CHICAGO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–As companies look to streamline business processes and cut costs, recruitment process outsourcing (RPO) is gaining popularity. The Jacobson Group, the nation’s largest provider of insurance talent, is building on its success in the RPO arena by announcing the addition of a standalone RPO service line to assist the insurance industry with enterprise-wide hiring needs. The official launch of Jacobson’s RPO service provides the industry with a valuable recruiting option.
RPO is a form of business process outsourcing where an employer outsources or transfers all or part of its recruitment activities to an external provider. An RPO provider essentially functions as an internal recruiting operation, working with the client’s existing human resources structure to create and manage a hiring model from start-to-finish and everywhere in between. Jacobson’s RPO services offer a flexible and scalable outsourced solution on an ongoing or project basis for volume direct hire needs.
“RPO is not a new concept,” says David E. Coons, senior vice president of Jacobson, “but insurance-specific providers are not prevalent. With more than 40 years of insurance recruiting experience, our firm is well-positioned to fill that gap by adding RPO services as a natural extension of our suite of services.”
Drawing on his previous experience as vice president with a large generalist RPO provider, Coons will lead Jacobson’s RPO practice. Coons will continue to provide leadership to Jacobson’s professional recruiting and temporary staffing teams, as well.
