RPO is growing in popularity in Europe for a number of reasons, according to Craig Sweeney, SVP Global Strategic Talent Solutions, WilsonHCG.
He made the comments during an interview with journalists from Intelligence Group about the state of RPO in Europe.
“I think one of the growing areas across Europe is internal teams using RPO as strategic partners. Organizations build an internal function that can manage fifty percent of what they see as business as usual, and then they bring in a partner for the rest. Across Europe, we’re seeing this happen much more often. This is as much about the ability to scale up as it is about technology,” Sweeney said.
He also suggested the COVID-19 pandemic has accelerated trends in talent acquisition.
