What makes our RPO solutions different?
 

Powered by data

We make data-driven decisions to optimize 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, personalized 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 organization.  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.
