Benefits of Cornerstone RPO

Specialized Recruitment Provider

We bring to our partnerships decades of combined corporate recruiting experience and an established knowledge of best practices and implementation strategies. But these are not cookie-cutter solutions. From the earliest stages of our partnership, we’ll work to streamline your approach to recruiting; identifying and defining each step of the process with the big picture in mind. We will build a unique solution that adapts as your needs and goals change over time. Solving recruiting challenges is what we do best; we want you to focus on what you do best.

Increased Quality of Candidates

Over the course of our partnership, we’ll help you transform your recruiting process from a traditional reactive model that continuously presents challenges into a highly efficient proactive model that sets up you and your team for continued, long-term success. With our consultative model, we will build your project team with the functional expertise to be successful in your industry. The ultimate result is higher interview-to-offer ratios and shorter time-to-hire cycles.

Flexible Solution

We’ll remove a lot of the stress and uncertainly involved with workforce planning. Our teams flex up and down based on your current, real-time hiring demand. And by implementing a variable cost model, your total cost of ownership will remain sustainable throughout the course of our partnership.

Key Performance Indicators and Service Level Agreements to measure success

We use real-time business intelligence tools to track performance throughout the duration of our projects.

  • Increased volume of candidates
  • Shortened time-to-hire cycles
  • Improved candidate quality
  • Decreased employee turnover

Continual tracking of these metrics show improvement within the recruiting process throughout the engagement.Measuring success is important in any relationship and Cornerstone RPO willingly uses this data to create KPIs/SLAs to ensure your continued return-on-investment.

Best-in-Industry Tools

Our recruiting consultants use a variety of tools to support our clients, including licenses to all major recruiting tools. The result is our cost gets to scale much faster, and we pass those savings directly to you.

Reduce or Eliminate costly 3rd party search fees

Many of us at Cornerstone RPO have worked for traditional staffing and headhunting firms at various points in our careers. Not only do these companies work strictly in the reactive world, but the costs can be astronomical. This is one of the many reasons we feel so strongly about the value of our RPO relationships.

Recruiting Background/What you enjoy about recruiting?
I have been in the recruiting field for many years. I had several positions with my first company in the industry. It was a personnel agency out of Chicago. I was with them for 19 years and left to move to Nashville to be closer to family. When I moved to Nashville I was the Director of Recruiting for a national photography company. The pandemic shifted my career path temporarily to outside sales but I missed recruiting and Cornerstone RPO came to my rescue. I love using my recruiting knowledge to help companies find quality employees and I love helping candidates find a job they will love.

Greatest (or most recent) professional success:
My greatest professional success has to be when a recruiter, who reported to me, told me I was the best Manager she had ever worked for. She stated that I empowered her to grow professionally and personally. She could feel that I cared for her and her successes and was always there to support her.

Unique talents/interests:
I am most proud of raising two wonderful daughters as a single mom. They are now grown but still need me to watch their dogs or check on their homes when they travel. Besides that, I love gardening and anything to do with water and the beach.
