Recruitment Process Outsourcing (RPO) has gained massive traction in recent years, with the sector posting a 17% annual growth rate. Despite the presence of RPO companies for over 20 years, the true USP of RPO services in terms of scaling quality workforces in a structured and quick manner has been truly leveraged by India Inc only in the past few years.

Companies of all sizes, especially in the IT sector, have begun recognizing RPO’s advantages to their recruitment process to fulfill their hiring goals, hire fast, and reduce attrition rates. The Indian RPO market comprises several global players and the general perception often sides with global players over Indian players, the common reason being that global RPOs come with more experience owing to their established global presence. We respectfully disagree.

Taggd has been at the forefront of the RPO industry in India for several years now, and has helped Indian as well as offshore companies set up strong workforces in India.

What Makes Taggd the Right Choice Over Global RPO Companies?

The services of RPO companies extend beyond merely recruiting candidates. They act as strategic talent acquisition partners who help build a high-performing and resilient workforce, while navigating the tricky waters of ever-evolving employee preferences and changing industry dynamics.

Taggd holds a distinct advantage over global RPO providers with its deep understanding of the Indian talent pool and the job market. Previously operating under the banner of PeopleStrong, the company has been in business since 2005 and occupied nearly 15% of India’s RPO market share in 2019.

Our team comprises recruitment veterans who have hands-on knowledge about the nature and scope of jobs in each industry which enables quicker and more informed decision-making.
