Recruitment process outsourcing

What is Recruitment Process Outsourcing (RPO)? Recruitment Process Outsourcing (RPO) is the act of transferring your recruitment process to an external company. RPO company’s capabilities range from simple recruiting help like posting to job boards to full-blown HR for your entire company.

There are a number of companies offering a wide variety of recruitment help, from posting your job on a job board to fully managing your virtual employee and all your immediate and future outsourcing needs. Depending on what types of tasks you need to be done, how big or small your business is, how much time you have to manage employees, and more will dictate which option will work best for you. I will give you the information you need to make the best decision for you and your business.

Managed Companies:

Virtual employee management companies like TaskBullet stay engaged in the day-to-day management of virtual employees. They will assign an Account Manager to you, recruit a virtual employee who will meet your needs, negotiate the pay rate based on experience and skill level, monitor the virtual employee, and offer health care, pay raises, training, and more, all while you pay a set hourly rate for hours used by your assigned virtual employee The more hours you purchase, the better the hourly rate you pay.

Referral Companies:

Referral companies like and Upwork will post your job on their job board which has a lot of eyes; it’s where freelancers go to find jobs. When they find one they like, they respond and the company notifies you, at which point you can begin the interviewing process. You can also review the hundreds of virtual employees who have their resumes posted and reach out to them if they fit the criteria you are looking for. These companies offer things like payment portals to assist you in paying your virtual employee and task management software to help in your communication, but that is essentially where their help ends. The things an HR department would handle are primarily left to you, which is an excellent option if you have the time and know-how to handle all that. The advantage of this system is that you can negotiate the pay rate directly with your employee and can often save money.

Which Option Is Best For You?

Depending on what you need your virtual employee to do for you will largely dictate which option you choose. If you have a lot of different one-time tasks that need to be done, you might find the referral option to be the better choice. On the other hand, you have ongoing tasks that might require some training or time for the virtual employee to get the hang of things. You will likely benefit from the structure of a managed service. With this option, you can still get your one-time tasks done because you have access to the whole team through your assigned account manager. Scale up your business, you will need help growing your team. The managed service companies will likely be better as they will be able to handle your growth and grow with you. Employees who work for the managed service tend to stay longer at your company, making the growth of your team and scaling of your business easier

Either way, you go, you will get a capable virtual employee who works hard for you and wants to be a part of your success. If you are sure which option is best for you but deciding between U.S. or Philippines-based

BUCKET SYSTEM vs. Employee

Sure, you could hire an ordinary employee to help grow your business, but do you really have enough small tasks to fill up 40 hours per week or even 20 hours per week every single week? If not, that employee will be spending downtime on your dime.

TaskBullet has eliminated this problem with what we call the BUCKET SYSTEM. Your remote employee will clock in when you need them and clock out when you don't. (Learn how it works here) With a remote personal assistant, you pay for the hours you need and nothing more. You'll save money on not having to provide employee benefits, office space, office supplies (computer, desk, coffee, etc.); oh, and did I mention downtime?

Your remote personal assistant will come with his or her own supplies, a strong education (TaskBullet virtual assistants have university degrees), and deep professional background. When you hire a virtual sales assistant from TaskBullet, you are also assigned a project manager to ensure that everything runs smoothly. What are you waiting for?
