What makes our RPO solutions different?
 

Powered by data

We make data-driven decisions to optimise your hiring processes and deliver the talent you need effectively and efficiently. The key to operational excellence is accurate data, but many businesses struggle to produce consistent metrics and up-to-date market insight. That’s where RWInsights comes in. RWInsights is our cloud-based platform powered by 100+ data sources and a global team of data scientists, who are experts in talent analytics and the economic and demographic factors that influence talent. It gives you access to an always-on, personalised talent analytics platform, allowing you to build a truly data-led sourcing strategy.

Enabled by tech

RWConnect is the technology platform that underpins every aspect of our RPO solutions. It enables us to offer true scalability, deliver enhanced user experiences and uncover exceptional untapped talent pools, mapped to skills, with the use of embedded AI. So it sets our recruiters free to focus on the human side of recruitment and building connections. You can use our best-in-class tech as a complete RPO platform, or it can seamlessly integrate with your tech stack. We work with you to implement the solution that works best for your organisation.  We are constantly innovating and improving our tech to meet your future hiring needs, so you can stay ahead of the market without constantly upgrading your own systems.

Delivered by experts

Our business is built on providing the expertise to solve your toughest resourcing and talent management challenges. We have talent solutions specialists at every stage of the hiring lifecycle. Our teams will get to know you, champion your organisation’s story, and connect you to professionals who can transform your business. We have strong in-built capability for skills-first, diversity and environmental, social and governance (ESG) hiring needs. Our powerful combination of talent marketers and sourcing partners can help you explore and develop more diverse talent pools. Our experts in selection ensure a fair and meritocratic process every time. Whatever your challenges, we provide practical solutions and operational excellence at scale and speed, flexing the size and make-up of our team to match your requirements.
