Evolution of RPOs in Australia



RPO or Recruitment Process Outsourcing, a form of outsourcing where an employer transfers all or part of its recruitment functions to an external service provider, has been around for some time in Australia.

But very little data is available to gauge the size, prevalence, types and extent of  RPO adoption by companies in Australia. Anecdotal evidences seem to suggest that adoption is increasing, driven in large part by the fact that there is no one-size-fits-all RPO model. In fact the type of RPO models differ across industry sectors and locations, influenced greatly by size of organisation, culture, volume of jobs and the expertise of suppliers.

Navigating the Australian Job Board Landscape (Job Board Report 2010 Released)



JobBoardReportblog The 2010 Job Board Report is ready for download here. Here are four observations from the report:

The Competitive Landscape
The wrath of the downturn spared no one; industry revenue dipped by 21%.  However, the industry grew in numbers even in the midst of falling revenue. We recorded 270 jobs boards, an increase of 14% from last year, and many more are still in the woodwork (we counted around 50). Convinced that the print industry has no long-term future, job boards are buoyed by the fact that spending on print media still amounts to an estimated $400-600 million every year.

Talent Tidbits



Money quote

“The leaders of Great Groups love talent and know where to find it. They revel in the talent of others.” – Warren Bennis & Patricia Ward Biederman, Organizing Genius

Skills shortage
It’s never wise to generalise, especially for something as unique and diverse as ‘skills’. Gartner believes a shortage of Business Intelligence Specialist is hampering projects. Not every sector is affected by the downturn.  Meanwhile, a cohort of very smart people are getting together to discuss the long-term skills shortage facing Australia (brochure)
