RPO; Recruitment Evolution or Revolution?

Are you thinking of changing your people landscape and wondering how to make it more innovative and effective without losing control?”

Morgan McKinley surveyed a number of organisations with a range of RPO experience from one to ten years within the IT, BPO and Financial Services sectors. The following is a summary of some of our key findings: 

How has your RPO partnership improved your business?

  • Improved the quality of hires due to a greater understanding of the cultural and technical fit
  • Reduced our time to hire
  • Reduced the cost per hire
  • Created a leaner and higher touch recruitment service for all stakeholders

What is working well with your RPO solution?

  • The end-to-end candidate management from attraction, sourcing and administration has improved
  • Reduction in recruitment costs and reliance on multiple agencies
  • The ability to flex and scale in accordance to our changing company requirements

What is your top tip for a successful RPO solution?

  • Treat the RPO provider like a partnership, by investing in the relationships and communication to build trust between both organisations


At the end of June, M3S, Morgan McKinley’s managed service division will host two breakfast briefings (21st June in Cork and 28th June in Dublin), for those interested in joining us and our guest speakers from Tyco, KBC and Abtran to explore these results in more detail. It will be an opportunity to learn more about RPO and how it can transform your people agenda to support your company’s’ recruitment patterns and trends.

Topics covered will include: 

  • The impact of implementing a RPO solution on your company’s HR/Recruitment team, Hiring Managers and Candidates
  • The benefits of the RPO partnership
  • Advice from employers to those considering outsourcing 


This session is an opportunity for you to hear from different organisations about their RPO experience and learnings to date. Please get in touch directly if you are interested in attending this event by emailing Clodagh Bannigan, Director of M3S.
