector is a movement towards semi or fully-integrated Recruitment Process Outsourcing (RPO) models. It is a clear sign that the market is maturing and that there is an increasing value placed on recruitment firms and the specialised service they can provide.
Hastings is currently engaged on various RPO projects across the Asia Pacific region. Projects include, sourcing and placing talent within specific job types or funnelling a broad range of talent to businesses with diverse needs. For an employer, the benefits of an RPO Model are wide-ranging, including, but not limited to improved candidate experience, shorter job vacancy periods, access to a more expansive talent network and of course, lower costs in relation to traditional recruitment models.
RPO allows Hastings to act as your internal recruitment team, delivering the full support of dedicated professionals, managed and trained by Hastings leaders. We literally become a part of your team, working with key stakeholders and gaining a deep understanding of your employment brand. Just as many of our clients outsource functions within their businesses be it Accounting, Public Relations, Marketing or Facilities Management to improve efficiencies and result, outsourcing talent acquisition is equally effective.
