Recruiting top talent is critical to the success of any organisation. A successful hiring process can act as a driving force for growth. With a well-planned approach, the ripple effects can be significant, such as increasing employee retention and productivity, improving customer satisfaction, and generating higher revenue.
However, the traditional method of hiring HR staff to manage the recruitment process can be expensive, time-consuming, and often ineffective when you take into account the time to hire (that’s time to hire a HR team before you start to think about the additional talent they need to hire!), onboarding and settling in.
What is embedded recruitment?
Embedded recruitment is a flexible approach to recruitment that involves outsourcing the recruitment process to a dedicated team of experts who work alongside the hiring team to identify, attract and select the best candidates for the job. You may know it as a modern take on the traditional RPO model, Troi offers a supercharged RPO model – outsourced recruitment via a team of senior recruiters that fully embed themselves within the client ecosystem.
Troi offers a scalable embedded recruitment service providing in-house talent acquisition teams to help organisations hire at scale and retain. All on a flexible monthly basis. Our ethos is to fully embed our talent acquisition team into your company, living and breathing your culture and values.
Cost of Hiring HR Staff
Hiring HR staff to manage the recruitment process can be expensive. HR staff typically require a salary, benefits, and other expenses such as training, software, and office space. These costs can add up quickly, especially if the organisation has a high volume of recruitment needs. Additionally, HR staff may lack the expertise or experience to identify and attract top talent, leading to high turnover rates and increased costs associated with rehiring and training new staff.
The flexibility of Embedded Recruitment
One of the key benefits of embedded recruitment is its flexibility. Unlike hiring HR staff, which may require a long-term commitment, embedded recruitment can be tailored to the organization’s specific needs. This means that organizations can scale up or down their recruitment efforts depending on their hiring needs.
For example, if an organisation has a sudden surge in hiring needs, they can quickly ramp up their recruitment efforts by working with an embedded recruitment firm. Similarly, if an organization experiences a lull in hiring needs, they can scale back their recruitment efforts and reduce their costs. This flexibility allows organizations to be more agile and responsive to changes in the job market and their business needs.
Recruitment companies and organisations typically rely on their own communication channels and branding to attract potential candidates. To prevent candidates from bypassing the agency and applying directly, they often keep the client company’s name confidential. However, this approach may not appeal to top talent who prioritise authenticity and trust in the hiring process.
On the other hand, the embedded recruitment process takes a different approach. It utilises your company’s channels and branding to provide full details about the job opening, fostering transparency and reaching a broader range of candidates, including highly qualified ones. By adopting this approach, you can enhance your employer brand, as candidates will have a consistent, credible, and positive experience.
Senior Recruitment Experience
Another benefit of embedded recruitment is the senior recruitment experience that comes with this model. Embedded recruiters are typically seasoned professionals with years of experience in the recruitment industry. Troi’s very own team of recruiters has clocked up a minimum of 8-10 years of experience each in tech and commercial recruiting – covering both agency and internal recruitment. They have a deep understanding of the job market, and they know how to identify and attract top talent for their clients.
This expertise is invaluable when it comes to finding the right candidates for the job. Embedded recruiters can hit the ground running and quickly identify the best candidates for the organization’s needs. They know where to look for candidates, how to screen resumes, and how to conduct effective interviews. This reduces the time and costs associated with the recruitment process and ensures that the organization hires the right candidate for the job.
Cost Savings and Quality of Hire
The combination of flexibility and senior recruitment experience that comes with embedded recruitment can result in significant cost savings for organisations. By outsourcing the recruitment process to an embedded recruitment firm, organisations can save money on salaries, benefits, and other expenses associated with hiring HR staff. They can also reduce the costs associated with turnover rates by ensuring that the right candidates are hired for the job.
Moreover, the quality of hire is often higher when working with an embedded recruitment firm. These firms have access to a wider pool of candidates, and their expertise in the recruitment process ensures that the right candidate is identified and hired for the job.
