Decision Toolbox Is Named One of the Top RPO Firms in the Nation for the Third Year in a Row

Irvine, Calif. — Decision Toolbox, an on-demand recruiting firm that provides end-to-end recruitment solutions for 7% cost per hire on average, has been named, for the third year in a row, to HRO Today Magazine’s 2011 Survey Results of Top RPO Firms in the nation.

The survey results were announced by HRO Today on August 18, 2011. The results were based upon a survey completed by nearly 500 HR executives from 266 companies who are current buyers of RPO services on more than 45 RPO providers. RPO providers were rated on the breadth of their service, the size of the programs they manage and the quality of service provided.

The market was grouped into three lists: 1) the Enterprise Bakers Dozen list, which consists of the top providers in RPO; 2) the Global Market Providers and 3) the top Mid-Market and Project/On-Demand Providers.

“We are honored to be in the top ten of the Project/On-Demand Providers list for three years in a row, says Kim Shepherd, CEO of Decision Toolbox. “Armed with the very latest tools and a team of seasoned recruiters, we are an on-demand recruiting department for all of our clients’ needs — from one critical search, to a large number of hires, to a complete RPO. Our approach to RPO is very different, in that we have no minimum volume requirements or time commitments. We prefer to lock our clients in with outstanding service, instead of large launch fees or cancellation costs.”

According to Elliot Clark, CEO of HRO Today, the Mid-market and Project/On-demand leaders “are firms that offer hiring programs that may be multi-year, but may not have programs that are in the same size and scale of the enterprise providers. They may also do project or on-demand programs. Depending on your needs, they make an excellent choice for your company.”
