HRO Today Announces “The Bakers Dozen”: Top RPO ProvidersComments Off

HRO Today Magazine today announced the carefully watched results of its annual Bakers Dozen ranking of major recruitment process outsourcing firms.

The results were based upon a survey completed by 262 HR executives who are current buyers of RPO services. The 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 3 lists: the Enterprise Bakers Dozen list, Global Leaders list and a list of leading Project/On Demand Providers.

The Bakers Dozen List, the flagship product of the survey, was developed from information culled on 45 firms that eventually reduced down to the final 13 that were then ranked according to a pre-determined set of indices.

In addition to the rankings, aggregate survey data about industry trends was also developed this year and can be found in the July/August issue of HRO Today magazine and will be presented at the upcoming RPO Summit in December 2008 in Washington, D.C. presented in concert with the RPOA (Recruitment Process Outsourcing Association), a special interest group of the HROA ( and the RPO buyers group of RPOA.
