iCoCo solves real problems for both RPO providers and buyers.
For RPO providers, talent technologies are essential to their success and growth. According to Everest Group’s 2021 report, the next generation of recruitment process outsourcing (RPO 4.0) will be automated and fully integrated talent solutions with single-sign-on access across multiple technology applications.
RPO providers who are able to combine service excellence and automated technology solutions will stay ahead in a competitive RPO marketplace. Keeping up with the evolving landscape of talent technology can be daunting for any size organization. iCoCo allows RPO providers to find and forge strategic partnerships with best-in-class technologies.
For small to midsize companies considering outsourcing their recruitment for the first time, there is a recognized need for a list of best-in-class recruiting providers (RPOs) and the talent technologies that support companies their size. Additionally, there are countless technology providers in the marketplace, making the buying process confusing and overwhelming. iCoCo enables recruiting buyers to find and connect with best-in-class recruiting providers and technologies.
In addition, iCoCo offers other resources to educate the iCoCo community and allow members to learn from each other through its peer forum.
What does iCoCo mean?
iCoCo is an acronym for "innovative community connections." The RPOA applied the Blue Skies approach to deciding on a name for the initiative. Our criteria for the name was to be playful, memorable, and powerful.
