  • RPO Market Developments

    RPO growth has been primarily driven by lack of internal bandwidth to support hiring needs and lack of ability to service niche challenging markets. Managing business expectations to meet time-to-hire expectations is becoming more challenging, particularly for professional and technical hires. Analytics is key to addressing not only the most efficient source of hire but also to set business expectations on candidate availability. Cost of hire is not the most important factor for buyers looking at RPO solutions.As a result RPO of interest from buyers, RPO growth continues to be strong, with global RPO revenue up 13% year-on-year in 2016. This segment continues to outperform the wider staffing market, which experienced growth of 5% in 2016 (SIA Report: Global Staffing Industry Forecast October 2017).A number of major service development trends are identified, of which are primarily driven by the environment of heightened talent scarcity, including: Trend 1: The Rise of Automated Sourcing and “Ready Now” Talent Pools Trend 2: The Candidate is King Trend 3: Growing Analytics and Benchmarking Sophistication Trend 4: Strategic Talent Acquisition Partner to Strategic Talent Management Partner Trend 5: Total Talent Acquisition Trend 6: Evolving Technology Stacks RPO services are often described by vendors as “end-to-end”, from sourcing to onboarding. In fact, 80% of the market is represented by this. However, there has been a growth in “sourcing & selection” only services (representing 20% of the market in 2016, up markedly from 12% in 2015).Besides offering market data and interviewing, RPO services have a heavy emphasis on talent pool management and supporting internal moves. RPO programs primarily focus on directly sourcing candidates, however some still rely on agencies and suppliers. Over 2016, there has been a notable increase in the adoption of video to support the process, now representing 19% of clients adopting this, up from 10% in 2015.Single country contracts represent the largest share of the market by client geographical scope, representing 59% of the total though RPO programs often support multiple regions and geographies. In 2016, 39% of the RPO market related to multi-country scope contracts with a sizeable proportion (approximately 18%) represents programs that cover three or more regions.The data and analysis included in this report is based on the results of a comprehensive survey of 24 RPO providers followed by an exhaustive line-by-line review of the findings.Click the link below to download the report: RPO Market Developments 20171215 - You do not have permission to view this object.

  • VMS Market Developments Part 3: Differentiators

    The purpose of this report is to highlight where demonstrated differentiation exists across providers.  The criteria used to assess VMS provider capability and maturity are grouped into the categories below.VMS Functionality and Technical CapabilityThis is evaluated as product completeness and quality to support: Core functionality maturity: through demonstration of functionality and evidence of client uptake to support vendor management processes (refer to Appendix I) with specific critera for supplier management, statement of work and direct sourcing (to support Direct Sourcing and Contingent RPO) Enabling functionality maturity: through user interface, workflows, single sign-on and user administration offerings including delegations, contextual menus/search and flexibility of widget design and user defined menus, reporting capability including ad hoc reporting, trend reporting, document storage, CRM capability, ability to build in tolerances and report alerts, ability to save favorites, drill down capability of reporting and ability to export to various applications. Specific criteria defined for usability/mobile, analytics and benchmarking. Product support and development maturity: technical service levels and system availability, online developer community, disaster recovery plans, version and release management processes, quality processes including development/test/production system offerings, bi-directional API’s with partner products, availability of implementation roadmaps and guides, product development processes and level of engagement with user groups, implementation and training material, implementation certification programs and integration partners including offering visibility and input in roadmap development and evidence of innovation and upcoming investment plans. Ability to ScaleThis criterion is assessed using evidence of client penetration in each supported geography combined with the localisation offering of the product. Breakdowns include North America, EMEA (Europe, Middle East and Africa) and Asia Pacific, as defined in the Appendix. Unlike previous reports where this was measured primarily in terms of spend under management, in this and future reports the breadth of geographical reach is assessed based on the number of countries in which the vendor is currently delivering VMS services. Note that Latin America is not featured due to the current immaturity of the market. Capability to support different size programs is also assessed using evidence of number of clients.Strategic Alignment to Wider BusinessThis is defined as maturity of functionality that best supports more strategic client talent objectives like total talent acquisition and strategic workforce planning functionality.Market Success and CollaborationMarket momentum is assessed through evidence of size and number of new VMS clients in the last 12 months as well as growth level above/below market average, cross-checked with financial growth. Collaboration is assessed through the sophistication of a vendor’s partnership approach to include process for partner due diligence, onboarding partners, certification of partners, productizing standard interfaces with named applications, types of partners, evidence of use of partners across the client base.Note that a review of client satisfaction through reference checking and cost to deliver – while part of our future differentiator roadmap -were not part of the process at this time and, as such, these scores do not take these issues into account.A total of 19 VMS providers submitted sufficient information to qualify for inclusion in this report. We believe this report is the most comprehensive on the VMS market with the greatest coverage of providers. Further, SIA are constantly working to encourage new participants to join. VMS participants for this year’s report included: 3 Story Software (a division of Hays) Agile•1 Beeline (as the IQN VMS roadmap and offerings are now aligned with the Beeline VMS, this participant only appears once) Brainnet Candex Connecting-Expertise (a division of Recruit) DCR Workforce Econometrix (a division of ManpowerGroup) iSymphony Medefis (a division of AMN Healthcare) Nétive VMS PeopleFluent VMS PIXID Pride One PRO Unlimited Provade Shiftwise (a division of AMN Healthcare) Work Nexus (a division of Superior Group) XRM Click the link below to download the report: VMS Market Developments - Part 3 20171127 - You do not have permission to view this object. &nbs […]
