Recruitment Vendor Platform Comparison

What are the differences between platforms when comparing potential vendors?
Vendor Type No Fees | Charges for Each Hire or Requisition Partners with Internal HR | Recruitment Team* Screening, ATS**, Video Job Production Vendor Does Not Share Applicants with other Firms
logo check check check check
Retained Search Firm / Agency cross cross cross cross
RPO (Recruitment Process Outsourcing cross cross cross check
Contingency / Staffing Agency cross cross cross cross

*HR / Recruiters partner and share resources to help fill more positions since pay is based on the relationship and not individual hires. RPO does this to an extent (i.e. Applicant Tracking System), however RPO is designed to take ownership of the requisition. **ATS = Applicant Tracking System

Healthcare Executive Reference

“I think the relationship between the hospital and Ascend allows a community based hospital with limited resources the ability to exponentialize its recruiting efforts on a regional and national basis. Because of the use of technology and relevant marketing materials, we’re able to increase our footprint and frankly introduce us to candidates that would have never considered a hospital like ours.”

Recruiting Executive Reference

"HR Maximizer works for us because it is more like a partnership that is very responsive to our changing business needs. We saw almost an immediate impact as far as results are concerned, however it has been the ongoing relationship that has proven to be the most valuable to us. I look at it more as an extension of our recruiting department, as opposed to a transactional relationship.”
