Different Recruitment Models Explained

Recruitment is a critical process for any organisation, as it plays a crucial role in attracting and hiring top talent. Over the years, different recruitment models have emerged, each offering unique advantages and disadvantages.

In this article, we will explore the various recruitment models and help you determine which offers the most value for modern business recruitment needs.

The traditional recruitment model is a common approach that involves hiring a recruitment agency to handle the recruitment process. This model is often used by organizations that don’t have the time, resources, or expertise to handle recruitment on their own. The traditional model can be effective, but it can also be time-consuming and costly.

The contingency recruitment model is another popular option. In this model, a recruitment agency is hired on a contingency basis, meaning that the agency only gets paid if they successfully place a candidate. This model can be cost-effective, but it can also lead to a lack of quality candidates and a lack of accountability.

The retained recruitment model is similar to the contingency model, but the recruitment agency is paid a retainer fee upfront. This model offers more control and accountability, as the agency is incentivized to deliver high-quality candidates. The downside is that it can be more expensive compared to the contingency model.

The embedded recruitment model is a newer approach that involves integrating the recruitment agency into the HR team. In this model, the agency’s recruiters work alongside the HR professionals to find and recruit top talent. This model offers a more personalized and flexible approach to recruitment, and is suitable for ongoing hiring support.

The recruitment process outsourcing (RPO) model is another option, in which the entire recruitment process is outsourced to an external agency. This model is often used by organizations that want to free up internal resources or improve the efficiency of the recruitment process. However, RPO can be expensive and may result in a loss of control over the recruitment process.
