1. What is Recruitment Process Outsourcing (RPO)?
Hyrian defines RPO as the transfer or delegation to an external service provider of the operation and day-to-day management of the recruitment process. Hyrian is one of only a handful of companies that provides a true RPO service. Because RPO has expanded rapidly over the past few years, many staffing companies and similar organizations use it to describe their services. Close examination, however, will likely reveal that the majority of these companies do not fit the RPO concept, nor do they have the relevant experience.

3. When should my company consider Hyrian OnDemand outsourced recruitment?
Are your requisitions not getting the attention they deserve? Not seeing enough of the right candidates? Is the process of finding and interviewing potential hires eating up precious hours in your workday? Perhaps you're buried in resumes or your HR department has its hands full with other matters. If any of these scenarios sound familiar, Hyrian OnDemand is the solution, whether your company needs to hire six people a year or six hundred.

4. How much time can Hyrian OnDemand save my company?
Hyrian OnDemand saves you time in two ways. First, we take the whole process out of your hands, from the avalanche of incoming resumes to the tedious screening of unqualified candidates. By managing every aspect of your recruiting process, we free up your time so you can concentrate on what you do best: your job. Second, we present you only a select group of interested, pre-qualified, available-to-interview candidates, allowing you to spend your time with only those candidates who are a realistic fit for your needs. On average, Hyrian OnDemand will save your company 18.5 hours per position.

5. How much money can Hyrian OnDemand save my company?
Hyrian OnDemand recruitment represents significant bottom-line value to small and midsize businesses. Requisition fees are less than national internal cost-per-hire averages. If you rely heavily on outside search firms, you could reduce your recruiting costs by 60-70% or more.

6. Does Hyrian OnDemand require a significant commitment?
No, you can use Hyrian OnDemand as you need it, whether it be for two hires or an entire new division. There are no minimum number of positions and no minimum commitments. Back to top >>
7. How does Hyrian OnDemand differ from a search firm?
When you engage Hyrian OnDemand, you are guaranteed a specific hiring process designed to locate the best candidates as quickly as possible, screen them thoroughly, and present you only those individuals who are interested, qualified and available. A contingency agency, paid only when you hire one of their candidates, has no incentive to run a thorough search and screening process, but rather has every incentive to "sell" you a candidate, regardless of their qualifications. For example, a contingency agency that checks references on the candidate could lose a $20,000 placement fee for reporting to you that a reference was less than stellar. Because Hyrian OnDemand is paid for the process, and not for the hire, we have no financial incentive for you to hire any particular candidate and therefore can guarantee you full, fair and complete disclosure on all candidates. We guarantee that we will work on your position until it is filled. On the other hand, a contingency agency may simply "give up" and stop working on one of your openings if they feel it is too hard to fill and they won't easily earn a placement fee. Everything in the Hyrian OnDemand model, from our process steps to our detailed internal and external quality assurance process, is designed to ensure that our services always revolve around you, the client.

Hyrian OnDemand puts you at the center of a revolutionary recruitment process. We start with your hiring needs. Whether you need one person or a hundred, specialists in each phase of the process work in concert to deliver the right candidates. Our proprietary distributed recruitmentSM process includes:
  • Hyrian OnDemand sourcing professionals access specialized industry networks, databases, social media platforms, blogs and chat communities to reach hard-to-find candidates.
  • An experienced recruiter who speaks with you to understand every aspect of the job, the work environment and your vision of an ideal candidate.

9. Can't we do all this internally?
Unless your company hires tens of thousands of people annually, you cannot match Hyrian OnDemand's economies of scale, expertise and ongoing investments in technology, talent and quality assurance. Recruitment is a complex, ever-changing, specialized discipline requiring significant investments in time and resources to stay on the cutting edge. By leveraging the scale and knowledge base of the outsourcing programs we provide for the Fortune 500 companies (representing literally tens of thousands of hires a year), we are able to offer small and midsize companies a level of service and expertise simply unattainable by smaller companies.

10. How do we get access to a bigger pool of candidates to meet our needs? Can you source hard-to-find positions?
Hyrian OnDemand's ability to access hard-to-find candidates begins with our deep and broad expertise. We have unmatched knowledge concerning the identification, recruitment and hiring of hard-to-find candidates. We utilize a multi-pronged sourcing approach, including research/direct sourcing, career fairs, and even direct mail when appropriate to ensure Hyrian OnDemand's own robust database of exceptional talent is constantly replenished. With continuous and ongoing networking, our sourcing team is able to reach even the hardest-to-find candidates, including those who aren't even looking for work. Using the latest online tools, proven 'headhunting' techniques and intelligent advertising, we can provide better candidate reach by region, industry and skill.

11. What if we need a lot of people in a hurry?
No problem. Hyrian OnDemand can work quickly to develop a tailor-made solution for your business, and then begin to implement that solution in as little as a few days. Our personnel, technology and expertise are available to meet virtually any staffing need-OnDemand.

12. With costs this low, you must be cutting corners somewhere, right?
Our success is largely due to the fact that we don't cut corners. With Hyrian OnDemand, low cost does not equal cut-rate service. We ensure that every position we handle receives the same painstaking attention to detail and service. We take the time early on in the recruitment process to build a solid foundation, starting with the Position Discovery, a detailed 45-minute interview with you that enables our recruiters to get a 360-degree view of your business, the position, and your ideal hire. Multiple teams of specialists then work in concert to identify, screen, interview and help you hire the right candidate, every time. Our focus on efficiency and our unparalleled scale and expertise ensure that we deliver high-quality results and world-class customer service at a competitive price.

13. How does Hyrian OnDemand charge for its services?
We charge a small fee each time you open a new requisition with us. We will invoice you for all new requisitions at the end of each month, payable in 30 days. We offer two pricing options: a la carte and subscription. Under an a la carte plan, you pay individually for each requisition and receive volume discounts as your monthly hiring volume increases. Under a subscription plan, in exchange for a monthly hiring volume commitment, you receive significantly discounted rates for all your hiring.

14. Why should I pay you upfront before I hire a candidate?
When you engage Hyrian OnDemand, you are paying for a guaranteed, best-of-breed hiring process. By paying for the process rather than for the hire, you can be assured that we devote the appropriate time and effort to your hiring, and that no financial incentive exists for us to misrepresent or oversell any individual candidate. By removing any financial incentive for the hire, you can rest easy knowing that the advice and feedback you receive from Hyrian OnDemand is unbiased and untainted by financial motive. A significant factor in our ability to deliver extremely competitive rates (one-third of the cost of a search firm) is that we are paid for all the work we do. A contingency agency or search firm, paid only at the point of hire, must recover their sunk cost for all work not resulting in a hire from the few positions they actually fill. Because the average contingency agency fills between one in five and one in ten positions they work on, the cost of the hire is equal to five to ten times the actual cost of the work for filling that individual position. Essentially, if you hire someone from a contingency agency and pay their fee, you are paying not just for your hire, but for all the work they did on all the positions they didn't hire that month.
