Contract Watch: RPO Deals

Yoh and ManpowerGroup Inc. (NYSE: MAN) both recently reported new recruitment process outsourcing deals. Yoh, a Philadelphia-based staffing firm, reported it will provide RPO services to Critigen, a technology consulting and information technology outsourcing firm. Yoh’s focus is to source, qualify and submit talent to fulfill Critigen’s needs in hard-to-find areas and improve the overall sourcing process.

“Yoh truly understands our unique culture and business and has the recruiting experience and expertise we need to bring top talent into our organization,” said Aretha Francois, recruiting coordinator for Critigen.

Critigen has more than 50 offices worldwide.

Separately, ManpowerGroup announced earlier this month that it signed a two-year RPO deal with Tait Communications, a New Zealand-based company with customers around the world. Tait provides radio systems to “public safety agencies, government services, utilities and urban transportation providers,” according to its website.

Tait first engaged with ManpowerGroup in August 2010 to source specialist research and development engineers for its Christchurch, New Zealand, headquarters. That initial project was expanded in January to the RPO deal for the company’s New Zealand operations.

ManpowerGroup’s RPO operations will include personnel in finance, information and communication technology, human resources, manufacturing, services, project management and specialist research and development engineers.

“We’re pleased to be bringing Manpower on board at a time when Tait Communications is growing and there’s a continuing need for us to recruit top talent both here in New Zealand and overseas,” said Wendy Lush, group human resources manager for Tait. “While their initial work with us had an engineering focus, this new contract with Manpower will get them involved in recruitment right across our Christchurch campus. So far they’ve filled over 100 roles for us and we look forward to working with them on sourcing the next generation of great Tait people.”
