How RPO paved the way for a US based digital marketing agency to setup in India.

I am a part of the Recruitment Process Outsourcing (RPO) Team of ManpowerGroup and as part of my routine morning chores, was browsing LinkedIN to check whats going on in job space. And Boom! So many vacancies of a single company. The first thought that struck me is they are going bonkers trying to recruit people. Second thought - I have scope for my Recruitment Process Outsourcing (RPO) business and I can well position ManpowerGroup since we both had the Origin - US. I met them and understood that they had ambitious plans for India and they were looking for a Recruitment partner who not only handles their Recruitment process but also goes. That’s exactly what we did. Very few Recruitment companies will do what we, as ManpowerGroup, offered them:

- Market scoping and compensation surveys to provide market insights on diverse roles and their talent pool availability.
- Completely equipped make-shift center within Manpower premises for initial 3 months to facilitate on-ground interviews.
- Video interviewing matching US timing to seamlessly conduct US interviews.
- Dedicated home-grown team of veteran recruiters with deep understanding of the domain.
- Separate teams to handle leadership and the rest of mandates.
- Periodic reviews with dashboards to track and monitor progress.

If you consider the bullet points, I am feeling really proud to instrumental in leading the RPO team that helped set up the client’s base in an unknown country, giving them the comfort that their ambitious plans can well be achieved. Success indeed depends of the Partnerships you develop and the wholehearted trust you bestow on that partnership to deliver.

“Manpower was an instrumental partner in establishing our Bangalore presence. Their ability to ramp up quickly and source candidates across a variety of technologies & skills was essential to our success.” In my client’s own words. Why wouldn’t it be a proud moment for me!
