Recruitment Process Outsourcing Association (RPOA), the first professional association for the Recruitment Process outsourcing (RPO) industry, today announces 2013-14 Board Members

San Rafael, CA (PRWEB) Janaury 22, 2013 – Recruitment Process Outsourcing Association (RPOA), the first professional association for the Recruitment Process outsourcing (RPO) industry, today announces a new Board for 2013-14.

“As Recruitment Process Outsourcing (RPO) has reached new high growth years, industry leadership is critical,” emphasized Mike Mayeux, Novotus CEO. “This segment is just over a decade old and continued collaboration between the companies that provide this valuable service will have a material impact on existing and future clients of RPO services”.

“We have big plans for taking the RPOA to a new level of service for both buyers and providers of RPO.” – Mike Mayeux, Novotus CEO and RPOA President

The 2013-14 RPOA Board include: President, Mike Mayeux of Novotus; President, Vice President/President Elect; Joel Capperella of Yoh; Immediate Past President, John Younger of Accolo; Secretary/Treasurer, Matt Schreyer of Instigate; At Large Board Member, Mark Lukens of Method3.

“I am delighted to see the organization grows so fast with such capable executives,” said John Younger, Accolo President. “The organizations they represent continue to define and elevate the entire recruitment process outsourcing industry.”

In addition to peer-support and thought-leadership, the RPOA’s mission is to educate the market about RPO. Joel Capperella, Yoh’s Vice President of Marketing, expresses his commitment and passion for this mission: “The RPO space is incredibly underserved by the ‘analyst’ that serves it,” Joel said. “Not only are the buyers increasing the sophistication with which they approach evaluation of the services, the services themselves are becoming more segmented to meet the demand of a changing market. As such, I firmly believe that we as practitioners must be committed to providing as much information and value to the entire ecosystem so that the discipline serves to advance the workforce related strategic objectives of even the smallest organizations seeking to take an outsourced approach to their recruiting needs”.

“The passion John and Mike put into starting and growing the RPOA is inspiring,” said Lamees Abourahma, RPOA Executive Director. “With the commitment of the new Board and the growing membership, we have the momentum to achieve new breakthroughs for the RPOA and the RPO industry.”

Instigate Expands Talent Acquisition Services

Jan 31, 2011   //   by Instigate   //   News  //  Comments Off on Instigate Expands Talent Acquisition Services

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

St. Paul, Minnesota (February 1, 2011) – Instigate, a leading talent-management firm, is expanding its services to offer clients professional search and contract placement services in addition to recruitment process outsourcing (RPO), which has been the centerpiece of the company’s service model.

Recognizing that traditional staffing approaches can be the right fit for many organizations, Instigate is broadening its service options to give businesses a competitive advantage in their recruiting efforts. Clients can now choose from the RPO model, in which Instigate provides a complete end-to-end recruiting process and team, or a more traditional search or contingency arrangements.

 “One size does not fit all,” says Christi Schreyer, one of the co-founders of Instigate. “And that’s especially true in a tough economy. Our clients have to do more with less, and it’s our job to help them. By offering more flexibility, we give them new opportunities to maximize their search for core and contract talent—without sacrificing quality or service.”

Founded in 1999, Instigate helps small and medium businesses (SMBs) make the most of their staffing and recruiting resources. Through RPO, they strive to level the playing field for SMBs, who are challenged to compete for talent without the budgets, time or people that FORTUNE 500s have at their disposal. With more than 30 years of experience in talent acquisition, Instigate’s leadership believes their expanded service offerings combine the best of both worlds: swift results for the short term, and sophisticated resources for the long term.

Those sophisticated RPO resources, according to Schreyer, offer a clear advantage over other traditional staffing firms. Regardless of which service model they choose, RPO or traditional staffing, clients will have access to Instigate’s cutting-edge technology and processes, which widen hiring networks to increase the quality and quantity of talent pools, speed up the recruiting process, and reduce both the time and expense of filling a position.

However companies choose to conduct their recruiting efforts, Schreyer and her team are eager to lend their expertise. “We’re excited about the new opportunities—not only to help our clients find the best people but to do that as efficiently and affordably as possible.”

Instigate Has Gone Sourcing 3.0 with Semantic Search!

Sep 20, 2010   //   by Instigate   //   Blog, News  //  Comments Off on Instigate Has Gone Sourcing 3.0 with Semantic Search!

It is no secret recruiters have used the Internet for years to find the most qualified candidates. A majority of these efforts have involved keyword searching on resume databases and social network sites. The next wave of Internet search is already underway and Instigate is ready to deliver the results to you. Welcome to Semantic Search!

Semantic Search shifts the focus from ‘keyword’ sourcing to the ‘actual’ meanings found within resumes and job descriptions. At the heart of semantic search is search engine and ranking technology which enables our Internet searches to be ‘trained’ to identify the equivalent meanings of terms found in resumes. No two company job descriptions or candidate resumes are written alike, semantic search is able to find hidden matches that current rigid searches would normally overlook.

The value of Semantic Search:

Better Candidates

By improving and automating the searching of a large number of different passive and active candidate sources, Instigate is able to provide you with results on the best matched individuals from tens of thousands of potential candidates found on the Internet.

Faster Hires

Instigate is now able to filter out near-match candidates far more effectively than traditional Internet search efforts. Semantic Search allows us to filter and rank results automatically to greatly reduce the amount of time necessary to sort through lesser qualified candidates.

Reduce Hiring Costs

Our team can focus more time on recruiting and candidate management – not just candidate sourcing. Finding qualified candidates in a fraction of the time of traditional search means less time and money wasted on searching through hundreds of thousands of candidates and interviewing near-matches. Semantic Search will help us match you with your top talent faster.

Semantic Search is now active with all TalentAssist™ – Enterprise-Wide Recruitment Process Outsourcing Services. We are excited to add this capability to our service offerings as we focus on delivering to our valued clients best-in-class recruitment processes, technology and resources. Please feel free to contact us to learn more about how we are putting Semantic Search to work for you.

Key Service Values

  • Reduce Hiring Cost
  • Improve Candidate Quality
