The Recruitment Process Outsourcing Association announced Jan. 24 its board of directors for 2013-14. The organization is the first professional group for the recruitment process outsourcing industry, according to a release.

The RPOA is a nonprofit organization that offers peer-support and thought leadership for the RPO industry. The group seeks to educate the market about the industry, promote its benefits, incorporate common metrics and develop and enforce certification among other goals, according to the group's press release.
"The RPO space is incredibly underserved by the 'analyst' that serves it," says Capperella, who is Yoh's vice president of marketing. "Not only are the buyers increasing the sophistication with which they approach evaluation of the services, the services themselves are becoming more segmented to meet the demand of a changing market. As such, I firmly believe that we as practitioners must be committed to providing as much information and value to the entire ecosystem so that the discipline serves to advance the workforce related strategic objectives of even the smallest organizations seeking to take an outsourced approach to their recruiting needs."
