Evolv Launches Recruitment Process Outsourcing (RPO) Service with Built-in Candidate Quality Control

SAN DIEGO --(Business Wire)--

ERE EXPO - Evolv, the leading provider of data-driven workforce selection, today announced availability of its Recruitment Process Outsourcing (RPO) service for high volume hourly hiring. Evolv's new service delivers full recruitment outsourcing, from sourcing through skills testing and phone or in-person candidate screening. The service is already delivering "ready to hire" candidates pre-screened through Evolv's hiring intelligence platform to several large employers.

Evolv Solves Classic Problem of Traditional RPO

Evolv's RPO service is unique in that employers see how candidates were scored by Evolv's screening process. Evolv's analytics reporting shows clients how the scores relate directly to better performance against key metrics. Unlike traditional RPO vendors that focus solely on filling empty seats - only to disappoint on employee productivity, Evolv clients know that they're getting the best suited candidates for the position. With Evolv, quality-of-hire becomes a quantitatie metric, just like cost-per-fill and time-to-fill.


Like many maturing RPO services, Evolv's solution is flexible to meet the requirements of unique in-house recruiting processes. For some clients, the solution includes recruiters' on-site and full recruiting management, while other clients rely on Evolv simply for generating quality candidate flow. All clients benefit from Evolv's selection science, powered by a team of I/O psychologists and economists, which delivers substantially more productive candidates when compared with traditional screening methods.

"A key area of differentiation for Evolv's RPO is that, with our quality score, clients can hold us accountable for getting them the best possible agents," said Max Simkoff, co-founder and CEO of Evolv. "With Evolv's analytics, we show them that the scoring is accurate, and that they're really getting better outcomes. What Evolv delivers is measurably better candidates."

The market for cloud-based talent management software is skyrocketing, evidenced by recent acquisitions of SuccessFactors, Rypple and Taleo. According to Bersin & Associates, global talent management software revenue has grown 15% annually in recent years, reaching nearly $3 billion in 2011. According to NelsonHall's HRO forecast, RPO will have the highest growth of all HR services through the forecast period of 2015.
