Limited Budget and Timeframe: How Cerecaptio Help Businesses Scale

How to scale efficiently with RPO

August 30, 2023

Imagine this: You’re VP of People at an organization of 300 people leading a team of 2 full-time recruiters. You just left a meeting where the board just decided that they would need additional 100 full-time headcounts to be able to meet the company goals before the year ends to appease investors. So, with a limited time frame plus a not-so-generous budget to really challenge you - there’s only a few different pathways that you can take in order to meet your KPIs/OKRs. As you’re in for the long run, culture fit would be key or else long-term growth would not work. This is a typical scenario that we continuously encounter in our line of business at Cerecaptio.

First, you could of course, grow your team of recruiters to 5 but it would take approximately 3 months to find and onboard the right person. With the kind of industry that you’re in, it’s going to be tough because not many recruiters might be up for that kind of challenge. Additionally, with the recruitment pace and the looming changes in the market - you might have to think about laying your team off if this goal changes at any time to keep your budget in check. Imagine the motivation blow to the direct team!

Second, you could work with a few different headhunting agencies to be able to meet your goals. All your 2 full-time recruiters would need to do would be to coordinate those conversations, manage their hiring managers, and do some sourcing and screening on the side. Seems easy enough since their workload might be manageable and these agencies have massive talent networks. However, you know headhunting agencies charge approximately 20% - 30% of the candidate’s annual salary. You might be able to negotiate this down to 15% but that is still really expensive considering you need to hire 100 people. You would go over your budget in a blink of an eye. Additionally, your recruiters would have their hands full making sure the candidates have a good culture fit since most headhunters work with only profile requirements. 

Finally, you could just work with Cerecaptio’s embedded RPO services. This would definitely work because it ticks all the boxes:

  • Cost-saving: 60% lower cost per hire.
  • In-house talent partners: All the benefits of an in-house recruiter without the need to hire a permanent employee. They can get up to speed quickly and do end-to-end recruitment.
  • Flexible and scalable: You can scale up or down depending on business needs. 
  • Flat fee monthly subscription fee: No hidden fees. Plus, all tools and their licenses are included.
  • Global coverage and local expertise: Cerecaptio has experience hiring in over 50 countries and strong local expertise to cover your recruitment needs anywhere in the world.

All you and your team would need to do is to onboard our talent consultants and we’re ready to go. Here are some of the reasons why Cerecaptio is the right fit for you.

Cost Optimization

Cerecaptio's RPO provides a scalable solution that aligns with your hiring volume or specific requirements. Instead of fixed costs associated with maintaining an internal team, you only pay for the recruitment services you utilize. This ensures that you have complete control over your recruitment expenses and can allocate resources more efficiently. The model allows you to scale up or down as per your hiring needs, further optimizing your budget allocation. The monthly subscription covers all successful hires, ensuring transparency and eliminating the risk of hidden charges.
