The longer you stay in talent acquisition, the more complex it seems to become. I began my journey in a third party agency, moved into internal HR and corporate recruiting at a couple of SMBs and never in that time did I touch anything called a Recruitment Management System. The technology counterpart that makes business outsourcing (ahem, like RPO and HRO) possible, Management Systems have only just started to infiltrate beyond the Fortune 5000.
But the core understanding of what a recruitment management system actually is not widely understood by many in the recruiting business, in part because it’s hidden behind a service. That’s why Skillstream, a recruitment management system based in London pulled together this infographic on how they work, which departments need to weigh in on the decision, and the benefits of using a managed service provider of any kind.
