Identifying and attracting the right talent in the shortest amount of time is a priority for companies. They often rely on recruitment process outsourcing (RPO) to address this dual challenge of quality and time-to-hire. While RPOs are in a unique position to reduce inefficiencies and improve the recruiting function’s efficacy, these processes have remained relatively transactional, even as the talent market has not. RPO providers have had to reinvent themselves and act more as consultants in order to play the strategic role in enhancing recruitment processes that HR leaders need today. Empowering companies to adopt a more holistic approach to recruiting and create a better experience for candidates is Newton Talent, a leading RPO provider. “Whether it’s outsourcing the entire recruiting process or enhancing recruiting function productivity, our approach helps accelerate time to hire while reducing costs,” says Patty Silbert, President of Newton Talent.

She further explains that the holistic approach is not only about understanding what positions need to be filled, but effectively communicating the unique value proposition of an organization to generate interest among potential candidates in the marketplace. To that end, Newton Talent performs a full diagnostic on a client’s recruitment process to identify any gaps and find areas of improvement that will help transform the talent acquisition function so that it can achieve long-term business goals and help HR be a better partner to the business. On a strategic level, Newton Talent helps organizations move away from the mindset of merely filling open positions to the concept of talent pipelining. If a company begins hiring only when a vacancy emerges, the best fit for the role may not be hired due to time constraints.
In contrast, Newton Talent helps companies engage and attract top talent—irrespective of whether they are seeking employment opportunities— and build a talent pipeline so that the recruitment process is accelerated without compromising the quality of talent.

Our approach helps ‘harmonize’ the talent acquisition function so that HR can be a better partner to the business

In keeping with modern times where smartphones are ubiquitous, Newton Talent utilizes mobile applications to connect with potential hires. Candidates can have their questions answered via text with chatbots and also watch videos regarding the responsibilities of a role they are interested in. Newton Talent also leverages artificial intelligence and other technologies to screen candidates faster and capturing metrics around the process of talent engagement. And in contrast to the approach of using LinkedIn and other job boards to find candidates, Newton Talent’s sourcing model is defined by using deep web search to find profiles of individuals based on unique candidate personas. This helps attract top talent who would otherwise be overlooked by recruiters solely relying on conventional means.

Newton Talent offers customized strategies to clients in every industry. For instance, a client in the technology sector had a time-to-fill of about 200 days, and they were also looking to hire Android software developers. However, the client did not command the same brand cachet as some of the other leading technology companies, and they were located in a region not particularly attractive to potential candidates. Leveraging different technologies and outreach strategies, Newton Talent helped the client build a talent pipeline and reduce the time-to-fill down to 35 days. The client was able to find top talent beyond the scope of traditional talent acquisition channels and meet their hiring goals. Moving forward, Newton Talent aims to launch a new service called Power Sourcing, a platform designed to help companies integrate sourcing into their recruiting strategy for a more timely and cost-effective approach that also increases candidate quality. While there is no one size fits all solution for recruitment, Newton Talent creates true strategic partnerships that empower clients to overcome recruitment challenges and achieve long term business goals.
