NelsonHall Launches “Speed-to-Source” Vendor Evaluation Tool for RPO

NelsonHall, the leading global BPO and IT outsourcing analyst firm, has today launched a new tool to assist Strategic Sourcing Managers in assessing vendor capability in Recruitment Process Outsourcing (RPO).

The RPO tool is available to NelsonHall clients here and is also available for a limited period free-of-charge to strategic sourcing managers.

The tool covers a number of RPO business situations including organizations seeking candidate attraction, talent management, multi-country RPO, and full service RPO.

Suppliers of RPO covered by this NelsonHall Vendor Evaluation and Assessment Tool (NEAT) include Alexander Mann Solutions (AMS); AllegisTalent2; Futurestep, a Korn Ferry company; Hays; Hudson; KellyOCG; Kenexa, an IBM company; ManpowerGroup Solutions; PeopleScout; Pinstripe & Ochre House; Randstad SourceRight; The RightThing, an ADP company; WilsonHCG; Yoh.

The NEAT (NelsonHall Vendor Evaluation & Assessment) tool for RPO, part of NelsonHall’s “speed-to-source” initiative, sits at the front-end of the vendor screening process and consists of a two-axis model: assessing vendors against

  • Their “ability to deliver immediate benefit” to buy-side organizations
  • Their “ability to meet client future requirements”.

The NEAT analyses themselves are based on a combination of vendor and client interviews. The vendors are scored against a wide range of criteria, establishing a number of scenarios, each with different weightings to represent a different business situation or client business need.

To add further value in speeding up the sourcing process clients are able to input their own weightings and tailor the tool to their requirements. So they might say: “This set of weightings for this business need looks about right to me but I want to place more emphasis here”. With this interactive tool, they can tailor the weightings to meet their own specific sourcing requirements.
