What Are the Differences Between RPO and Traditional Headhunt?

1.    Different in hiring process:
  • RPO: RPO is the whole system and process for the company ranging from candidate searching, interview organization, position training, and employee orientation. It focuses on building the workflow for the company to gather employees to conduct daily operation activities.
  • Headhunt: headhunt is result-oriented. It only includes parts of the hiring process, such as candidate searching and organizing interviews. The main aim of headhunt is to find talent for a specific position, rather than establishing the recruitment system.

2.    Different in numbers of position:

  • RPO: RPO is an ideal choice for recruiting employees for daily operation activities, such as general management, administration affairs, and fundamental accounting recordings. RPO will help find general labor for various fields and can cover a greater number of positions to be taken.
  • Headhunt: headhunt, on the other hand, pays more attention to hiring high-level talent for a very specific position by making the best fit for this candidate. The candidate needs to have closely related background and show outstanding career potential before being considered for an interview invitation. The positions that require headhunt services usually come in limited numbers.

3.    Different in expenses:
  • RPO: the service fee of RPO is usually charged in a monthly basis. It may include the management fee for the entire hiring function as well as some transactional fess to fill the positions.
  • Headhunt: considering the difficulty of finding the most suitable candidate for the position, the service fee of headhunt is always higher than and it will cost a given ratio, usually between 10% to 30% of the annual salary, when the candidate is placed.

When Choose Headhunt?

Headhunting is the active searching and recruiting of talented individuals who may be employed elsewhere. The company often works with a headhunt agency (the headhunter) who will target and approach the desired individual on behalf of the employer and offer a job opportunity.

The key advantage of headhunting is that it enables companies to find and recruit highly skilled individuals. By taking active and positive actions, you may get access to your ideal candidates who are not looking for a new job and seeking a career change. This surely enlarges your talent pool and will be truly beneficial for your company when your position requires specific skills or expertise. 
In addition, headhunting can be more time-effective due to its highly targeted candidate requirement.
