Industry Analyst John Sumser Shares “Five Reasons RPO Contracts Fail – and How to Make Yours a Success” in RiseSmart-Sponsored Webinar

September 20, 2010

What distinguishes a great recruitment process outsourcing (RPO) relationship from a disastrous one? HR managers and executives can learn the key factors that separate RPO success from failure in a free RiseSmart-sponsored Webinar, “Five Reasons RPO Contracts Fail – and How to Make Yours a Success.” The one-hour event, presented by HRExaminer Editor John Sumser, takes place Wednesday, Sept. 22, at 11 a.m PDT / 2 p.m. EDT.

“This event is designed to teach you what to look for – and also what to look out for – when considering an RPO,” said Sumser, a veteran HR analyst whose magazine, HRExaminer, focuses on the people, technology, ideas and careers of senior leaders in human resources and human capital.

“The right RPO relationship gives human resources departments the opportunity to offload busy work and get on with the real business of HR,” said Bill Sebra, general manager of recruiting solutions for RiseSmart, who oversees the company’s Recruit Concierge RPO offering.

During the Webinar, Sumser will share the results of HRExaminer's survey of hundreds of HR professionals and outline a preferred process for identifying and evaluating an RPO vendor. Participants will also:

  • Get a look at RPO trends
  • Learn the differences between a typical staffing agency and an RPO vendor
  • Learn how to evaluate an RPO vendor
  • Identify major risks with an RPO contract and how to avoid them

By registering for the event, participants will be entered to win an Apple iPad. During the closing moments of the live event, organizers will provide a secret password to participants. The winner will be selected by a random drawing and contacted using the registration info provided. The winner must know the secret password.
