Women in staffing and recruiting are still facing gender and inequity issues.

Women in the staffing and recruiting space lack recognition and growth opportunities according to a 2020 study conducted by ClearlyRated.

  • Women of all races were most likely to report making between $40 – $59k a year. For men of all races, the median reported earnings were $100 – $119k.
  • This inequitable distribution of compensation is further compounded by race.
  • Self-reported median income is lower for all female respondents, while women of color are virtually unrepresented at the highest tiers of compensation.
  • Women are 1.7x more likely than men to say that increasing the recognition they receive in their positions would increase their career growth, and overall less likely than men to agree that they receive recognition for a job well done. 

"People work for money but go the extra mile for recognition, praise and rewards." - Dale Carnegie

Together WE can be part of the solution by recognizing women in RPO.

Last year, the Women in RPO award made such an impact on those recognized. Women in RPO deserve to be celebrated for their contribution and impact they make every day.

While many other organizations present awards for women in different disciplines and functions, recruitment process outsourcing is a unique talent acquisition solution that deserves special attention. The Recruitment Process Outsourcing Association (RPOA) is the only organization that focuses on RPO as a unique discipline within the talent acquisition function.

For the second year, the RPOA is proud to present the Influential Woman in RPO and Rising Woman in RPO awards, the only recognition honoring women’s achievements in RPO.

“Celebrating women's achievements and increasing visibility, while calling out inequality, is key.” -International Women's Day
