Thursday, November 21, 2013 | Outsourcing News |

According to a report created by one of the world’s largest recruitment & HR service providers, Randstand, 66 percent of businesses in Malaysia turn to outsourcing to supply talent for complex processes in niche industries.

Recruitment process outsourcing considered as a business tool

China is the top region with 72 percent, India takes second place with 70 percent, and Malaysia is at the third spot for countries that are considering recruitment process outsourcing (RPO) as a business tool.

Jasmin Kaur, Director at Randstand, said RPO enables companies to come up with a feasible solution to talent shortage challenges particularly for specialized skills by means of organizations focusing on building talent networks. RPO also promotes business continuity and streamlines processes.

Meanwhile, business owners took notice to the fact that they need a stable strategy regarding HR systems, workforce planning models, and recruitment selection processes to reinforce their respective teams and minimize attrition rates.

Kaur believes that proper motivation is necessary to retain skilled talent. The executive also said employers in Malaysia should analyze and collect more information about the local talent to identify the issues as to why Malaysian workers are leaving to work abroad.
