Case Study
The article presents two case studies which illustrate how recruitment process outsourcing (RPO) assists businesses in their organisational needs. The first case involves World Duty Free whose recruitment for Heatrow Airport's Terminal 5 was handled by ResourceBank followed by a blue chip company whose recruitment and employer brand was handled by Resource Solutions. Both of the challenges experienced by the two RPOs in terms of flexibility and people management were discussed.
